  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Hits for 21 in loss

    Hayes provided 21 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and six assists over 34 minutes during Tuesday's 129-107 loss to the Hawks.

    It's the second time in the last four games that Hayes has scored at least 20 points, a mark he previously hadn't reached since Jan. 8. Tuesday was the third-year point guard's sixth straight start, a stretch in which he's averaging 15.2 points, 9.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.7 steals while shooting 42.4 percent from the floor. The latter number doesn't seem impressive, but it's a big improvement on his career 37.4 percent mark. If Hayes can continue to be at least a mediocre shooter rather than an abysmal one, he becomes a much more intriguing fantasy option.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Top distributor in loss

    Hayes chipped in 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Heat.

    Hayes once again inflicted damage in the field-goal percentage category, but he brought value with his contributions in assists and steals, and his ample production of late in those two areas should be enough for him to be worthy of a spot in a 12-team category league. While starting in each of the past five games, Hayes has averaged 9.8 assists and 2.0 steals.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Leads offense in 20-point outing

    Hayes racked up 20 points (10-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven assists, three rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 117-97 loss to the Wizards.

    Hayes led the short-handed Pistons in scoring, assists and steals Tuesday while overcoming his ongoing shooting woes for at least one night. While Detroit is missing several guards due to injury, Hayes should have a fairly clear path to a regular 30-plus-minute role. He has the ability to put up intriguing numbers in the assists and steals columns if fantasy managers willing to stomach some poor efficiency.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Double-double against Indiana

    Hayes ended with 10 points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, two steals and one rebound in 29 minutes during Monday's 117-97 win over the Pacers.

    The Pistons won for the first time in over a month, and Hayes' second straight double-double was a big part of the successful formula. The third-year point guard has started 11 of Detroit's last 14 games, but his production has been erratic -- he's averaging just 8.0 points, 7.3 assists, 2.9 boards and 1.6 steals while shooting a woeful 30 percent from the floor and 14 percent (6-for-43) from three-point range. Until Hayes' shot improves, his fantasy ceiling will be capped, but he remains much more palatable in points leagues or in category leagues in which managers are punting field-goal percentage.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Busy in loss

    Hayes finished with 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block across 37 minutes during Saturday's 121-115 loss to the Pacers.

    Hayes' usage was through the roof with backcourt mate Jaden Ivey (COVID-19 protocols) inactive for the contest and with wing Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) continuing to sit out. Bogdanovic looks like a potential shutdown candidate for the 15-53 Pistons, but Ivey could be ready to return to the mix as soon as Monday's rematch with the Pistons. Regardless, Hayes looks primed to continue seeing steady minutes the rest of the way, making him an appealing option for fantasy managers in need of help in the assists and steals categories. However, Hayes will likely actively harm any managers trying to make up ground in the field-goal percentage category; he's converting at a lowly 36.8 percent on 10.2 attempts per game this season, and his volume of shots may only increase down the stretch while the Pistons are without other key contributors.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting against Pacers

    Hayes is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

    Hayes moves back to the starting unit with Jaden Ivey (illness) sidelined, and this means he will return to what has been a regular role for him this season. After all, Hayes has started in 41 of his 61 appearances so far. He's averaging 11.0 points and 6.7 assists per game as a starter.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Coming off bench Thursday

    Hayes isn't starting Thursday's game against the Hornets, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hayes has been cleared to return from a two-game absence due to a left hand contusion but will come off the bench Thursday while Rodney McGruder remains in the starting lineup. Hayes has come off the bench in 19 appearances this season and has averaged 6.1 points and 4.1 assists in 21.1 minutes per game during those outings.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Officially available Thursday

    Hayes (hand) is available for Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Hayes missed the last two games with a left hand contusion but was probable ahead of Thursday's matchup, so his status isn't particularly surprising. He'll likely return to the starting lineup while Rodney McGruder comes off the bench. Over Hayes' last nine appearances, he's averaged 7.6 points and 6.6 assists in 28.9 minutes per game.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Likely to play Thursday

    Hayes (hand) is probable for Thursday's game versus Charlotte.

    Hayes is expected to play Thursday after missing the previous two games with a left hand contusion. The 21-year-old guard should reclaim his starting spot from Rodney McGruder.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out again Tuesday

    Hayes (hand) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Hayes will miss both halves of the Pistons' current back-to-back set due to a left hand contusion. Alec Burks (foot) replaced Hayes in the starting lineup Monday, but the veteran has been ruled out for Tuesday, as well, leaving Cory Joseph as a likely candidate for increased run at point guard.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out Monday

    Hayes (hand) will not play Monday against the Trail Blazers, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    With Hayes unavailable for Monday's game, expect more minutes for Cory Joseph and Alec Burks, with Burks offering a bit more upside. R.J. Hampton might also be able to get more involved in the rotation sans Hayes. For now, Hayes should be considered questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Questionable Monday

    Hayes is questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers due to a left hand contusion.

    Hayes exited Saturday's game against the Cavaliers due to his left hand injury, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available Monday after being diagnosed with a contusion. Cory Joseph, Jaden Ivey and R.J. Hampton will likely see increased run if Hayes is out.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Done for Saturday

    Hayes (hand) won't return to Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Johnny Kane of Bally Sports Detroit reports.

    As expected, Hayes will sit out the remainder of the contest after exiting late in the third quarter with a left hand injury. Hayes could be sent in for further tests on his hand, after which the Pistons will determine his status heading into a four-game week that begins Monday versus the Trail Blazers. Before exiting, Hayes produced five points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Exits game with hand injury

    Hayes has departed Saturday's game against the Cavaliers due to a hand injury, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hayes left the game in the first half, returned in the second half, played less than two minutes and departed again, so he's not likely to give it a go a third time around. This means the Pistons are down another key player, and Cory Joseph is expected to see an uptick in minutes while Hayes is out.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Double-double in Monday's loss

    Hayes posted 12 points (4-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists, four rebounds, four steals and two blocks across 35 minutes during Monday's 117-106 loss to the Hornets.

    It's his first double-double since Dec. 26 and just his third of the season. Hayes has started seven straight games for Detroit, but the added responsibility hasn't helped improve his offensive game any, and over that stretch he's averaging 7.4 points, 6.7 assists, 2.9 boards and 1.4 steals while shooting a paltry 25.7 percent from the floor. Unless his shot improves significantly, the 21-year-old will only be of real interest in deep fantasy formats.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Shooting struggles continue

    Hayes totaled 10 points (3-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, nine assists and two steals across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 127-109 loss to the Celtics.

    Hayes got off to a decent start with six first-half points on 2-of-5 shooting to go along with five assists and two steals. Unfortunately, the point guard failed to find his groove as the game went on, going just 1-of-6 for another four points in the second half, including 0-of-3 from beyond the arc. Hayes is now averaging just 6.7 points per game in February and is shooting a dreadful 15.6 percent from the floor over his last three contests. He did, however, dish out a game-high nine assists on the night and has posted at least five dimes in five straight.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Balanced outing in starting lineup

    Hayes produced nine points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, six assists and two steals over 29 minutes during Wednesday's 113-85 loss to Cleveland.

    Hayes entered the starting lineup Wednesday and could stick there after leading the team in assists and steals while finishing one point short of surpassing the double-digit scoring mark. Hayes has tallied at least five points, five assists and two steals in two straight contests.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Rejoins starting lineup

    Hayes will start Wednesday's game versus the Cavaliers, Spencer Davies of reports.

    With Hayes coming off an impressive effort against the Celtics and Alec Burks struggling mightily with his shot, the writing was seemingly on the wall that a lineup change could be forthcoming, especially when Hayes logged 13 more minutes than Burks on Monday. That will indeed be the case Wednesday, so look for Hayes' heightened role to extend, and he could maintain a regular starting spot if he performs well.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Just misses double-double Monday

    Hayes accumulated 17 points (7-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt), nine assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes off the bench during Monday's 111-99 loss to the Celtics.

    After going four straight games without scoring more than eight points, the third-year guard shook off his mini-slump. Hayes is still adjusting to his return to the second unit, and since being replaced in the starting five by veteran Alec Burks on Jan. 26, the 21-year-old is averaging 9.5 points, 5.7 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.5 threes in 24.8 minutes a game.
