    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Scrimmaging in G League

    Cade Cunningham (ankle), who is out for the Detroit Pistons' road trip, will scrimmage with the G League's Motor City Cruise, Johnny Kane of Bally Sports reports.Detroit's medical staff wants to get Cunningham as close to 100 percent as possible before making his debut. Scrimmaging with the G League will help Cunningham test his sprained right ankle and get his wind back. His first chance to take the court for the Pistons will be Oct. 30 against the Magic when the team returns from the road trip.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Expected to miss road trip

    General manager Troy Weaver said Wednesday that Cade Cunningham (ankle) likely won't make his debut until after the Detroit Pistons' upcoming three-game road trip that concludes Oct. 28 in Philadelphia, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. "He's pretty much day-to-day, but we need to ramp him up and get some conditioning going and get him acclimated to going full speed in 5-on-5," Weaver said. "Hopefully, we'll get him back sooner than later, but I would anticipate hopefully seeing him when we get back off the road."The No. 1 overall pick will miss Wednesday's season opener against the Bulls, and Weaver implied that Cunningham will likely make his debut shortly after the team returns from a three-game road trip that begins Saturday at Chicago and concludes just over a week later. With that in mind, Cunningham could return to action as early as Oct. 30, when the Pistons play host to theMagic.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Ruled out for opener

    Cade Cunningham (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's season opener against the Bulls.As of Monday, coach Dwane Casey left the door open for Cunningham to potentially make his NBA debut Wednesday, but the Detroit Pistons will ultimately exercise caution and hold the No. 1 overall pick out of action as he battles the sprained ankle that sidelined him for the entire preseason. The rookie should be considered day-to-day with the hope that he's able to take the floor for Saturday's rematch against the Bulls in Chicago. Considering Cunningham hasn't taken the floor for a "real" game since Summer League, he may have to shake off some rust whenever he's cleared to debut.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Back at practice

    Cade Cunningham (ankle) resumed practicing Monday, but head coach Dwane Casey wouldn't commit to the rookie playing in Wednesday's season opener against the Bulls, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. "When he's healthy, he'll be ready to go," Casey said of the rookie. "The medical people are being cautious, and rightfully so."Cunningham missed the entire preseason with a right ankle sprain, robbing both the Detroit Pistons and potential fantasy investors of an early glimpse of how he might fit within the Detroit lineup. Even so, Cunningham appears on track to avoid a lengthy absence to begin his pro career, even if his conditioning isn't quite where it needs to be ahead of Wednesday's opener. If Cunningham is sidelined against Chicago, more minutes could be up for grabs among Josh Jackson, Frank Jackson, Hamidou Diallo and Cory Joseph.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Uncertain for opener

    Cade Cunningham (ankle) didn't practice Sunday, but Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said the rookie is still working to play in Wednesday's season opener versus the Bulls, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. "He's on course," Casey said of Cunningham. "One thing we're not going to do is rush him back."Cunningham didn't play during the preseason after twisting his ankle in an Oct. 1 practice, but Detroit is apparently not ready to rule the No. 1 overall pick out from making his NBA debut Wednesday. That being said, Cunningham will almost certainly need to practice in some fashion Monday and/or Tuesday to have a realistic shot at playing against the Bulls, and even in that scenario, he could be subject to a minutes restriction.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: No firm return timetable

    Coach Dwane Casey said Tuesday that the Detroit Pistons will take their time with Cade Cunningham (ankle), Omari Sankof of the Detroit Free Press reports. "We're not going to rush Cade back," Casey said. "When he comes back, it doesn't mean we're going to throw him out there and see what happens. He's too valuable for us."The implication is that Cunningham is still not ready to return to full-contact work, so it's safe to rule him out of Wednesday's preseason game against the Knicks. That leaves just one more opportunity (Friday vs. PHI) for the No. 1 overall pick to gain some preseason experience, but at this point Cunningham playing in the exhibition finale seems unlikely. With the regular season just a week away, it's fair to question whether Cunningham could miss a game or two to begin his rookie season.

    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Doubtful for preseason opener

    Coach Dwane Casey said that Cade Cunningham will likely not play in Wednesday's preseason opener due to a swollen ankle, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.Casey said Cunningham will likely need two or three practices before he's ready to play, so he could miss Monday's contest against the Grizzlies as well. The No. 1 overall pick twisted his ankle during practice Friday, but the injury isn't considered to be serious. Saben Lee is expected to have a larger role during the preseason opener with Cunningham sidelined.
