Bullock (leg) is inactive for Sunday's Game 4 against the Cavaliers, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Considered doubtful entering Sunday's contest, Bullock will miss a second straight game due to nerve inflammation in his left leg. He logged 10 and 12 minutes in the first two games of the series, but his absence didn't lead to more playing time for Stanley Johnson in Game 3, as four of the Pistons' five starters played 39+ minutes.
Bullock (leg) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Game 4 against the Cavaliers, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. Bullock is dealing with a nerve issue in his left leg and is expected to sit out a second consecutive game, after missing Friday's Game 3 against the Cavaliers as well. With Bullock likely out, Stanley Johnson should pick up the bulk of his minutes. Considering the Pistons are down 3-0 in the series and the Cavaliers have a chance to close it out Sunday, it very well could mean Bullock's season is over.
Bullock (leg) has been ruled out for Friday's Game 3 matchup against the Cavaliers, David Mayo of MLive.com reports. Bullock was a late scratch ahead of Friday's contest due to what was referred to as an inflamed nerve in his left leg. With Bullock sidelined, look for Stanley Johnson or Darrun Hilliard to pick up extra minutes off the bench.
Bullock scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with eight rebounds and four assists over 38 minutes in a 112-110 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday. In a preview of Detroit's upcoming first round playoff match-up, Bullock helped the Pistons dispatch of the Cavaliers in overtime. The 25-year-old Bullock had played over 20 minutes just eight times this season, but received a prominent role with both Stan Van Gundy and Tyronn Lue opting to rest their starters. Bullock is under contract with Detroit for two more seasons before becoming a restricted free agent.
Bullock contributed 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six assists, three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 27 minutes during the Pistons' 108-104 win versus the Magic on Wednesday.

Bullock averaged 22 minutes per appearance over a nine-game span between Feb. 24 and Mar. 9, but this was his first time since then that he played more than 11 minutes in a contest.
