  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: All-around performance in win

    Hayes provided 26 points (12-25 FG, 2-9 3Pt), seven rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and five steals in 40 minutes during Friday's 110-101 win over the Thunder.

    Hayes drew the start in place of Cory Joseph (back), and his role drew even larger with Cade Cunningham (back), Saddiq Bey (hip) and Isaiah Stewart all playing fewer than 10 minutes. The 2020 first-round pick made the most of his opportunity by scoring a season-high 26 points and dishing out a team-high eight assists. He also displayed his defensive prowess by registering at least five steals for the third time this season and multiple blocks for the seventh time. Hayes' strong performance Friday punctuates what has been his best seven-game stretch of the campaign. During that span, he's scored in double figures in six of seven contests and has averaged 12.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.0 blocks in 31.7 minutes per game.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Starting for injured Joseph

    Hayes is starting Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Hayes came off the bench in each of his last five appearances and averaged 10.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 29.2 minutes per game during that time. However, he'll draw the start with Cory Joseph (back) unavailable.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Impressive defensively

    Hayes chipped in 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, one block and four steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 130-123 loss to the Nets.

    Hayes continues to see extra run down the stretch and has responded well. While his shot can come and go, he's been providing nice all-around numbers in the box score and is useful in most fantasy leagues. His defense has been especially noteworthy. Over the past five games, he's totaled nine steals and five blocks.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Coming off bench Wednesday

    Hayes will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Hayes will shift back to a bench role with Cory Joseph returning to the starting lineup after getting a rest day on Monday. He's averaging 6.1 points, 4.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game this season.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: You're Killian me, Smalls

    Hayes finished with 12 points (4-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal over 36 minutes before fouling out of Monday's 119-115 loss to Portland.

    After a zero-point performance Thursday, Hayes supplied an inefficient 12 points Monday. While his six assists were promising, he also had four turnovers. Hayes has fouled out in two of his last three contests and ranks top-25 in the league in fouls per minute. The 20-year-old can chalk his rookie season up to growing pains, but shareholders have to be discouraged by the lack of progression offensively as a sophomore.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Should play Monday

    Hayes (head) is probable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hayes missed Saturday's matchup with Cleveland after taking a hit to the head Thursday, but he's expected to retake the court Monday versus Portland. Frank Jackson (back) and Hamidou Diallo (finger) remain sidelined, so Hayes should continue to see heavy minutes off the bench.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Drops eight dimes in 30 minutes

    Hayes (thigh) played 30 minutes and finished with nine points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), eight assists, four rebounds and one steal Tuesday in the Pistons' 105-98 loss to the Heat.

    Hayes had missed the previous three games with a bruised thigh, but the Pistons had no hesitation about playing him significant minutes in a narrow loss to one of the Eastern Conference's top teams. The second-year point guard was a plus-eight during his time on the court and paid dividends for those that streamed him in for assists before he fouled out of the contest.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Good to go

    Hayes is listed as available for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    As expected, Hayes will make his return from the bruised thigh that kept him out of the last three games. While the second-year guard is averaging 4.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.4 minutes per game, his field goal (36.0% FG) and three-point (26.0% 3Pt) percentages are disastrous and have kept him off of the fantasy radar in most formats.

    Hayes has missed three straight games due to a bruised right adductor, but he's expected to return to the rotation Tuesday. Before his absence, the lefty point guard averaged 4.8 points, 4.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 23.6 minutes over his previous eight contests.

    Hayes will miss a third straight game due to a bruised right adductor. The Pistons will be without Frank Jackson (back), Hamidou Diallo (finger) and Rodney McGruder (hamstring) as well, so Saben Lee is expected to operate as the top guard off the bench.
