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.”

Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Clippers and Lue’s representative in the contract talks, Andy Miller, completed negotiations on a deal Thursday afternoon, sources said.
The Clippers’ search landed on Lue based upon a confidence that his championship pedigree and playoff successes as a head coach in Cleveland, as well as his strong ability to communicate with players, will resonate within a franchise that underachieved in the 2019-2020 season.
