AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson is out for at least six to eight weeks with a sprained right ankle.

Jackson was injured after making a jump pass and landing awkwardly Tuesday night in a win over the Indiana Packers.

He is averaging 14.6 points, ranking third on the team, and leads the Pistons with 5.5 assists per game. Jackson was limited to 52 games last season, largely due to a knee injury.

The Pistons play Thursday night at Orlando and will likely start Ish Smith in place of Jackson.
