Coach Stan Van Gundy has denied an ESPN report that there are currently ongoing trade discussions with the Timberwolves involving Reggie Jackson.
Van Gundy said the organization doesn't "have a single thing under consideration." However, that's what he would be expected to say if he was trying to hammer out a deal, so conflicting reports don't tell us much. We will keep an eye on the situation. Assuming that Jackson and Ricky Rubio are the primary pieces in the deal, such a trade would not have a major impact on either player's fantasy value. Jan 21 - 9:15 AM

The Wolves and Pistons have discussed a potential PG swap between Reggie Jackson and Ricky Rubio.

Both teams have really struggled this season so it's not a surprise that they are looking to shake things up. Both Jackson and Rubio are signed to long-term deals, so it would be a shock if they did not start on their new teams if a deal can be worked out. The two teams are in the "talking" stage for now, but we'll let you know when we learn more. Jackson's value would be safe in Minnesota and he would be a decent fit under coach Tom Thibodeau for his defensive prowess.

Reggie Jackson drained 10-of-20 shots en route to 26 points on Wednesday, adding five boards, four assists and two 3-pointers in an easy 118-95 win vs. Atlanta.

Detroit scored 42 points in the first quarter tonight, their highest-scoring quarter of the entire season, and Jackson was the early engine of the offense. He's really found a groove in January, averaging 19.5 points, 1.8 triples, 5.4 assists and 0.9 steals, which is more in line with his numbers from last season. His owners' patience is finally paying off.

Reggie Jackson voiced his frustration regarding the Pistons poor defense after getting blown out by the Jazz on Saturday.

"It has to be fixed -- or it's going to be a long (expletive) season," Jackson said. "It's been a season from hell so far. So it's going to be a long-(expletive) season if we don't find a way to fix it." Over the last 15 games, the Pistons possess the second-worst defensive rating in the NBA while allowing 111.0 points per game. Coach Stan Van Gundy has tried to tweak the lineup but hasn't found the right recipe. Jackson has struggled himself but his minutes will likely stay consistently high.

Reggie Jackson will start against the Warriors on Thursday.

On Tuesday, he had a dehydration issue for the second time in the last 12 months, so hopefully the Pistons do a better job in that department. He should be ready to go and will likely be asked to score a ton tonight.

Reggie Jackson (dehydration) practiced on Wednesday.

He should be all set for Thursday night against the big game at Golden State on Thursday. Jackson played a whopping 47 minutes against the Blazers on Sunday and played 31 minutes on Tuesday before his dehydration. He looks like he's trending up. It's worth a mention he had a dehydration issue back in February, so someone needs to get him some water and/or electrolytes.
Jan 11 - 7:45 PM

Reggie Jackson was treated for dehydration following Detroit's 100-94 loss to Sacramento on Tuesday.

Jackson has dealt with hydration issues in the past, but it's never been something that has forced him to the sidelines, so he should be just fine for Thursday's game in Oakland. After a slow start to the year, Jackson has been rolling over the past seven games, posting top-50 value behind averages of 21.9 points, 6.7 assists, 2.0 triples and 2.4 turnovers per game on 48.0 percent shooting. This is probably his peak, so owners may want to pursue some sell-high opportunities.

Reggie Jackson said that the Pistons' defensive problems are "beyond schematic."

"People just walk into the paint. People are literally shooting warmup shots that’s like drill work," said Jackson. "It’s a joke. It’s something that we gotta do. Coach can’t do nothing about it. It don’t matter if he has a scheme or not or not a scheme." Jackson may be part of the problem with a defensive differential of 5.8 on the season, although his offensive game is finally starting to come around. Over the past three, he's produced 22.3 points, 2.3 triples, 8.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game.

Reggie Jackson hit 8-of-18 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, seven rebounds, a season-high 12 assists and two steals in 32 minutes of Tuesday's 121-116 loss to the Pacers.

The Pacers give it up to opposing point guards and Jackson was great in this one. He has now scored at least 20 in three straight games and is averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five. It took him a minute to get going after missing the entire month of November, but is really turning it on now.
Jan 3 - 10:35 PM

Reggie Jackson scored a season-high 27 points on Sunday, hitting 10-of-17 shots with two 3-pointers, four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes.

It should be noted that the Heat were decimated by injuries tonight, and Rodney McGruder started at PG, but that doesn't make Jackson's big game any less appealing. He's been shooting around 40 percent from the field in Detroit's past dozen games, so it's nice to see him scoring with efficiency tonight. He hasn't been too impressive since returning from injury, but the buy-low window is starting to slide shut.
Jan 1 - 9:48 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 14 points with three rebounds, six assists, one block, no turnovers and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes during a 119-94 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.

Coach Stan Van Gundy had a bit of a new wrinkle tonight with Jackson logging six minutes next to Ish Smith, which only happened for four minutes before tonight on the season. Jackson still hasn't quite played well since his knee injury and may not be able to hit early-round value. If his owner is uneasy, he's a bit of a buy-low player.

Reggie Jackson briefly exited Wednesday's game with a sore left knee, but he returned to finish with 18 points (6-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), seven assists and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

Jackson's left knee was the one that required PRP treatment in October, so we'll be keeping a very close eye on him in the coming days. Ish Smith would instantly gain value if Jax is forced to miss any time, but he looked good after returning and for now we'll consider him probable for Friday's home game vs. the Warriors. Check back for updates after practice on Thursday.

Reggie Jackson (sore left knee) has returned to action to start the second quarter on Wednesday.

After just two minutes in the first quarter, he limped slowly back to the bench and went to get locker room. Jackson returned to the bench about two minutes later and looked to have a heat pack on his left knee. This is the same knee that needed PRP treatment, so this is something to watch. We'll let you know how he looks the rest of the way. For now, it sounds like he'll be OK.

Reggie Jackson went to the locker room with 10 minutes left in the first quarter on Wednesday.

It was tough to tell what went wrong with Jackson, but it looked like it was related to his left leg. This is the same left leg that needed PRP treatment, so hopefully that's not the issue. Jackson was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power. If he needs to miss time, Ish Smith will be busy. We'll have an update shortly.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 07:48:00 PM

Reggie Jackson scored just seven points in Monday's loss to the Bulls.

He was just 2-of-5 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with three assists, one rebound and two steals in 24 minutes. Coach Stan Van Gundy said after the game that he will change his starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis, and while it would be a surprise if Jackson was benched, it should be noted that the Pistons are just 3-6 since he returned from his knee injury. If Jackson were to be benched, Ish Smith would get the promotion.
