    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Pitches in with double-double off bench Saturday

    Baynes pitched in with 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and two blocks over 30 minutes in Saturday's 104-101 loss to the Nuggets. The four-year pro posted his first double-double of the season on a night where he actually outperformed starter Andre Drummond. Baynes has begun receiving a higher allotment of minutes in January, including a season-high 30 on Saturday, and has been productive with the extended opportunity. He managed doubled-digit scoring for the fourth time during the month, and has averaged eight boards over the last three games. While Baynes' minutes continue to be be largely in the teens, he may begin to see additional playing time if teams persist in constantly fouling Drummond due to his ineptitude at the charity stripe.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Nears double-double in 25 minutes

    Baynes contributed eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 25 minutes during the Pistons' 123-114 win over the Rockets on Wednesday. Baynes actually played two more minutes than Andre Drummond on Wednesday--though Drummond was unsurprisingly much more effective. Baynes is averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and one block in 16 minutes per appearance over the last five games, but still makes for a poor option in most leagues.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Practices fully Sunday

    Baynes, who took a knee to his thigh in Saturday's win over the Warriors, was a full participant in Sunday's practice, Keith Langlois of reports. Baynes only played nine minutes Saturday, but made the most of his time on the court, accruing 12 points (6-6 FG), four rebounds, and two blocked shots. He'll likely be available for his usual backup role behind Andre Drummond in Monday's tilt with the Bulls.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Returns to action Tuesday

    Baynes (back) returned to action in Tuesday's 93-92 win over the Heat, finishing with one point (0-3 FG, 1-2 FT) and one rebound in 14 minutes. The back issue came at an inconvenient time for Baynes, who was forced to sit out Friday's game against the Bulls, which didn't conclude until after four overtime periods. Starting center Andre Drummond had plenty of time to recover from his 54-minute workload in Friday's game, while the extended break also allowed Baynes to heal up. Baynes will likely continue to see a 10-to-15 minute role off the bench for Detroit in their subsequent contests.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Plays 21 minutes Monday

    Baynes scored 11 points against the Rockets during a 116-105 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, two assists, and one block. Baynes is the backup center behind Andre Drummond, but seems to benefit from playing time that has come because of Drummond's struggles shooting from the free-throw line at key points in their games. He's not a major scoring threat and doesn't expect to get more than 15 minutes on a given night that Drummond is in the lineup.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: Scores six points Monday

    Baynes scored six points and grabbed nine rebounds in Detroit's 109-88 loss to the Bucks on Monday. Baynes played 19 minutes against the Bucks on Monday and has seen an increased role in the past few games. However, he's averaging 12.6 minutes per game and in the long run that is the role to be expected from him on a nightly basis. He's currently averaging 4.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game coming off the bench behind Andre Drummond.

    Pistons' Aron Baynes: No longer facing minutes restriction

    Baynes was cleared by his doctor to play in back-to-back games and will not face any minutes restriction when the Pistons begin their season Tuesday against the Hawks, Keith Langlois of reports. Baynes had previously been subjected to a 15-minute limit in games, but should be able to see extended action if the Pistons require that from him. However, with Andre Drummond ahead of him on the depth chart and set to dominate the playing time at the center spot, Baynes' minutes count doesn't project to be much more than 15 per game in any case.

    Pistons PF Aron Baynes returns from ankle injury on Wednesday

    Pistons point forward Aron Baynes (ankle) logged 13 minutes in Wednesday's exhibition win over the Bulls. He finished the evening with five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, and an assist. Baynes has been brought along slowly all throughout training camp after undergoing a cleanup procedure on his right ankle during the offseason, but it appears he's no longer facing any restrictions, given his participation in Wednesday's contest. After working as the top backup to Tim Duncan a season ago, Baynes will serve as the No. 2 behind the Pistons' own stud center, 22-year-old Andre Drummond.

    Pistons center Aron Baynes expected to play Wednesday

    Pistons center Aron Baynes (ankle) is expected to make his preseason debut Wednesday against the Bulls, Keith Langlois of reports. The Pistons were planning on having Baynes make his return to action Sunday against his former team in San Antonio, but the big man showed enough progress during Monday's full practice for the team to sign off on an early comeback. Baynes is in line to serve as the top backup to Andre Drummond at center this season.

    Baynes (ankle) went through a full practice Monday and is on track to make his Pistons debut within the week, Keith Langlois of reports. Baynes is yet to play this preseason due to an ankle injury, but coach Stan Van Gundy said he expects the big man to make his debut against the Spurs on Sunday. That means he'll sit out Tuesday's and Wednesday's games against the Pacers and Bulls, respectively.
