Clippers' Luke Kennard: Traded to Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard was traded to the Clippers during Wednesday's NBA Draft in exchange for the 19th overall pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Per Wojnarowski, It's a three-team deal involving Detroit, Brooklyn and the Clippers. Kennard heads West to the Clippers, while the Nets get Landry Shamet from Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Pistons receive the No. 19 pick from Brooklyn, giving Detroit three picks inside the top 20. Fantasy-wise, Kennard is heading to a better basketball situation, but not one that projects to positive impact his value.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Clear of knee issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) is no longer bothered by knee tendinitis, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

The 24-year-old was sidelined from late December until the season was suspended in March by the knee issues, but he's returned to full health thanks to the extended time off. Kennard averaged 15.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 32.9 minutes over 28 games for the Pistons and should begin next season with a significant role.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Out at least another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) will remain out for at least another week, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Kennard has been able to go through limited parts of practice of late, but he's still not overly close to making his return from chronic knee soreness. On Tuesday, coach Dwane Casey said the team has pushed Kennard's timetable back, and he won't be available to make his return for another week "at the earliest." Kennard hasn't played since Dec. 21.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Still facing uncertain return date
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knees) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Suns.

Kennard was able to take some light contact in practice coming out of the All-Star break, but the Pistons have thus far been unwilling to issue a target date for the third-year wing's return to game action. Until reports surface indicating that Kennard has resumed taking part in full-contact, full-court practices, he shouldn't be viewed as day-to-day.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Still 'a ways away' from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knees) remains "a ways away" from a return but has progressed to taking some contact in practice, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Kennard has been dealing with sore knees, keeping him out since Dec. 23. The organization should be in no rush to get him back on the court, as the team has transitioned into a full rebuild, trading away Andre Drummond and buying out Reggie Jackson.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knees) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Kennard's name cropped up in trade rumors leading up to last week's deadline, but he ultimately stayed put. Now that he's locked in with the Pistons for at least the rest of the season, Kennard can turn his focus solely to moving past the bilateral knee soreness and patellar tendinitis that has sidelined him since late December. Detroit has thus far provided limited updates on Kennard's recovery, so he'll need to ramp up his activity over the next several days if he hopes to be available Dec. 20 for the team's first game out of the All-Star break.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Could be out until All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) may not return until after the All-Star break, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Kennard is currently dealing with bilateral knee soreness and has yet to take part in any meaningful basketball-related activity since Dec. 21 against Chicago. Coach Dwayne Casey hinted Monday that the former Duke standout could be out until at least the All-Star break. If that's indeed the case, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, who's averaging 10.7 points over 27.2 minutes during the past 11 games, could continue to garner most of the minutes at the shooting-guard position for the Pistons moving forward.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Not ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

Kennard has been out since Dec. 21 with bilateral knee soreness and has yet to resume meaningful on-court activity. At this stage, Kennard looks like he's still in the week-to-week phase of his recovery.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Remains without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) is still without a timetable for a return, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Kennard was set to be re-evaluated Tuesday, but the team has yet to reveal anything new on the guard's status. Per Beard, the team has announced that they will provide an update when there is something new to report. Kennard has been sidelined since Dec. 23 due to knee soreness.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Out at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) will be re-evaluated on Jan. 7, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

The guard already sat out two of the last three games with tendinitis in both of his knees, and the Pistons will now hold him out for the next two weeks in an effort to quell the issue. With Kennard out, expect Svi Mykhailiuk, Langston Galloway and Tony Snell to each be in position to benefit. For the season, Kennard is averaging a career-high 32.9 minutes per game.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) will not play Thursday against Washington.

Kennard will miss a second straight game as he continues to deal with tendinitis in his patella. Consider the guard day-to-day until the Pistons say otherwise.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard won't play in Monday's game against the 76ers due to soreness in both knees, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Kennard will sit for the second time in three games after apparently feeling sore following Saturday's 119-107 loss to the Bulls, during which he compiled 16 points (6-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes. With Kennard sidelined, Langston Galloway, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Derrick Rose (knee) are all candidates to absorb extra minutes in the Detroit backcourt.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Scores 16 points after absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard had 16 points (6-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Saturday's 119-107 loss to the Bulls.

Kennard was back on the floor after missing the previous game due to an ongoing knee concern. This could be a situation to monitor moving forward with a real possibility he sits during back-to-back sets. The Pistons are 11-and-19 on the season and appear unlikely to be pushing for a playoff berth at this stage. He has been a top-100 player this season making him a standard league asset.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) will play and start Saturday against the Bulls, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

Knee soreness prevented Kennard from appearing in the Pistons' previous game, but he's set to go Saturday. Across eight December appearances, he's averaging 13.5 points, 3.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 30.9 minutes.

December 21, 2019 01:40 PM
Pistons' Luke Kennard: Considered probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) is listed as probable for Saturday's matchup with the Bulls, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Kennard sat out Friday's loss to the Celtics but looks on track to return against the Bulls. Assuming he does play, look for him to take on his usual workload, while Langston Galloway and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk should go back to their usual roles.

December 20, 2019 12:16 PM
Pistons' Luke Kennard: Unavailable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) was ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Kennard was listed as doubtful, so it's no surprise he won't be suiting up Friday. Langston Galloway and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk figure to see increased minutes in his absence.

December 19, 2019 06:08 PM
Pistons' Luke Kennard: Doubtful Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard is doubtful for Friday's matchup against the Celtics due to knee soreness.

Kennard presumably picked up the injury during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors. If he's out at expected, Langston Galloway, Bruce Brown and Svi Mykhailiuk could all see expanded roles.

December 15, 2019 10:36 AM
Pistons' Luke Kennard: Scores 22 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard totaled 22 points (6-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes during Saturday's win over the Rockets.

Kennard led the way with 22 points, his first time over 20 in five games. Despite struggling with some consistency issues, Kennard's taken the next step in his development this year. He's averaging career-bests in nearly every category while maintaining his trademark efficiency from long range. Through 25 games, the third-year guard's offering 16.2 points, 4.1 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 threes in 32.9 minutes.

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (knee) will play Saturday against the Rockets, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Despite knee soreness, Kennard will take the court Saturday. Across five December appearances, he's averaging 13.0 points, 3.4 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 28.8 minutes.

December 14, 2019 01:48 PM
Pistons' Luke Kennard: Listed as questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Houston due to knee soreness, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Kennard appears to be struggling with a minor knee issue and may be forced to miss Saturday's game. If he's unable to go, look for Langston Galloway to get the start and for Bruce Brown to see increased run off the bench.
