  • Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Won't play Thursday

    Diallo will not play Thursday against Memphis due to personal reasons.

    The nature of Diallo's absence is unclear, but he's one of eight Pistons players who have already been ruled out of Thursday's contest. Diallo was coming off of perhaps the best game of his NBA career Tuesday against Charlotte, when he posted 35 points, seven rebounds and one block in 40 minutes of action. With Josh Jackson (tooth), Cory Joseph (ankle), Wayne Ellington (calf) and Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) among the teammates sidelined, Detroit will have to dig deep to find backcourt depth Thursday.

  • Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Erupts for 35 points

    Diallo scored 35 points (14-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-6 FT) to go along with seven rebounds and one block across 40 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

    The Pistons were without a number of the regular members of their rotation, which in part opened big minutes for Diallo. He responded with a career-high 35 points while shooting very well from the field. That was the majority of his production, though with the increase in playing time he's also averaged 7.6 rebounds and 0.6 blocks across his last five games.

  • Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Goes through shootaround

    Diallo (knee) went through shootaround in advance of Tuesday's game against Charlotte, Lauren Williams of MLive.com reports.

    Both Diallo and Frank Jackson (quad) remain game-time calls, but the fact that they each participated in shootaround has to be viewed as an encouraging sign. With most of Detroit's regular starters taking yet another night off, Diallo could be set for his second straight start at shooting guard, assuming he's cleared to play.

  • Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Questionable with sore knee

    Diallo (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Diallo was able to play through the injury Monday night against Orlando, as he made his first start since joining the Pistons and finished with 16 points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes. If he's cleared to play Tuesday, Diallo will likely be in line for another start with Josh Jackson (tooth) among the seven Pistons regulars who have already been ruled out.
