The Detroit Pistons will shut Reggie Jackson down for the rest of the season. Jackson never was able to get fully back following his plasma injection to treat tendinitis in his left knee.
"He won't play these last four games," Stan Van Gundy said. "The plan was to sort of let him step away and clear his mind and go into the offseason without a bad taste in his mouth."
Jackson has been inactive the last five games.
"Reggie was struggling, and for good reason," Van Gundy said. "(There was) a lot of stuff out of his control, and it was weighing on him. We thought at that time sort of being fresh-minded would not only be good for him, but being fresh-minded would help us."
