Kennard (knee) will remain out for at least another week, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports. Kennard has been able to go through limited parts of practice of late, but he's still not overly close to making his return from chronic knee soreness. On Tuesday, coach Dwane Casey said the team has pushed Kennard's timetable back, and he won't be available to make his return for another week "at the earliest." Kennard hasn't played since Dec. 21.
Kennard (knees) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Suns. Kennard was able to take some light contact in practice coming out of the All-Star break, but the Pistons have thus far been unwilling to issue a target date for the third-year wing's return to game action. Until reports surface indicating that Kennard has resumed taking part in full-contact, full-court practices, he shouldn't be viewed as day-to-day.
Kennard (knees) remains "a ways away" from a return but has progressed to taking some contact in practice, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. Kennard has been dealing with sore knees, keeping him out since Dec. 23. The organization should be in no rush to get him back on the court, as the team has transitioned into a full rebuild, trading away Andre Drummond and buying out Reggie Jackson.
Kennard (knees) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic. Kennard's name cropped up in trade rumors leading up to last week's deadline, but he ultimately stayed put. Now that he's locked in with the Pistons for at least the rest of the season, Kennard can turn his focus solely to moving past the bilateral knee soreness and patellar tendinitis that has sidelined him since late December. Detroit has thus far provided limited updates on Kennard's recovery, so he'll need to ramp up his activity over the next several days if he hopes to be available Dec. 20 for the team's first game out of the All-Star break.
Kennard (knee) may not return until after the All-Star break, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. Kennard is currently dealing with bilateral knee soreness and has yet to take part in any meaningful basketball-related activity since Dec. 21 against Chicago. Coach Dwayne Casey hinted Monday that the former Duke standout could be out until at least the All-Star break. If that's indeed the case, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, who's averaging 10.7 points over 27.2 minutes during the past 11 games, could continue to garner most of the minutes at the shooting-guard position for the Pistons moving forward.
