A healthy Reggie Jackson

The Pistons need Reggie Jackson, period. Detroit’s record is well above .500 when they have their starting point guard and leader on the floor - the problem is Jackson has missed more games than he has played over the past two seasons. Last year, Detroit fell to a bottom three offense in the NBA without Jackson for a long stretch. Jackson missed 37 games in the 2017-18 season, something that can’t happen in the 2018-19 season if Detroit is going to make a run at the East crown.
