The Detroit Pistons are preparing to be without standout point guard Reggie Jackson at the start of the season.

Jackson is expected to miss six to eight weeks with knee and thumb problems. The team said Monday that the 26-year-old Jackson had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to treat left knee tendinosis and a sprained right thumb. “I don’t think you can say how it went,” coach Stan Van Gundy said in bemused fashion. “I mean, they injected him and the stuff went in him. I guess that’s successful.”
