Reggie Jackson Officially Out 6-8 Weeks After Knee, Thumb Injections

AUBURN HILLS (CBS Detroit) – The Detroit Pistons announced Monday that guard Reggie Jackson received platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections on Monday morning to treat left knee tendinous and an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) sprain of his right thumb.

Jackson is expected to miss approximately six to eight weeks and recovery will be monitored throughout the rehabilitation process.

Entering his second full season with the Pistons, Jackson was looking to build on a successful 2015-2016 campaign. The starting point guard averaged 18.8 points and 6.2 assists last season.

The 26-year-old was traded to the Pistons from the Oklahoma City Thunder in a deadline deal in February 2015. He signed a five-year, $80 million contract extension with Detroit in July 2015.
