Pistons News

Avery Bradley    SG  Pistons

 

 

Bradley is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Raptors due to a groin injury, Jake Chapman of the Pistons Radio Network reports. Bradley missed seven games in mid-to-late December while dealing with a groin injury, but it's unclear if what's he's currently dealing with is an aggravation of that. Either way, it's giving him enough discomfort to prevent him from participating in Tuesday's practice. More word on his status should arrive following Wednesday's morning shootaround. If he's unable to take the floor, Stanley Johnson (hip) and Luke Kennard (thumb) -- both also questionable -- could see extra run. If any combination of the three players are ruled out, Reggie Bullock and Langston Galloway would likely see expanded roles.

Luke Kennard    G  Pistons

 

 

Luke Kennard (left thumb) did not practice on Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Toronto. This is the first time Kennard has popped up on the injury report due to a thumb issue. In fact, he has yet to miss a game due to injury this season and has played over 22 minutes in each of the Pistons last two contests. Avery Bradley (groin) and Stanley Johnson (hip) are also listed as questionable, which could leave the Pistons with little depth on Wednesday. We should have an update on the status of all three players after Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Luke Kennard    SG  Pistons

 

 

Kennard is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors due to a left thumb injury, Jake Chapman of the Pistons Radio Network reports. This is the first news of Kennard dealing with an injury, so it seems likely he suffered it during Monday's contest against the Hornets. He did not go through Tuesday's practice, so the injury is apparently giving him significant discomfort. More word on his status should arrive following Wednesday's morning shootaround.

Avery Bradley    G  Pistons

 

 

Avery Bradley (groin) did not practice on Tuesday and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors. This is concerning news, as Bradley was sidelined for seven straight games from mid-December through early January due to a right groin strain. Hopefully, this is more of a maintenance day off for Bradley, as opposed to a re-aggravation. We'll have to wait for a clear update from coach Stan Van Gundy before jumping to conclusions. Luke Kennard (thumb) and Stanley Johnson (hip) are also questionable for Wednesday, which means Detroit may be shorthanded at SG and on the wing.

Stanley Johnson    SF  Pistons

 

 

Johnson (hip) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors. Johnson has been sidelined for seven of the Pistons' past eight games with a right hip flexor strain, so he may need to prove he's healthy at Wednesday's morning shootaround in order to gain clearance to return. The wing's recent absences have opened up more run for starting small forward Reggie Bullock, who has exceeded 30 minutes in 10 of the Pistons' 14 games over the past month.

Stanley Johnson    F  Pistons

 

 

Stanley Johnson (strained right hip flexor) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Toronto. Johnson returned from a five-game absence last Wednesday but reaggravated his hip injury in that contest and was forced to sit out Monday's game vs. Charlotte. Reggie Bullock has played well in Johnson's absence, and the Pistons have plenty of depth on the wing, so it is unlikely Johnson will be able to earn enough playing time to make a fantasy impact even when he is fully healthy.

Reggie Bullock    SF  Pistons

 

 

Bullock scored 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3PT) in Monday's loss to the Hornets. The North Carolina product was a fringe-rotation player earlier in the season, but he's been a regular for coach Stan Van Gundy for the past month and has seized the opportunity. Bullock is averaging more than 31 minutes per game in the month of January, and he's scored at least 10 points in four of his last seven contests, while averaging 2.2 made threes per game over that span.

Andre Drummond    C  Pistons

 

 

Drummond had just three points (1-7 FG, 1-2 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in Monday's loss to the Hornets. While the rest of Detroit's starting five scored in double-figures, Drummond was neutralized all afternoon by Dwight Howard, who recorded four blocks to go with a 21-point, 17-board double-double. That said, Drummond's line was an anomaly considering he's been among the best centers in the league this season. His three points represent a season-low, and the output snapped a 12-game streak in which he'd scored in double-figures.

Anthony Tolliver    F  Pistons

 

 

Anthony Tolliver came off the bench to hit 6-of-7 shots and 5-of-6 3-pointers for 17 points, three assists and two blocks in an MLK Day loss to the Hornets. This was his best game in recent memory and he clearly had some luck working with his shot today. Tolliver would be worth a look if he was starting for the Pistons, but Stan Van Gundy has decided to roll with Reggie Bullock instead. Tolliver's currently not worth owning in most fantasy leagues, despite the nearly perfect shooting day.

Ish Smith    G  Pistons

 

 

Ish Smith hit 8-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, three rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes on Monday. This might have been Smith's best game of the season and if it wasn't, it was his first double-double. Smith was projected to play very well in the absence of Reggie Jackson, but he's been a little bit disappointing. Today's game may be just the thing he needs to get going, while Jackson still isn't close to returning from his ankle injury.
