  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Opts into player option for 2022-23

    Joseph exercised his $5.1 million player option for the 2022-23 season, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Joseph made 65 appearances last year -- his first full campaign with Detroit -- and averaged 8.0 points, 3.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game while shooting a career-high 41.4 percent from three. The veteran guard will likely garner a similar role for the Pistons next season, though Killian Hayes -- who averaged 11.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.9 steals during the final 11 games of the 2021-22 season -- could reclaim the starting backcourt spot next to Cade Cunningham after finishing last year strong.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Out for finale

    Joseph (back) is out Sunday against the 76ers.

    The veteran will miss the final five games of the year with a strained back. The point guard has been putting up nearly identical numbers for half a decade, and he'll end the 2021-22 campaign with averages of 8.0 points, 3.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 24.6 minutes.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Ruled out Friday

    Joseph (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Milwaukee.

    Joseph will be unavailable for a fourth consecutive game due to a back strain. Killian Hayes, Carsen Edwards and Frank Jackson should see additional run once again.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable vs. Bucks

    Joseph (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    The veteran point guard has missed the past three games due to a strained back. Assuming he sits out, Killian Hayes should continue seeing the bulk of minutes at point guard, and Carsen Edwards and Frank Jackson should see extra run as well.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Remains out

    Joseph (back) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against Dallas.

    Joseph will miss a third straight game due to a strained back. As a veteran on a tanking team, it wouldn't be surprising if he misses all three of Detroit's remaining contests.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Out Sunday

    Joseph (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Joseph will be sidelined for a second straight game due to back issues. With Cade Cunningham (hip) also out, Killian Hayes and Frank Jackson are expected to enter the starting lineup, while recently signed Carsen Edwards may garner a sizable role off the bench.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Joseph (back) is doubtful Sunday against the Pacers.

    A strained left lumbar spine is expected to keep the veteran shelved for a second straight contest. That should continue to open up more time for Killian Hayes, Frank Jackson and potentially Saben Lee.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Won't play Friday

    Joseph (back) has been ruled out for Friday's contest against the Thunder.

    Joesph played through the back strain during the first half of the Pistons' back-to-back, but he'll be sidelined for the second half. In his absence, Killian Hayes figures to draw the start at point guard while Frank Jackson and Rodney McGruder may garner increased roles off the bench.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Cleared to play

    Joseph (back) will be available for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

    Joseph was initially listed as questionable due to a back strain, but he'll push through it and will likely start at his usual spot alongside Cade Cunningham.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable with back strain

    Joseph is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers due to a strained back.

    The questionable tag indicates that the injury isn't overly serious, but it's possible the bottom-feeding Pistons could end up holding out Joseph on the front end of a back-to-back. The veteran guard has started each of his last 32 appearances dating back to mid-January.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Starting Wednesday

    Joseph (rest) will start Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    After getting Monday's game against the Trail Blazers off for rest, Joseph will be back in the starting five, pushing Killian Hayes to the bench. Over his past five appearances, Joseph has averaged 9.0 points, 4.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 29.2 minutes.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Won't play Monday

    Joseph (rest) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against Portland.

    As expected, Joseph will get the night off after playing at least 30 minutes in four of the last five contests. In his absence, Killian Hayes (head) and Saben Lee figure to see increased roles against the Trail Blazers.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable Monday

    Joseph is questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers due to rest purposes.

    Joseph has played at least 30 minutes in four of the last five matchups, and he's averaged 9.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 29.2 minutes per game during that time. He hasn't missed a game since Jan. 11, but Killian Hayes (head) and Saben Lee should see increased usage if Joseph is held out.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Battles foul trouble in loss

    Joseph accumulated nine points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 105-98 loss to the Heat.

    Joseph was limited due to foul trouble, logging just 18 minutes in the loss. For some reason, the Pistons continue to roll with Joseph in the starting lineup, to the detriment of some of their younger players. Despite starting, Joseph has been far from a must-add player in 12-team formats. Over the past month, he is putting up averages of just 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 0.6 steals. Clearly, managers should not be fooled by his role in the rotation.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Gets 15 points efficiently

    Joseph posted 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 34 minutes Saturday in the Pistons' 113-104 loss to the Celtics.

    Though the 30-year-old has modest fantasy upside and doesn't necessarily align with the rebuilding Pistons' developmental timeline, he's nonetheless supplanted 2020 lottery pick Killian Hayes as the team's preferred option at point guard. After supplanting Hayes as the starter in mid-January, Joseph has continued to get the bulk of the playing time at the position, as he's now received at least 27 minutes in eight of Detroit's 11 February games.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Delivers quality all-around line

    Joseph submitted 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 28 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 118-105 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Joseph came through with a quality stat line for those who streamed him in season-long leagues or used him in daily fantasy, but he shouldn't be counted on to replicate these numbers on a consistent basis even though the Pistons have seemingly committed to him as their starting point guard ahead of Killian Hayes. In his five games prior to Sunday, Joseph turned in much more modest averages of 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.8 three-pointers, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks.

  • Pistons' Cory Joseph: Scores team-high 18 points

    Joseph supplied 18 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 111-101 loss to New Orleans.

    Joseph was efficient from the field en route to a team-high 18 points. Even with Killian Hayes (hip) back, the veteran guard continues to draw starts alongside Cade Cunningham, though the latter left Tuesday's contest with a hip injury. Over his last seven games (all starts), Joseph is averaging 11.7 points, 3.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 28.6 minutes. As long as he remains the starter, he should continue to churn out low-end fantasy production.
