Pistons' Alec Burks: Remains out Monday
Burks (foot) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Milwaukee.
Burks will miss a 10th straight game Monday. It's unclear if he'll suit up again this season, but his next chance to play will arrive Wednesday in Oklahoma City.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bojan Bogdanovic: Won't play Monday
Bogdanovic (Achilles) is out for Monday's game against the Bucks.
Bogdanovic hasn't played since March 1, but the Pistons continue to update his status on a game-by-game basis. The veteran's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday in Oklahoma City, but there's been zero indication that Bogdanovic is nearing a return to game action.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable Monday
Joseph (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bucks.
Joseph missed Friday's game with an illness, but it looks like he could return by Monday. If he is able to get back out there, Jaden Ivey would be less likely to log 40-plus minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Questionable Monday
McGruder (foot) is questionable for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.
The foot injury forced McGruder to the sidelines Friday, which resulted in Isaiah Livers getting the start and there were more minutes available for Eugene Omoruyi and R.J. Hampton. It'll be more of the same if he's out again Monday.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jalen Duren: Modest production Friday
Duren chipped in nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 25 minutes during Friday's 118-97 loss to the Raptors.
Duren returned after missing the previous game due to a neck concern, logging 25 minutes off the bench. The team continues to play both Duren and James Wiseman at the center position. Even in 25 minutes per night, Duren typically does enough to be rostered in standard leagues.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Logs 30 minutes in return
Livers (hip) started and provided 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes during Friday's 118-97 loss to the Raptors.
Livers was back on the floor after a four-game absence, sliding straight back into the top unit. With the non-contending Pistons showing no inclination to bring back Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) and Alec Burks (foot) and with another veteran wing in Rodney McGruder (foot) also sitting out Friday, Livers could be primed for a big-minute role down the stretch. He doesn't have the most alluring fantasy skill set, but a player with a bankable 30-minute starting role isn't easy to find on the waiver wire at this stage of the season.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jaden Ivey: Productive despite blowout
Ivey racked up 20 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 41 minutes during Friday's 118-97 loss to the Raptors.
Ivey had one of his better all-around performances in recent memory, falling two assists short of a double-double while shooting efficiently from both the field and the charity stripe. While the Pistons are clearly going all-in on their quest for the number one pick, Ivey appears as though he will maintain a substantial role ROS, barring injury. He is someone who should be rostered in most formats, although his limited overall upside does mean he is better suited to fantasy managers seeking points and assists.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Enters starting lineup
Livers (hip) will start against the Raptors on Friday.
Rodney McGruder (foot) has been on fire for the Pistons, but he's sitting out this contest. Livers will likely slot right into McGruder's spot in the rotation, and he did play very well at the beginning of March before injuring his hip.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Available Friday
Livers (hip) is available for Friday's game against Toronto.
Livers was probable for Friday's matchup, so his status doesn't come as a significant surprise. However, he's missed the past four games, so it's possible his playing time is monitored against the Raptors. Over his last six appearances, the 24-year-old has averaged 11.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 31.7 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Cory Joseph: Late addition to injury report
Joseph is out for Friday's game versus the Raptors due to a non-COVID illness.
Joseph will miss his first game Friday since Feb. 6. With Alec Burks (foot) and Rodney McGruder (foot) also out, Jaden Ivey, Killian Hayes and R.J. Hampton will likely receive heavy workloads in the backcourt. Joseph's next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Won't play Friday
McGruder is out for Friday's game versus the Raptors due to a left foot sprain.
McGruder will miss Friday's game after starting in his previous eight appearances. R.J. Hampton and Isaiah Livers (hip) are candidates to see extended minutes in his absence. McGruder's next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Alec Burks: Out yet again Friday
Burks (foot) is out for Friday's game against the Raptors.
Burks will sit out a ninth straight game due to left foot soreness, and he's running out of chances to return. The Pistons may shut him down for the remainder of the season, though they haven't done that yet with Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles), who is in a similar situation.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bojan Bogdanovic: Still out Friday
Bogdanovic (Achilles) is out Friday against the Raptors.
The Pistons still refuse to rule Bogdanovic out for the season, so his availability will continue to be addressed game by game. That said, fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to see the floor again.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Probable Friday
Livers (hip) is probable for Friday's game against the Raptors.
Livers has missed the last four games due to a sore right hip, but he'll likely be able to return to the court Friday. He's averaged 11.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 31.7 minutes per game over six appearances in March, but it's possible his playing time is monitored if he's cleared to suit up against Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jalen Duren: Available Friday
Duren (neck) is available for Friday's game against the Raptors.
The rookie will return following a one-game absence after exiting Sunday's loss to the Heat early. In his five prior appearances leading up to Sunday, Duren averaged 12.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 blocks in 22.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Inks rest-of-season deal
Omoruyi signed a rest-of-season contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.
The second-year pro out of Oregon is coming off two 10-day deals with the Pistons, and he's impressed the organization enough to stick around for the remainder of the campaign. Over his past eight appearances, Omoruyi has averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 24.8 minutes. As the Pistons let the season slip away, he should continue seeing plenty of action.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
