The Detroit Pistons are fighting to stay in the playoff hunt, but they will have Reggie Jackson back Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns.
According to Rod Beard of the The Detroit News, Jackson will return to the lineup for the first time since suffering a right ankle sprain Dec. 26. Jackson is slated to start at point guard and play about 15-16 minutes, Beard tweeted.
