  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Pops for 26 points in finale

    Hayes closed with 26 points (8-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one block across 39 minutes during Sunday's 103-81 loss to the Bulls.

    Hayes finished with at least 25 points, six assists and four rebounds in back-to-back games to end the campaign. The Pistons have already exercised a team option on Hayes' contract for the 2023-24 campaign, but the 2020 first-round pick may struggle to find significant playing time when both Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey are healthy next season.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Standout performance Friday

    Hayes produced 28 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds, six assists, one block and four steals over 40 minutes during Friday's 122-115 win over the Pacers.

    Hayes was dynamic in the win Friday, pouring in a career-high 28 points to go with five combined steals and blocks. While efficiency has been an ongoing issue for Hayes, the absence of Cade Cunningham has certainly done wonders for his confidence. Poor shooting aside, Hayes has been able to provide consistent production on both ends of the floor, averaging 6.2 assists and 1.4 steals. His role heading into next season remains murky, and we will likely see him go undrafted in a lot of formats.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Dime leader in near double-double

    Hayes ended with seven points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound and eight assists across 42 minutes during Tuesday's 118-105 loss to the Heat.

    Hayes posted a team-high assist total while finishing Tuesday's game two dimes and three points short of a double-double performance. Hayes has recorded at least five assists in 12 straight games.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Scores 10 points in loss

    Hayes logged 10 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, six assists and one block across 28 minutes during Friday's 121-115 loss to Houston.

    Despite shooting 39 percent from the field over the past 10 games, Hayes has kept his fantasy value afloat with his ability to chip in across the board. He's averaging 13.2 points, 7.8 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.6 three-pointers in that same span. He's having a great fantasy campaign for those managers who were able to punt field-goal percentage or for those in points formats.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Suffers leg injury late

    Hayes was sidelined for the final 4:17 of Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Thunder with an apparent leg injury, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    The Pistons didn't provide an update on Hayes after the game, but the injury helps explain why the starting point guard was off the floor for the final four minutes of a competitive game. Prior to giving way to R.J. Hampton in crunch time, Hayes posted 11 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes. As a recent lottery pick who needs all the reps he can get at the NBA level, Hayes doesn't fit the profile of the veterans that the 16-60 Pistons have been holding out with suspect injuries of late, but the 22-year-old could still be a candidate to sit out the final six games if there's truly any concern about the injury he suffered Wednesday.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Available against Rockets

    Hayes (leg) is in the starting five for Friday's game versus Houston, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Hayes will start in his ninth straight game Friday despite suffering a leg injury in his previous contest. The 21-year-old guard is averaging 13.6 points, 8.0 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 33.8 minutes across that span.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Finds shot in second half

    Hayes registered 11 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds and five assists over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Thunder.

    Hayes got off seven shots in the first quarter but connected on just one of them, which came from beyond the arc, while adding three assists. He seemed to find his shooting rhythm in the second half, however, going 4-of-7 from the field for eight points as Detroit lost its 15th straight. The second-year point guard also chipped in six boards and five assists in the contest and has dished out at least five dimes in every game this month. Though he shot the ball much better in the second half Wednesday, Hayes is now shooting just 32.4 percent from the field over his last three games and 38.4 percent in March.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Hits for 21 in loss

    Hayes provided 21 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and six assists over 34 minutes during Tuesday's 129-107 loss to the Hawks.

    It's the second time in the last four games that Hayes has scored at least 20 points, a mark he previously hadn't reached since Jan. 8. Tuesday was the third-year point guard's sixth straight start, a stretch in which he's averaging 15.2 points, 9.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.7 steals while shooting 42.4 percent from the floor. The latter number doesn't seem impressive, but it's a big improvement on his career 37.4 percent mark. If Hayes can continue to be at least a mediocre shooter rather than an abysmal one, he becomes a much more intriguing fantasy option.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Top distributor in loss

    Hayes chipped in 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Heat.

    Hayes once again inflicted damage in the field-goal percentage category, but he brought value with his contributions in assists and steals, and his ample production of late in those two areas should be enough for him to be worthy of a spot in a 12-team category league. While starting in each of the past five games, Hayes has averaged 9.8 assists and 2.0 steals.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Leads offense in 20-point outing

    Hayes racked up 20 points (10-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven assists, three rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 117-97 loss to the Wizards.

    Hayes led the short-handed Pistons in scoring, assists and steals Tuesday while overcoming his ongoing shooting woes for at least one night. While Detroit is missing several guards due to injury, Hayes should have a fairly clear path to a regular 30-plus-minute role. He has the ability to put up intriguing numbers in the assists and steals columns if fantasy managers willing to stomach some poor efficiency.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Double-double against Indiana

    Hayes ended with 10 points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, two steals and one rebound in 29 minutes during Monday's 117-97 win over the Pacers.

    The Pistons won for the first time in over a month, and Hayes' second straight double-double was a big part of the successful formula. The third-year point guard has started 11 of Detroit's last 14 games, but his production has been erratic -- he's averaging just 8.0 points, 7.3 assists, 2.9 boards and 1.6 steals while shooting a woeful 30 percent from the floor and 14 percent (6-for-43) from three-point range. Until Hayes' shot improves, his fantasy ceiling will be capped, but he remains much more palatable in points leagues or in category leagues in which managers are punting field-goal percentage.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Busy in loss

    Hayes finished with 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block across 37 minutes during Saturday's 121-115 loss to the Pacers.

    Hayes' usage was through the roof with backcourt mate Jaden Ivey (COVID-19 protocols) inactive for the contest and with wing Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) continuing to sit out. Bogdanovic looks like a potential shutdown candidate for the 15-53 Pistons, but Ivey could be ready to return to the mix as soon as Monday's rematch with the Pistons. Regardless, Hayes looks primed to continue seeing steady minutes the rest of the way, making him an appealing option for fantasy managers in need of help in the assists and steals categories. However, Hayes will likely actively harm any managers trying to make up ground in the field-goal percentage category; he's converting at a lowly 36.8 percent on 10.2 attempts per game this season, and his volume of shots may only increase down the stretch while the Pistons are without other key contributors.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting against Pacers

    Hayes is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

    Hayes moves back to the starting unit with Jaden Ivey (illness) sidelined, and this means he will return to what has been a regular role for him this season. After all, Hayes has started in 41 of his 61 appearances so far. He's averaging 11.0 points and 6.7 assists per game as a starter.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Coming off bench Thursday

    Hayes isn't starting Thursday's game against the Hornets, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hayes has been cleared to return from a two-game absence due to a left hand contusion but will come off the bench Thursday while Rodney McGruder remains in the starting lineup. Hayes has come off the bench in 19 appearances this season and has averaged 6.1 points and 4.1 assists in 21.1 minutes per game during those outings.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Officially available Thursday

    Hayes (hand) is available for Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Hayes missed the last two games with a left hand contusion but was probable ahead of Thursday's matchup, so his status isn't particularly surprising. He'll likely return to the starting lineup while Rodney McGruder comes off the bench. Over Hayes' last nine appearances, he's averaged 7.6 points and 6.6 assists in 28.9 minutes per game.

    Hayes (hand) is probable for Thursday's game versus Charlotte.

    Hayes is expected to play Thursday after missing the previous two games with a left hand contusion. The 21-year-old guard should reclaim his starting spot from Rodney McGruder.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out again Tuesday

    Hayes (hand) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Hayes will miss both halves of the Pistons' current back-to-back set due to a left hand contusion. Alec Burks (foot) replaced Hayes in the starting lineup Monday, but the veteran has been ruled out for Tuesday, as well, leaving Cory Joseph as a likely candidate for increased run at point guard.
