Stan Van Gundy seems to have found one when it comes to the timetable for Jackson’s absence. “Four weeks, six weeks, eight weeks, whatever it is — three of those weeks are right now in the preseason,” Van Gundy said. “That’s – in the year – 10 games. If this happened in November, that’s 10 more regular season games. So there are … it’s not a great situation, but it’s not the worst, either.” Should Jackson miss as many as eight weeks, a return to the court would happen no later than by the end of November. The regular season starts Oct. 26, in Toronto.
Jackson sat out Tuesday’s practice and has been limited to one practice per day during training camp while he deals with a flareup of tendinitis in his left knee. The Pistons and Jackson have said he’s been managing it for years, going back to his days in Oklahoma City. “He’s had this since he came back in September,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said on Tuesday. “We’ve got further evaluation going on with what’s going to happen to him. So yeah, we’ll have to see how long and everything else.”
