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.

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.

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.
February 6, 2020, 6:02 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose (Adductor strain) will not play in Friday's matchup vs. the Thunder.
Rose has been having an excellent season and his name popped up in rumors ahead of the trade deadline. He will stay with the Pistons but will miss his third straight game on Friday. Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown will be in line for additional minutes on Friday.

Reggie Jackson started for the Pistons on Wednseday and netted 25 points on 10-of-24 shooting to go with five rebounds, nine assists and a steal.
Jackson got the start with Derrick Rose on the sideline. If Rose gets moved or sees any extended absence, you can rely on Jackson as a decent streamer in standard leagues.
February 4, 2020, 5:42 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose (left adductor strain) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Suns.
Rose may have played his last game as a Piston with the trade deadline on Thursday. With Rose and Svi Mykhailuk both out for this one, look for Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown to once again start in the backcourt.

February 3, 2020, 11:57 pmSekou DoumbouyaPF, Detroit Pistons
Sekou Doumbouya may have shot 2-for-5 from deep on Monday, but he missed all 10 of his 2-point shots on his way to a six-point, seven-rebound, one-assist, two-steal performance in 26 minutes.
It's a tough reminder that even though exciting young players like Doumbouya might be getting big minutes and usage, they can still be a detriment to fantasy teams. He had three turnovers in addition to the inefficiency in this one. Better days are certainly ahead for the relatively raw rookie. And it's not just rookies that can sink your field goal percentage as Reggie Jackson reminded us on Monday with his 1-for-16 shooting display.
