Reggie Jackson said that he'll be spending a lot of time in the film room this summer trying to figure out how to attack defenses, and acknowledged that he needs to be a quicker decision maker next season.
"Figuring out how to attack defenses, be a starter (on offense) and figure out how teams were covering me," Jackson said. "Just seeing where people challenged me and made me [have a] bad games, so I can try and go in and improve on those aspects and really see what guys did. I need to be better with quicker decisions." Jackson does tend to over dribble, so it's admirable that he's already looking to rectify that part of his game. Additionally, Jackson said that a trip to the Finals will be Detroit's goal for next year. Apr 27 - 10:19 AM

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points during a 101-91 Game 3 loss on Friday, adding four rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

He had a terrific first quarter with seven points, three assists and one steal, but made just 2-of-10 in the second half. Jackson has been exploited on defense in this series with Kyrie Irving batting 1.000 against the Pistons. The Pistons will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday at home.
Apr 22 - 10:02 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Wednesday's loss, adding six assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one turnover in 37 minutes of action.

Jackson said his team was confident in their first-round series vs. the Cavs, whom he dubbed "Goliath," and to their credit the No. 8 seed has shown impressive tenacity. They still face a 2-0 deficit, however, and need to get more production from their second unit -- the starters fared well tonight before tiring down the stretch, but the key reserves had an average +/- rating of -17.3.
Apr 20 - 10:58 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdomen) scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Cavs, adding seven assists, two rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers and three turnovers through 34 minutes.

Jackson started the game out overly passive, putting up just three shots through the first half of action, and then he became overly aggressive during the fourth quarter forcing up tough shots and over dribbling. He posted a plus/minus rating of minus-11 in this one, and he'll need to be much better if the Pistons hope to upset the No. 1 seeded Cavs during their first-round series.
Apr 17 - 6:08 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdomen) is "good to go" for Game 1 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

He went through a full practice on Friday and this was the expectation all along. Jackson also said that the Pistons held him out of the final two games of the regular season as a precaution, so he shouldn't be limited in the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 1:35 PM

Reggie Jackson is "optimistic" that he will be ready for Game 1 on Sunday vs. the Cavaliers.

"I definitely felt better today," Jackson said on Wednesday. "I didn’t get the chance to do too much movement or anything of a basketball nature to find out how well it is, but I’m very optimistic. I feel a lot better." R-Jax wanted to play in the final two games of the regular season, but the Pistons held him out as a precaution. This is great news for Detroit and it sounds like he's fully expected to play after going through a full practice on Friday.
Apr 15 - 11:35 AM

Reggie Jackson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond will not play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

It's rest for the Pistons as the NBA most-played lineup at 915 minutes -- that includes Ersan Ilyasova and not Tobias Harris, of course. Jackson is on the injury report with an abdominal strain, but it seems minor. He should be ready to roll for Game 1 over the weekend.
Apr 13 - 6:43 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Cavs.

The Pistons are locked into the No. 8 seed out East, so there's really zero incentive for Jackson to play and perhaps risk a more serious injury. Steve Blake will start, with Spencer Dinwiddie and Lorenzo Brown splitting the backup minutes.
Apr 13 - 9:30 AM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) said he expects to be "OK" for the playoffs.

He was a late scratch for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat and this likely means he will not be able to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. The Pistons have already been locked into the No. 8 seed in the East, so they won't risk him at less than 100 percent. Steve Blake will likely draw another start on Wednesday with Spencer Dinwiddie backing him up off the bench.
Apr 12 - 10:45 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) is a late scratch on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

This comes out of nowhere and it sounds like the Pistons want to be cautious with playoffs right around the corner. Steve Blake is fully expected to start, but he's not a great option in fantasy due to his low upside. It's still unclear if Jackson will be able to return on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. For what it's worth, Stan Van Gundy said he's day-to-day.
Apr 12 - 7:08 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 39 points during a 112-99 win over the Wizards on Friday, adding four rebounds, nine assists, four 3-pointers and five turnovers.

The Pistons are in the playoffs and are now in the seven seed with a half game up on the Pacers. Jackson was one off his career-high 40 points in this game as he was able to return it around from a mini-slump. Jackson likely won't be rested unless the Pistons are locked into their playoff seed.
Apr 9 - 12:23 AM

Reggie Jackson scored a team-high 22 points against the Bulls during a 94-90 win on Saturday, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal, six turnovers and two 3-pointers on 6-of-17 from the field.

It wasn't his best game, but it was a nice improvement from arguably his worst game as a Piston on Friday. This win was the biggest win of the season for the Pistons with a 2.5-game cushion to remain in the postseason. Jackson will need to play a lot better for the Pistons to even make noise in the first round.
Apr 2 - 11:08 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 11 points with five rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and six turnovers against the Mavs on Friday.

It was one of his worst games. Jackson's defense was terrible at times and he made just 3-of-15 from the field on the offensive end. In other words, he ended 23 possessions and he managed just 11 points. Jackson only has 11th-round value in standard leagues since the break and has been disappointing all season.
Apr 1 - 10:25 PM

Russell Westbrook indicated that he did not appreciate Reggie Jackson's animated celebration during the closing seconds of the Pistons 88-82 win over the Thunder on Tuesday.

"Yeah, I did actually," Westbrook said when asked if he disapproved. "It doesn't matter, man. Honestly, he wasn't changing nothing for us. Obviously, he didn't want to be here. He's at a better spot. He's not doing too much of a difference, if you ask me. So, he [is] going to stay over here in Detroit, we're going to stay over here, and we'll see him next season." This wasn’t the first time that Westbrook has taken some jabs at Jackson, and it's sure not to be the last.

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points on 4-of-15 shooting with six assists, one board, one steal, one block and four turnovers in a win over the Thunder on Monday.

He didn't play well, but hit some clutch free throws down the stretch to seal the win against his former team. Jackson even started to celebrate before the end of the game and had some words with Steven Adams, so you could tell how bad he wanted this one. You can see his reaction in the link below.
