Top Killian Hayes News

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Well-rounded effort Tuesday

    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.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Well-rounded line in big minutes

    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.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Back in starting five

    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.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Off injury report

    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.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out vs. Grizzlies

    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.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Questionable with illness

    Hayes is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Grizzlies due to an illness.

    Hayes has appeared in each of the Pistons' past seven games, but he may need to sit out Thursday. Cory Joseph (ankle) is also questionable. If both are available, Hayes could come off the bench. If both are out, Saben Lee and Frank Jackson would see more time at point guard.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Increasing workload

    Hayes scored four points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2FT to go along with seven assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

    Despite his poor play, it was a notable night for Hayes, as it marked the first time he's played on both ends of a back-to-back since returning from a hip injury. Hayes has shown the ability to rack up assists as he's played more regularly by averaging 6.8 dimes across his last 10 contests. In formats that count turnovers, however, Hayes is a huge detriment, as he's turned the ball over 3.9 times per game in that same span.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Tallies seven assists

    Hayes scored seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with seven assists, two rebounds, and two assists across 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Magic.

    Hayes remained in the starting lineup for the third straight game and has earned a minimum of 28 minutes in that span. Though he racked up seven assists -- he has averaged 8.0 dimes per game in that three-game span-- that effort was offset by five turnovers. That's understandably been an issue for the young rookie, as he's turned the ball over at least three times in each of his last seven contests.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Well-balanced effort in loss

    Hayes had 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.

    The rookie point guard has had some major issues scoring the ball efficiently of late, but he's now handed out 22 assists and racked up seven steals over his last three games. Expect Hayes to continue to go through the typical rookie-point-guard ups and downs as the Pistons close out a rebuilding season.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting Thursday

    Hayes will start Thursday's contest against the Mavericks. Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

    With Cory Joseph (rest/ankle) out, Hayes will make his fourth start since returning from a hip injury. Over his previous three starts, he's averaged 11.0 points, 7.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 30.3 minutes.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Coming off bench

    Hayes will come off the bench Saturday against the Pacers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Cory Joseph (ankle) will get the nod as the starting point guard. In Hayes' past five appearances as a reserve, he's averaged 6.0 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 21.6 minutes.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Scores 12 with five dimes

    Hayes had 12 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, a steal and a block across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Spurs.

    Hayes returned from a one-game absence and tied his season-high mark in points, though the efficiency remains an issue -- he needed 15 shots to end up with 12 points. Hayes is working his way back from a hip injury that sidelined him for most of the season, and while the rookie has shown promise, he doesn't have a lot of upside as a young player who's still adjusting to the league while playing for one of the worst teams in The Association.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting Thursday

    Hayes will start Thursday's game against the Spurs, Dan Weiss of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

    Hayes will start after he had missed Wednesday's game due to injury management. He's coming off a career high of nine assists in his last outing Monday.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out Wednesday

    Hayes is out due to injury management Wednesday against the Mavericks.

    The Pistons continue to play it safe with the rookie after he missed the bulk of the season due to a hip injury, and he'll sit out the front end of the back-to-back set. Cory Joseph is likely to start in his place.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Career-best nine assists

    Hayes scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine assists, three rebounds and one steal across 33 minutes in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.

    Hayes was in the starting lineup for his second consecutive game after sitting out on Saturday for rest. He topped 30 minutes for the first time in his career and delivered a career-high nine assists. That production was tempered slightly by his five turnovers, though it was still one of Hayes' best performances of his rookie campaign. The Pistons are likely to continue to play it safe with his workload, though when he takes the floor Hayes should have every opportunity to be productive.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting Monday

    Hayes will start Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

    The 19-year-old sat out Saturday's matchup with the Wizards for rest purposes but will return to the lineup Monday against the Cavs. Hayes is averaging 6.5 points, 4.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 22.5 minutes over six games since missing nearly three months with a hip injury.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out for rest Saturday

    Hayes is out Saturday against the Wizards for rest.

    Hayes started Friday for the first time since Jan. 4. However, he'll be given Saturday's game off for injury management, as the organization will opt on the side of caution with the rookie, who missed 41 games due to a hip injury from Jan. 6 through April 1. In his absence, Cory Joseph should see more run.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Racks up five steals in win

    Hayes had nine points (3-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, five steals and a block in Friday's win over the Thunder.

    Back in the starting five for the first time since Jan. 4, the rookie didn't have his best night offensively, but he salvaged a strong all-around fantasy line with seven assists and career-high five steals. Detroit was without both Cory Joseph (ankle) and Dennis Smith (knee), which allowed Hayes to log his second-highest minutes total (27) of the season.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Not on injury report

    Hayes (hip) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Clippers.

    Hayes missed Sunday's game for injury management purposes, but all indications are that he'll be active and available Wednesday night. The rookie has averaged 20.8 minutes per game off the bench in four appearances since returning from a long-term injury absence.
