Reggie Jackson thinks his left knee is fine. But the Detroit Pistons point guard looking for a bounce-back season won’t know for sure until he’s getting up and down the floor with ease when the season starts a little less than a month from now. But after the trials of last season, Jackson is confident that after an off-season geared toward doing a better job of managing the chronic case of tendinitis, he is back to normal. “One hundred percent would always be great to feel, but this year I just want to be better than I was the day before,” Jackson said Wednesday at the practice facility in Auburn Hills. “With my knee, I’m feeling good. With the health of it, I’m feeling great. I just got to do the best I can to take care of it. The team is doing a great job of monitoring it. I’ve had no setbacks. I’m on pace, which is to be ready by training camp.” He just completed a 16-week protocol geared toward reducing the wear-and-tear of normal off-season conditioning. His basketball activities had been regulated to light shooting and some jumping off one leg under the supervision of Pistons physical therapist Mark Cranston.
