Reggie Jackson scored 26 points on 10-of-15 from the field during a 112-104 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers.
That's a very efficient line with low turnovers, which have seen a very nice improvement recently. In his last five, Jackson averaged 19.2 points, 1.8 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 2.4 treys and 1.4 turnovers on 47.9 percent from the field. Once the assists start to come around, Jackson should start to be that top-50 player his owners drafted. Feb 6 - 10:09 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 21 points against the Knicks on Thursday during a 111-105 win, adding one rebound, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He hit a clutch three to help get his team the win. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a 17.3 usage rate next to Jackson this year, so that should mean there will be more pick-and-roll plays for Reggie to buoy his usage rate -- no player after the break had more shots in PNR than RJ last year. Expect Jackson to get out of his slump in the near future.
Feb 4 - 10:46 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 19 points with three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

He's been dealing with some dehydration and he looked to have some cramping with his calves tonight. Jackson will get Tuesday off before he gets a date with the Celtics in Boston for Wednesday. Expect him to be healthy for that one.
Feb 1 - 10:54 PM

Reggie Jackson (dehydration) will play on Monday vs. the Nets.

His status was never really in doubt and Jackson was able to play 28 minutes on Saturday despite dealing with the same issue. R-Jax should be feeling a lot better and belongs in all active lineups.
Feb 1 - 6:43 PM

Reggie Jackson (dehydration) and Ersan Ilyasova (adductor) are expected to play on Monday vs. the Nets.

R-Jax played just 28 minutes on Saturday after coming in questionable due to dehydration, and he actually had to receive fluids after the game as a result. Regardless, he's good to go on Monday, which will keep Brandon Jennings in his bench role. Ilaysova sat out Saturday's game with the adductor strain, but it looks like he'll wind up missing just a single game.
Feb 1 - 12:25 PM

Reggie Jackson played 28 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday with 13 points, one rebound, one assist and one steal.

He did not close this game out and really didn't look right. Jackson was grimacing a little toward the end of the third quarter, but it might have just been due to him being tired because he was on the injury report for dehydration today. Additionally, the Pistons finally busted out a lineup of Jackson and Brandon Jennings, who closed the game for Jackson. Expect Jackson to be better on Monday against the Nets.
Jan 30 - 9:31 PM

Reggie Jackson (dehydration) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will play Saturday against the Raptors.

RJ closed out Friday night until there were just 98 seconds left when the game was basically over. Jackson is warming up, so he should be somewhat close to 100 percent. If he's limited, Brandon Jennings would be picking up more run.

Reggie Jackson is questionable for Saturday against the Raptors.

He closed out Friday night until there were just 98 seconds left when the game was over. Jackson is warming up, so he's closer to probable. If he's out, Brandon Jennings would be a hot fantasy target tonight while Steve Blake backs him up.
Jan 30 - 5:53 PM

Reggie Jackson led the Pistons to a win vs. the Sixers on Wednesday, scoring 27 points with four 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds, one steal and only two turnovers.

Jackson earned heaps of praise from Stan Van Gundy after Monday's game ("I've never seen him work to that level [defensively] like he did tonight") and he kept it going tonight, helping limit Ish Smith to 13 points on 18 shot attempts. R-Jax also got to the line five times tonight, a bit higher than his season average, which is worth watching since he recently complained about a lack of calls. His owners can only hope it becomes a trend.
Jan 27 - 11:19 PM

Reggie Jackson was phenomenal in Monday's 95-92 win over the Jazz, scoring 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting.

He also added four assists, three boards, one steal and three 3-pointers, and he turned the ball over just once. Jackson hasn't played well in January, but hopefully he can build some momentum off this performance and have another big game vs. the woeful 76ers on Wednesday. Brandon Jennings is still not a threat and finished with one point and four assists in 17 minutes.
Jan 26 - 2:27 AM

Reggie Jackson agreed with Stan Van Gundy's recent criticism of Detroit's defense.

SVG recently called the defensive effort "deplorable," and his starting point guard is on the same page as his head coach. "Even when we have want-to, we have to communicate," Jackson said. "That’s what’s dropped off; we have to talk to each other on the defensive end and figure things out and we’ll be all right." Jackson has struggled on both sides of the ball in January, averaging just 15.5 points, 7.2 assists and 1.1 3-pointers on 42.1 percent shooting.
Jan 25 - 9:12 AM

Reggie Jackson said that he's "tired" of not getting to the line, despite ranking fourth-overall in the league in drives per game.

"I'm tired of this. I'm tired of this. I've got the most drives in the league, I'm averaging maybe three free throws," Jackson said. "It's just crazy." Jackson does have a point here, as the guys ahead of him in drives per-game (DeMar DeRozan, Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe) all average significantly more free throw attempts than Reggie, and he's down to just 2.5 free throw attempts per game through the month of January. He may be fined from the league for making this point, though.

Reggie Jackson scored eight points with five assists and four turnovers in 28 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

He looked visibly frustrated as he came out of the game for the last time in the fourth quarter and it might have been for his poor play. Jackson isn't playing his best ball and you could argue Brandon Jennings is outplaying him. Still, Jackson should be fine and he can be viewed as a buy-low player to a degree.
Jan 21 - 10:24 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 19 points with six assists in Monday's loss to the Bulls, adding three boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

After two sub-par performances against the Grizzlies and Spurs last week, Jackson has now played well in two straight games. He was never in danger of losing his spot to Brandon Jennins (ankle), and he is locked in as a must-start option for the rest of the season.
Jan 18 - 6:46 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal, no turnovers and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The no turnovers is probably the best part of this for coach Stan Van Gundy. Jackson did not close out Thursday's game with Brandon Jennings taking over, but Jennings got hurt tonight. Even if Jennings is OK, Jackson's job is totally safe.
