The Pistons were previously considering Buycks as questionable for Wednesday following back-to-back absences due to the illness, but his removal from the injury report suggests he's back to full health. Though Buycks should dress Wednesday, it's uncertain if he'll reenter the rotation with Langston Galloway having produced 13 points in both of the past two games as the primary backup to starting point guard Ish Smith.
Buycks (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.
The illness has prevented Buycks from suiting up in Detroit's last two games, but the Pistons will likely wait and see how he's feeling following Wednesday's morning shootaround before determining his status for the contest later that evening. If available Wednesday, Buycks is no lock to reenter head coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation over Langston Galloway as the top backup to starting point guard Ish Smith.
Buycks (illness) will remain out for Monday's game against the Blazers, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
The same illness kept Buycks out of Saturday's win over the Heat, and his absence should again mean increased time for Langston Galloway, who saw 21 minutes of action off the bench Saturday. Consider Buycks questionable for Wednesday's meeting with the Nets.
Buycks (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Exiled from the Pistons' rotation in late January, Buycks had reentered the backcourt mix for three consecutive games, averaging 10.7 points, 2.0 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 18.3 minutes per contest before the illness prevented him from playing in Saturday's 111-107 win over the Heat. Langston Galloway served as the primary understudy to starting point guard Ish Smith for that game and would reprise that role again if Buycks' illness keeps him unavailable Monday.
Buycks (illness) will not play Saturday against the Heat, James Edwards of The Athletic reports.
Buycks is battling a fever, and both he and Luke Kennard will be unavailable, leaving the Pistons shorthanded in the backcourt Saturday. As such, Langston Galloway should pick up increased minutes off the bench, while Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson could also be set for big minutes.
