Shooting guard Adonis Thomas was waived by the Detroit Pistons on Friday.
Thomas was an All-Star in the D-League last year, but has not played in the NBA since the end of the 2013-14 season. He suffered a calf muscle injury during his preseason run, which sidelined him for several games and didn't help his chances of making the roster.
The Detroit Pistons have declared that shooting guard Adonis Thomas is dealing with an injury to his calf muscle, not his Achilles' tendon, as was previously suggested.
Thomas was able to return to the court Tuesday against the Pacers, playing 10 minutes in what was his preseason debut, but it sounds like he might have suffered a setback. He can ill afford to miss any further time during training camp as he is no lock to win a roster spot.
Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Monday that Adonis Thomas (Achilles) has resuming practicing and is available to return to preseason action, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
Van Gundy relayed that he plans on giving Thomas significant minutes in one of the Pistons' two back-to-back exhibition games on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thomas, who is competing with a number of players for the final spot on the Pistons' roster, has yet to make his preseason debut.
Detroit Pistons forward Adonis Thomas was diagnosed Wednesday with a slight tear in his Achilles, Pistons.com reports.
Thomas, who sat out Tuesday's preseason loss to the Indiana Pacers with the injury, will rest for the next few the days with the hope that it alleviates the pain. He could return to game action at some point next week.
Detroit Pistons forward Adonis Thomas missed Tuesday's preseason opener against the Indiana Pacers with an Achilles injury, Rob Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Thomas was scheduled to receive an MRI on the injury Monday, but the severity of the ailment isn't yet known. The forward is only with the Pistons on a camp invite and has little margin for error if he hopes to come away with an opening-night roster spot.
