The Pistons have offered up some questionable injury reports of late, but this one may take the cake as the most bizarre yet. Jackson played 22 minutes in Monday's loss to the Magic, but he finished with just six points on 2-of-10 shooting. Assuming the tooth issue is legitimate -- Jackson hasn't been among the Pistons' usual rest casualties -- consider him day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game versus Memphis.
Jackson will come off the bench Monday against the Magic, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started in his past 17 appearances, but he'll move to the bench for Monday's contest. Jackson should still seen plenty of action as a reserve with the Pistons missing the likes of Jerami Grant (knee), Cory Joseph (ankle) and Wayne Ellington (calf), among other players.

The good news is the illness is non-COVID-19-related, but it will cost Jackson at least one game as the Pistons begin a three-game week. He'll have a pair of off days Tuesday and Wednesday to recover before Thursday's home matchup against Dallas.
Jackson (illness) has been added to the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Hawks.

Jackson scored 29 points (11-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-9 FT) and grabbed four rebounds across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Spurs.

Jackson scored 16 points (5-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go along with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Jackson showed little hesitation in getting up his shot and led the team with 16 attempts from the field. He struggled mightily to get those shots to fall, particularly from three-point range, but still managed to score in double digits for the third consecutive game. His four assists were atypical, as he had managed three or fewer dimes in eight straight contests prior to Monday's effort.

Jackson had 26 points (10-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 29 minutes during Sunday's 131-124 loss to the Clippers.
Jackson continued on his merry way during the loss, taking advantage of the fact the Pistons were without a number of regular rotational pieces. After a mini-breakout earlier in the season, Jackson fell out of the rotation before being handed additional responsibility once again, seemingly due to necessity. As long as he is hot, GMs can simply pick him up and ride this out until he cools off.
Jackson finished Saturday's loss to Portland with 21 points (7-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes.
Jackson was nearly perfect from beyond the arc in the loss, making 5-of-6 tries from deep while the remainder of his team went just 4-for-20. The fourth-year guard is shooting only 31.1 percent from three-point range this season, however, so Saturday's efficient outing isn't likely to be a frequent occurrence moving forward.
