Luke Kennard (shoulder) will miss at least two more weeks.

The team's medical staff announced that they were "pleased with how his shoulder is responding," however, Kennard will go through another two weeks of rehab with intensification towards basketball activities. Glenn Robinson, Stanley Johnson, Langston Galloway and Reggie Bullock will continue to see extra minutes.
Nov 13 - 12:08 PM

Langston Galloway scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes off the bench.

Galloway has been trending up over the past five games with averages of 14.4 points, 3.2 triples, 4.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and just 0.8 turnovers per game on 49% shooting, and it'll be interesting to see just how long he can keep this up. He's been shooting 45.7% from beyond the arc during the hot streak, which isn't sustainable, but he is worth your attention in deep leagues while he's rolling.
Nov 11 - 6:52 PM

Andre Drummond posted a 23-point, 22-board double-double during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, adding three assists, three steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

As per usual, Drummond did an excellent job attacking the glass, racking up eight rebounds within the first quarter alone, which is essentially an entire game worth of boards from Myles Turner and Brook Lopez combined. He’s currently hauling in a career-high 16.6 rebounds per game and he has a good shot of leading the league in that category.
Nov 11 - 6:49 PM

Stanley Johnson couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 2-of-9 from the field on his way to four points, four rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes off the bench.

Johnson had played well in the previous two games with matchups against the Hawks and Magic, but Sunday's lame performance could be described as a regression to the mean. He's consistently been inconsistent throughout his career, and it looks like he's permanently lost his spot in the starting lineup. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:48 PM

Glenn Robinson III struggled in another start on Sunday, scoring five points on 2-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

Robinson had a tough time getting his shot to drop tonight, and he continues to alternate good games with bad ones. He’s really outplayed Stanley Johnson, so he should be able to retain his starting spot, but the inconsistency makes him an undesirable target in standard 12-team leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:47 PM

Reggie Bullock came through with a career-high 23 points during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, adding six 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

Bullock got off to a quick start in this one, drilling three triples within the first quarter of action, and he saw a ton of wide-open looks with the Charlotte doubling up Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond in the post. Bullock has been heating up over the past two games with averages of 18.0 points, 4.5 triples, 3.0 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.5 turnovers, so he’s worth a look in deep leagues for those seeking a boost in 3-pointers.
Nov 11 - 6:46 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting (5-of-6 from the line) Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

Jackson got off to a rough start in this one, connecting on just 3-of-9 of his shot attempts through the first half of action, but he was able to turn it around after halftime. He's good for some points, triples and assists, but the efficiency issues (36.4% shooting) and complete lack of defensive statistics make him a headache to own. He's really only worth rostering in deep leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:45 PM

Blake Griffin was ejected after picking up a Flagrant-2 foul on Sunday.

Griffin leaned into a screen on a driving Malik Monk, who was already airborne, so the Flagrant-2 was completely justified; although he shouldn't receive any further punishment. Griffin didn't play very well at all, finishing the game with just 10 points (4-of-16 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, one block and three turnovers in 30 minutes, making this his second lame game in a row. He'll look to bounce back on Wednesday vs. Toronto.
Nov 11 - 5:44 PM

The Pistons pushed back Luke Kennard's (shoulder) re-evaluation for his separated right shoulder until next week.

He is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, so now it sounds like he may not be back until after Thanksgiving. Langston Galloway has played well off the bench and Stanley Johnson has played well for two games in favorable matchups. Both are 16-team options with Johnson having more upside.
Nov 10 - 2:33 PM

Andre Drummond made 10-of-15 from the field for 23 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks during a blowout 124-109 win in Atlanta on Friday.

Excluding the matchup against real estate mogul Joel Embiid, Drummond has 23-plus points in the other four games over his last five. His usage is soaring this year as the Pistons run more DHOs and other ways to get him the ball down low. He's having a monster season and shows no signs of slowing down.
Nov 9 - 10:26 PM

Blake Griffin scored a season-low six points with nine rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

The Pistons lit it up in the first half with 74 points, but shockingly Griffin only accounted for one of those. He's scored 20-plus points in all but two games this season, but the quiet scoring game in this matchup is probably the surprise of the night. He'll get a tougher matchup against the Hornets next time out as Blake looks to rebound after a subpar 2017-18
Nov 9 - 10:22 PM

Reggie Bullock scored 13 points with three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It's been a lost season for Bullock, but nothing can get you going like the Hawks defense. We'll have to see Bullock do it again before even thinking about picking him up.
Nov 9 - 10:19 PM

Langston Galloway scored 16 points with one rebound, two assists, one block and five 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

He continues to see more run and he's taking minutes from Ish Smith. After Wednesday, coach Dwane Casey gave Galloway a lot of credit for how he defended, and Galloway has now strung together four good games. Still, he doesn't do enough besides score, so he's more of a deep-league flier or streaming play.
Nov 9 - 10:18 PM

Stanley Johnson scored a season-high 23 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It was a dream matchup for him because the Hawks can't defend wings, but credit to SJ for going off. Johnson did play well on Wednesday with 13 points and he is starting to come around, but his body of work suggests he'll cool off. If you do have dead weight, he could be worth a look because the Pistons do need help on the wing.
Nov 9 - 10:16 PM

Andre Drummond lit up the Magic in a 103-96 win on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with 19 rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He exploded in the first half with 19 and 12, and even hit a buzzer-beating trey at the end of the first. Drummond's defense has been improved lately and his activity could help him earn more shots on the offensive end. Drummond has improved his usage rate to 25.9 this season from 20.6 last year, and he'll continue to be the favorite to lead the NBA in boards.
