Reggie Jackson Not Close To Return

Published

on

The Detroit Pistons are in the midst of a playoff push but they will have to wait a bit longer if guard Reggie Jackson is to join them down the stretch.

Jackson has been out of the Pistons lineup since suffering a right ankle sprain earlier this season and having him back would help Detroit push for a playoff spot.

However, Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy says there Jackson shouldn’t be rushed back into the lineup and that he isn’t very close to making a return to action.

“He’s okay, but there’s nothing imminent with him” Van Gundy said, according to The Detroit News’ Rob Beard.

“He’s doing his rehab and he did a little bit of 1-on-1 against one of the video guys today, but that’s as far along as he is.”

Detroit may a bold move to be playoff contenders, signified by the trade for Blake Griffin, and having Jackson back in the lineup will go a long way in helping them become just that, but it remains to be seen if Jackson makes a return the rest of the season.

Pistons’ Reggie Jackson Says Teams Takes Andre Drummond for Granted

Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson is heaping praise on his teammate, big man Andre Drummond, who he feels that the team often times takes for granted.

“I’d be lying if I said we didn’t [take Drummond for granted],” Jackson said, according to Vince Ellis of Detroit Free Press. “I think a lot of times we rely on him heavily for rebounds. On some nights when we get outrebounded, we’re solely looking for him to do it and not necessarily always helping him.”

“When you get a guy who over the last few years get around 14, 15 (rebounds per game), unfortunately it’s hard not to take him for granted, but we definitely appreciate him being the best (rebounder).”

Drummond is having a solid season, posting 18.9 points, 16.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
