The Detroit Pistons announced Wednesday that guard Reggie Jackson suffered a Grade 3 ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated in six-to-eight, according to James Edwards III of The Athletic. "The X-rays were negative," head coach Stan Van Gundy said Tuesday evening, per Edwards. "He has an ankle sprain. He'll get an MRI tomorrow and see where we are." This is a difficult setback for Jackson, especially since he dealt with knee tendinitis and a thumb injury last season on his way to 52 games. Durability was one of his strong points in the recent past, considering he played at least 70 contests four straight years from 2012-13 to 2015-16. This is Jackson's third full season with the Pistons, who acquired him via trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder. He is averaging 14.6 points and 5.5 assists per game.
