Hayes posted 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and six rebounds in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 119-100 loss to the Timberwolves. Hayes' efficiency remains suspect, but, on the plus side, he made two free throws for the first time since April 19. What he's been able to show off consistently, however, is his passing. Hayes has dished at least five assists in 13 straight games. The next step for him will be cutting down on turnovers. He's handed the ball over at least five times in five of his 24 appearances.
Hayes posted 21 points (9-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt), eight assists and seven rebounds in 38 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 108-96 loss to the Bulls. The impact of Hayes' line was dinged a bit in nine-category leagues by his seven turnovers, but the rookie otherwise delivered one of his more well-rounded performances of the season. Of course, Hayes' big night comes with the caveat that Detroit held out seven players due to rest or injuries, but the Pistons are still likely to be without a full roster for their final three games of the season. Hayes' path to seeing 30-plus minutes in any of those contests will largely hinge on the status of Cory Joseph (ankle), who sat out Sunday with a minor injury after starting at point guard in both of the previous two contests.
Hayes will start Sunday's game against Chicago, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. The Pistons' rotations have been impossible to predict of late, but the team will revert back to resting several key players Sunday on the second half of a back-to-back. As such, Hayes will re-enter the lineup at point guard after playing 21 minutes off the bench in Saturday's blowout loss to Philadelphia.
Hayes (illness) will be available for Saturday's contest against the 76ers. After sitting out Thursday's win over the Grizzlies due to an illness, Hayes should be back in action Saturday. Over his past seven games, he's averaged 5.3 points, 6.6 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 27.3 minutes.
Hayes (illness) is out Thursday against the Grizzlies, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports. Hayes will miss his first game since April 21. He's started each of the past four contests, but Cory Joseph (ankle) should get the nod Thursday.
