Pistons' Marcus Morris: Suffers finger injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Morris is dealing with a finger injury and was a limited participant during Thursday's practice, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Morris had an X-ray performed on the finger, but it came back negative, indicating the injury isn't that serious. While Morris could be at risk of missing a few more days of practice, he doesn't look to be in danger of missing time during the regular season. Morris is poised to start at small forward this season, but could see a slight downgrade in playing time after averaging 35.7 minutes per game last season. Coach Stan Van Gundy has spoken of getting more rest for his starters in 2016-17, so if that plan holds to form, Stanley Johnson would be in line for expanded run.

Pistons' Andre Drummond: Lost 20 pounds over off-season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Drummond has lost 20 pounds in the offseason, James Herbert of CBS Sports reports.

Drummond said he's in the best shape of his life, and's ready to top last season, in which he averaged 16.2 points and NBA-best 14.8 rebounds. He recently re-signed with the Pistons to a five-year maximum deal of $127 million. It's hard to imagine Drummond's value increasing even more, but if he's improved as much as he says, it could increase his value.

Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Will be limited in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is nursing some knee tendinitis and will be limited during training camp, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Jackson won't be held out of camp drills entirely, with Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy clarifying that the point guard will simply just practice once per day. It's likely that the Pistons are just resting Jackson for maintenance purposes rather than expressing legitimate concern about his injury, so expect him to be ready to take on a full workload by the time the season arrives. Jackson should once again serve as the Pistons' top scorer in 2016-17 after averaging a team-leading 18.8 points per game last season.

Pistons' Darrun Hilliard: Will see practice time restricted in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (back) will be restricted to one practice per day during training camp, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

By all indications, Hilliard has fully recovered from the lower-back strain that ailed him for much of the summer, so the Pistons are just exercising some caution by limiting his practice time. He's still expected to suit up during preseason games and open the regular season as an available option off the bench. While coach Stan Van Gundy has mentioned a desire to get more minutes from his bench this season, it appears as though Stanley Johnson and Reggie Bullock would be first in line to see their respective roles expand.

Pistons' Lorenzo Brown: Has edge on third point guard duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown looks to be ahead of Ray McCallum in the battle for the Pistons' third point guard gig entering training camp, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

It appears that Brown's familiarity with coach Stan Van Gundy's offense is conferring him the early advantage in the job battle, but he's far from a safe bet to keep McCallum at bay. Both players are on non-guaranteed contracts, so the roster spot will likely come down to whichever point guard performs better during camp.
