Pistons’ Reggie Jackson, Andre Drummond questionable to face Kings
Jackson has only played in two games this season because of a back injury, while Drummond suffered a lip laceration on Monday versus the Washington Wizards:

Jackson played in all 82 games last season for the Pistons. He put up 15.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game while shooting 42.1 percent overall, 36.9 percent from the 3-point line and 86.4 percent from the charity stripe.
Jackson is making $18.1 million this season. He will enter unrestricted free agency next summer.
The Pistons are 16-28 on the season. They are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Some pundits believe Detroit just needs to tear the roster down and embark on a rebuild. Like Jackson, Drummond can enter unrestricted free agency next summer if he declines his 2020-21 player option with the Pistons. The All-Star center is expected to be traded before the February trade deadline.
Blake Griffin was a shell of himself after undergoing left knee surgery this past summer before undergoing another surgery this season, which will keep him out indefinitely. The Pistons have yet to win three games in a row this season.
