Brown totaled 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three steals, two assists, one rebound, and one block in 21 minutes during Thursday's 112-102 loss to Sacramento. Brown dropped a career-high 15 points Thursday, chipping in with contributions across the board. Brown is typically better in reality as opposed to fantasy but this was a solid outing. Prior to Thursday, he had scored in double-digits in just four games and owners would need to see much more of this before considering him for standard formats.
Brown contributed 12 points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven assists, and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Saturday's 110-105 loss to the Jazz. Brown drew a second straight start at shooting guard, finishing with career highs in scoring, assists, minutes, and made free throws while sophomore Luke Kennard came off the bench and played just 13 minutes. Brown's ability to defend, attack the basket and make plays for others is helping him earn the trust of coach Dwane Casey, but the rookie did commit four turnovers as well.
Brown started at shooting guard and logged eight points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 22 minutes Wednesday in the Pistons' 106-95 win over the Wizards. It was an acceptable, if uninspiring showing for Brown, who replaced Luke Kennard as a starter on the wing alongside Reggie Bullock. Though his stock will see a slight boost so long as he remains on the top unit, Brown's overall fantasy value will probably be fairly muted while he regularly shares the floor with higher-usage players like Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson.
Brown will start over Luke Kennard during Wednesday's game against the Wizards, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. The Pistons have lost nine of the past 11 games, and it seems coach Dwane Casey wants to switch things up in the starting five. In seven previous starts this season, Brown has averaged 4.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 21.4 minutes.
Brown will come off the bench Saturday against the Celtics, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. With Reggie Bullock (ankle) returning to the starting five, Brown will resume his usual bench role. When coming off the pine, he's averaged 4.5 points and 2.4 rebounds across 17.0 minutes.
