AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson is expected to miss about six to eight weeks with knee and thumb problems.
   The Pistons say Jackson had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections Monday to treat left knee tendinosis and a sprained right thumb.
   Detroit opens the regular season Oct. 26 at Toronto, so Jackson's timetable could keep him out for at least the first month. He did not play in the team's preseason opener at Brooklyn on Thursday.
   The Pistons signed guard Ish Smith in the offseason, so his role will likely increase with Jackson out.
