Report: Reggie Jackson Cleared for Light Running and Shooting, Still No Timetable for Return



[Reggie] Jackson has been cleared to begin “light running, shooting and continued ankle-strengthening exercises,” the Pistons announced Wednesday as they regrouped coming out of the All-Star break for the season’s final 25 games.

“We’d like to have him back as soon as possible, but it’s not like we’re sitting and waiting,” Stan Van Gundy said. “We’re trying to win every game we play. Our guys are confident that they’ve got enough right here to win and we’re trying to do that.”

Jackson is running at full body weight on a treadmill now, but that’s a long way from cutting at full speed or the stop-and-go movement required on every defensive possession. How long will it take to go from running to that?

Nobody knows.

“He’s certainly not cutting, so he’s just starting the process here at eight weeks to get back,” Van Gundy said. “I don’t know when it’ll be. When he’s ready, he’s ready.”
