Bone is expected to serve as the top backup at point guard behind Cole Anthony in Friday's game at Houston, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Starter Markelle Fultz exited early Wednesday's 105-94 win over the Cavaliers with what proved to be a season-ending ACL tear, resulting in both Anthony and Bone seeing boosts in playing time. Anthony (32 minutes) ended up seeing the far larger share of the work and will likely continue to dominate the playing time while stepping into a starting role, but Bone should at least be an every-night rotation player until Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is ready to return to the Magic's second unit. Bone performed capably in his 12 minutes Wednesday, putting up seven points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist.
Bone joined the Magic on a two-way contract Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Bone made his NBA debut last season for the Pistons but failed to make much of an impression. He played a total of 53 minutes across 10 games, scoring 12 points and registering eight assists.
Bone will be an unrestricted free agent, as the Pistons will not extent a qualifying offer to him, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Bone was selected by Detroit with the 57th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The guard from the University of Tennessee played in 10 Pistons games and in 31 games with the G League Grand Rapid Drive. Chances are, he'll start off the upcoming season in the G League.
Bone supplied 28 points (9-21 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's win over the Herd.
Bone was excellent in his return to Grand Rapids, leading the team in points and assists while manging a plus-18 net rating on the night. In all likelihood, this G League stint won't last long, as Bone has cracked the Pistons' rotation in recent weeks.
Bone was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
In the aftermath of the Reggie Jackson buyout, the Pistons have opted to call up Bone. He's appeared in nine games for the Pistons, totaling six points, eight assists, one rebound and one steal in 48 minutes. It's possible he sees some run moving forward as the Pistons transition into a rebuild.
Bone has been recalled from the G League and is available for Friday's game against the Thunder, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Bone is one of only nine players available for the Pistons on Friday. In seven appearances for Detroit this season, he's averaging 0.6 points in 3.9 minutes.
Bone has been transferred to the G League.
Bone has seen only spot minutes for the Pistons. He'll continue to see most of his action with the Grand Rapids Drive.
Bone will be made available for Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
As usual, Bone will most likely function as rotational depth for the Pistons. The rookie guard's seen action in just four games on the season, averaging 1.0 point in 3.5 minutes per contest.
Bone generated 17 points (6-19 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 assists, three rebounds and three steals in 25 minutes during Wednesday's win over Long Island.
Despite struggling with his shot, Bone tallied a double-double and finished with a plus-12net rating. The rookie point guard continues to impress with both his shooting and distribution numbers. On the year, Bone's averaging 18.2 points, 7.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 45.0 percent from the field, 39.0 percent from three and 76.3 percent from the line in 32.7 minutes per contest.
Bone (knee) played 25 minutes and contributed 17 points (7-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine assists and one rebound Saturday in the G League Grand Rapids Drive's 117-113 loss to Raptors 905.
Bone looks to be healthy again after a sore left knee prevented him from suiting up for the G League affiliate and the Pistons since Dec. 22. Expect the two-way rookie to see most of his action in Grand Rapids moving forward, as Detroit doesn't have a spot for him in the NBA rotation.
Bone (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game at San Antonio, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Bone put up 22 points last Friday in the G League but is on the injury report for the second straight contest due to the left knee soreness. The 22-year-old hasn't seen NBA action since late November, so the injury is unlikely to impact Detroit's rotations Saturday.
Bone has been ruled out for Monday's game against Philadelphia due to left knee soreness, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Bone hasn't taken the court since Nov. 23 for the Pistons, so his absence shouldn't cause much of an issue for Detroit. He'll be considered day-to-day.
Bone totaled 22 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two assists and a rebound in 31minutes during Friday's win over the Hustle.
Despite his inability to provide much in the way of counting stats, Bone reach the 20 -point mark yet again and finished with a team-high plus-10 net rating. The Tennessee product's likely been Grand Rapids' best player for most of the season as he's providing 18.4 points, 7.7 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 33.4 minutes per game. When he's on the court, the Drive carry a plus-3.1 average net rating.
Bone generated 23 points (10-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt), nine assists and five rebounds in 33 minutes Sunday against College Park.
Although Bone was the only player on Grand Rapids to generate consistent offense, his efforts led to a minus-12 net rating. That aside, Bone's been a revelation for the Pistons' organization as the second-round pick in the 2019 draft is averaging 19.1 points, 8.1 assists and 3.3 rebounds across 35.0 minutes in 14 G League games.
Bone recorded 24 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes Friday against College Park.
Bone is dialed in as Grand Rapids' point guard, finishing Friday's game with an impressive 4:1 assist to turnover ratio. The 22-year-old has impressed in the G-League this season and is amongst the top candidates to receive a permanent call up at some point.
Bone totaled 21 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 assists and six rebounds in 41 minutes Wednesday against South Bay.
Another day, another double-double for the University of Tennessee alum, who seems to be a step ahead of most of the G-League competition. In 35.2 minutes per game, Bone's now averaging 18.8 points, 8.1 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.5 threes.
Bone totaled 34 points (13-23 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 39 minutes during Saturday's win over Texas.
Bone topped 30 points for the first time this year, helping lead Grand Rapids to an important overtime win. His scoring average continues to tick up as the rookie continues to adapt to the level of professional play. In 10 G-League games this season, the rookie point guard's averaging 18.5 points, 7.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 34.5 minutes.
Bone contributed 14 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's dismantling of the Bayhawks.
Bone returned to his usual point guard duties for the Drive after receiving a brief call-up last weekend. The 57th overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft is on the verge of making the Pistons' roster as he's impressed in nine games of action for the team's G-League affiliate. In 34.0 minutes, Bone's contributing 16.8 points, 8.0 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals.
The Pistons assigned Bone to the Grand Rapids Drive on Monday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Bone will join the Pistons' G-League affiliate as he will look to receive extra reps. Considering the rookie guard has compiled just four points in seven minutes of play over the three games that he has played in the NBA, the extended run in the G-League will allow him to see his playing opportunities increase.
Bone has been called up from the G League and is available for Saturday's game against the Bucks, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
The Pistons are dealing with backcourt injuries, so Bone may need to tak the court. If he does, it would be his third NBA appearance of the season.
