Doumbouya is averaging just 2.4 points per game across his last five appearances. Doumboya is firmly entrenched as the Pistons' backup power forward, but that usually means limited minutes since he comes off the bench to replace Blake Griffin. Doumboya has struggled to make an impact when taking the court, having scored in double digits just once all season long while shooting poorly. He's made just 36.4 percent of his shots and 20 percent of his treys over his last five contests.
Doumbouya had 13 points (4-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 23 minutes during Monday's 125-115 loss to the Bucks. Doumbouya struggled while playing over his rookie season average of 19.8 minutes. It did not stop him from taking shots Monday, as the 13 he took equaled that amount through four previous matchups. Doumbouya's performance has now lowered his shot percentage to 33.3 percent over seven games.
Doumbouya (foot) is expected to play Tuesday against Golden State. The second-year forward is dealing with a sore right foot, but he was able to play through the ailment in Monday's loss to the Hawks. However, Doumbouya played just 10 minutes on a night when the Pistons were without Blake Griffin (rest).
Doumbouya (foot) is active for Monday's game against Atlanta, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. This has turned into a weird situation to say the least, as the Pistons officially marked the forward out for Monday's game prior to tipoff. However, it's reported that Doumbouya will indeed be active for Monday's matchup.
Doumbouya (foot) won't play in Monday's game against Atlanta. Doumbouya has been nursing right foot soreness over the past few days but he was able to play in Saturday's loss to Cleveland. With the forward out Monday, expect Jerami Grant and Saddiq Bey to see increased run.
