Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Perfect from field
Livers recorded 14 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes during Sunday's 118-106 loss to Philadelphia.
Livers struggled to see the field for most of the season, but he was a bench option in March and started the final five games of the campaign. He averaged 9.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game during that five-game stretch and scored in double digits three times in that span.... See More ... See Less

With Marvin Bagley (hip) and Kelly Olynyk (rest) out, Livers drew the first start of his career and recorded season highs in points, rebounds and minutes. The rookie second-round pick also registered at least one steal and one block in the same game for the second time during the campaign. Livers has made just 15 appearances this season and is averaging 5.9 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 18.7 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less

Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Lands career-high 16 points in loss
Livers provided 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Tuesday's 105-98 loss to Miami.
Livers came to play Tuesday, putting up career-high numbers in scoring, rebounds and three-pointers. Despite flashing some upside, his playing time is likely to be dependent on the availability of other players, notably Cade Cunningham. With that being said, he does appear to have moved ahead of some of the veterans in the rotation, and the Pistons do have a favorable schedule moving forward. Managers in deeper formats could do worse than taking a flier on Livers given the trajectory of the Pistons right now.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Livers delivers
Livers finished with nine points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and three steals across 25 minutes during Monday's 113-110 overtime win over the Hawks.
Appearing in his sixth career game, Livers had never exceed 13 minutes prior to putting forth easily the best game of his season Monday. It's a small sample size, but Livers nonetheless supplied his most well-rounded effort. Hamidou Diallo (illness) didn't play Monday, which is certainly noteworthy in regard to Livers' future involvement.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Back with parent club
The Pistons recalled Livers from the G League's Motor City Cruise on Sunday.
Livers, who had been sidelined since Dec. 21 following surgery on his right foot, returned to action in the G League on Wednesday, totaling 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, one steal and one block in 26 minutes. The rookie second-round pick has only made one appearance at the NBA level this season, so he's unlikely to be part of the rotation if he's active Sunday in the Pistons' game against the Hornets....

Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Working in G League
Livers will begin the post-All-Star-break portion of the Pistons' schedule in the G League with the Motor City Cruise.
A foot injury has limited Livers to just one appearance for the Pistons this season, but coach Dwane Casey said Wednesday that he's hoping to get an extended look at the Michigan product down the stretch. "He's a guy we want to look at and evaluate, see how he fits in," Casey said of Livers, per Omari Sankofa of the Detroit Free Press. For now, the 2021 second-round pick will work in the G League, but it sounds like he'll get a chance to make an impact at the NBA level at some point over the next several weeks.... See More ...
