Reggie Jackson will play tonight against the Sacramento Kings, reports Pistons.com writer Keith Langlois.

The Pistons point guard suffered a thigh contusion late in Monday's loss against the Golden State Warriors. After taking a knee to the thigh, Jackson was noticeably limping up and down the court, but did manage to stay in the game long enough to cut a sizeable Golden State lead to four points after three quarters.

When Jackson took a seat to rest up the lead ballooned back to 14 points in five minutes. Jackson attempted to restore order but was hampered and the Pistons eventually lost 109-95.

Jackson actually struggled through most of the game courtesy of a smart and stifling Warriors defense that denied both penetration and easy passing lanes. The dynamic Pistons point guard ended the night with 20 points, five assists and six turnovers on 7-of-19 shooting.

For the season, Jackson is averaging 22.7 points, 5.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds. He is one half of Detroit's dynamic high pick-and-roll attack, and together with Andre Drummond has powered the Pistons to a surprise 5-2 start to the year.
