Reggie Jackson had a solid game vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, maximizing his 19 points off the bench with 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting with three triples and four assists.
Jackson didn't need a lot of time to put up his line. Unfortunately, he's not done enough on a regular basis to warrant an add in 16-team leagues or shallower right now. The Clippers' backcourt is simply too crowded for managers to trust R-Jax at this time.

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Lakers have signed Dion Waiters to a contract for the rest of the season.
The Lakers have been searching for additional ball-handlers since the trade deadline to help take some of the load off of LeBron James. They missed on Darren Collison and Reggie Jackson before signing Waiters. He will be competing for minutes with Alex Caruso and Rajon Rondo. In all likelihood, Waiters will come off the bench and play enough of a role to have value in deeper leagues but should not be added in standard leagues.

March 1, 2020, 8:41 pmLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams went for 24 points (8-of-12 FG), eight assists, three 3-pointers and one steal versus the Sixers on Sunday.
Williams was an uncharacteristic 5-of-8 from the charity stripe, but beyond that wart, there was not much to complain about with this showing. Williams is a stable option in standard leagues, but he is not going to pop off for anything special as long as the rest of the roster around him is healthy. That includes the newly imported Reggie Jackson who put up 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and two blocks in just 19 minutes. Jackson has had three strong showings for the Clippers, but he is just a hot deep league option while receiving minutes in the teens.

Patrick Beverley looked off his game as he missed his lone shot attempt from the field for zero points, three rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes on Friday.
That's pretty much rock-bottom for a not-injured PatBev. Owners will just have to write this stinker off as he's capable of bringing it strong and ticking multiple category boxes on most nights. Stay patient. Off the bench, Reggie Jackson flirted with a triple-double, recording 10 points (4-of-6 shooting), eight rebounds, seven assists, two 3s and one steal in 19 minutes.

Reggie Jackson started in his Clippers debut on Saturday but wasn't anything special, producing eight points, four assists and two 3-pointers on 3-of-9 shooting in 23 minutes.
Jackson may hold low-end value while Patrick Beverley is out but will just be a depth option when the Clippers are fully healthy. Even now, he's not a recommended option if you're trying to preserve FG% and is really just a specialist for threes and assists.
February 22, 2020, 2:03 pmReggie JacksonPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Reggie Jackson will pick up the start in place of Patrick Beverley against the Kings on Saturday.
This allows Lou Williams to stay in the sixth man role as Landry Shamet will start alongside Jackson in the back court. This was not the ideal landing spot for Jackson but he should be looking at good minutes as long as Beverley and Paul George remain out.

Patrick Beverley (right groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's contest with the Kings.
Beverley missed the prior four games leading up to the All-Star break and, even though he practiced in full on Friday, was deemed unready to go on Saturday. Once he returns from injury, it will be interesting to see how he fits into the Clippers' plans the rest of the way with Reggie Jackson in the fold now. Beverley's value could take a hit or it could remain relatively the same, as he and Jackson have yet to take the floor together yet.

Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) will not play on Thursday.
Kennard's timetable is still unclear, but Reggie Jackson's buyout should give him added value when he rejoins the Pistons. Kennard has enjoyed his finest season to date in compiling 15.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game.

Reggie Jackson reportedly has his sights set on joining the Clippers after reaching a buyout agreement with the Pistons on Tuesday.
The Clippers were among the favorites to land Darren Collison before he decided to stay retired. Jackson has been playing well for fantasy teams lately, but this is obviously a massive blow to his fantasy value. Jackson will compete with Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet for guard minutes moving forward. Bruce Brown Jr., Svi Mykhailuk, Derrick Rose and possibly Luke Kennard (knee) all stand to benefit with additional minutes and usage with Jackson now gone. It is worth searching the waiver wire to see if any of the Pistons guards are on your league's waiver wire.

February 12, 2020, 5:49 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose (adductor strain) and Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) will both play and come off the bench for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Magic.
Both players will be returning to action for the last game before the All-Star break. They both have missed five consecutive games. With their return, Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown Jr. could lose some minutes and see their fantasy values decline. This will definitely be a situation to monitor after the All-Star break as the team is still waiting for the return of Luke Kennard. Kennard is expected to play sometime after the All-Star break. Rose is the only player out of the four that is worth starting in standard leagues.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) practiced on Tuesday, but his availability for Wednesday's game against the Magic has yet to be determined.
Mykhailiuk had put together a few weeks of solid, low-end standard league value, but Detroit's backcourt could be getting back a couple of pieces after the All-Star break. Every single guard in Detroit is on thin ice when it comes to their fantasy values, as it's hard to see five fantasy relevant players produce concurrently in this putrid offense.

Reggie Jackson shot a dismal 2-for-11 from the field and was limited to eight points, two 3s, one rebound and three assists.
Jackson was tearing it up prior to this, so he should be in line for a bounce-back performance. Jackson does hurt FG% and turnovers on most nights, but will be able to bring scoring, threes and dimes when he's cooking.
February 8, 2020, 10:00 pmReggie JacksonPG, Detroit Pistons
Reggie Jackson led the Pistons on Saturday, posting 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting, adding nine dimes, two rebounds, three triples and one steal.
Jackson is thriving in the absence of Derrick Rose (adductor strain). His value might have a short-term half-life, given Rose's return and/or a potential buyout situation with Detroit.
February 8, 2020, 1:56 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose (Adductor strain) will remain out on Saturday against the Knicks.
It was reported that Rose might remain out through the All-Star Break so this is no surprise. Reggie Jackson, Bruce Bowen and Langston Galloway will continue splitting most of the backcourt minutes while Luke Kennard, Derrick Rose and Svi Mykhailiuk remain out.
February 7, 2020, 10:36 pmReggie JacksonPG, Detroit Pistons
Reggie Jackson dropped in 28 points (11-for-18 shooting), three rebounds, three assists and three triples in Friday's loss to the Thunder.
Jackson continues to start with Derrick Rose out and he put up a very nice line in this one. He can be counted on as a streamer while Rose continues to miss time but is already surfacing in buyout rumors so his value is fluid to say the least.
