Diallo (finger) will be out the remainder of the season, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. A sprained finger has kept Diallo out since March 11, and he won't recover before the end of the year. He'll conclude his first full season in Detroit with averages of 11.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and a career-high 1.2 steals in 21.9 minutes.
Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said Tuesday that he hopes Diallo (finger) will return before the season ends, but he remains without a return timetable, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports. Diallo has missed six straight games, and based on Casey's comments, he'll likely be sidelined for at least another week. Casey added that he doesn't want to shut down the talented guard for the remainder of the campaign because he feels like the final three weeks of the regular season will offer beneficial development time for Detroit's young squad.
Diallo (finger) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Trail Blazers. Diallo will miss a sixth straight game. In his absence, Cory Joseph and Rodney McGruder should continue to see increased run.
Diallo (finger) is out Saturday against the Cavaliers. Diallo will be unavailable for a fifth consecutive game. Cory Joseph and Rodney McGruder should continue to see increased run.
Diallo (finger) is out Thursday against the Magic. Diallo will miss a fourth straight game. Detroit could be quite shorthanded in the backcourt, as Cade Cunningham (illness) and Rodney McGruder (hamstring) are questionable.
