It would have been a difficult blow for the Pistons if Jackson was forced to miss significant time, especially since they signed him to a five-year extension this past offseason with the idea of making him the starting point guard for the foreseeable future.

From an offensive perspective, he posted the best stretch of his career in 2014-15 with the Pistons. No longer behind Russell Westbrook on the Oklahoma City Thunder’s depth chart, Jackson averaged 17.6 points and 9.2 assists per night in 27 games and did enough to earn the necessary long-term trust to merit the extension.

He has once again been impressive this season with 19.1 points and 6.2 assists a night prior to the injury.

While the Pistons have the pieces to survive a setback to Jackson, should he suffer one down the road, he is the starting point guard for a reason.
