Pistons' Reggie Jackson, Ersan Ilyasova (illness) sit vs. Nuggets

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit's Reggie Jackson and Ersan Ilyasova sat out Wednesday night's 103-92 loss to Denver, leaving the Pistons without three starters in their final game before the All-Star break.

The team said before the game that Jackson and Ilyasova had both been ill. The Pistons were also without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who has been recovering from a core muscle strain.

Forward Anthony Tolliver started Wednesday's game in place of Ilyasova, while Brandon Jennings and Stanley Johnson replaced the usual starting backcourt of Jackson and Caldwell-Pope.
