Kennard scored 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists and a block in 28 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 112-103 win over the Heat.
It was the best performance of his young career to date. Kennard has yet to establish himself as a regular part of the Pistons' rotation, but more nights like this should get the 12th overall pick in this year's draft on the court more often.
Kennard was assigned to the G League's Grand Rapids Drive on Sunday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
The rookie first-round pick has struggled to get off the bench during the Pistons' first 10 games of the season, appearing in just five of those contests. With Detroit off the schedule until Wednesday, Kennard will head to the G League on a temporary basis in order to pick up some more extended run.
Kennard is listed as inactive for Tuesday's matchup against the Lakers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
It will be the second consecutive inactive listing for Kennard. The rookie only played two minutes in the game prior to that, so he is simply outside of the rotation at the moment.
Kennard is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Warriors, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Kennard did not play in Saturday's game against the Clippers after playing just two minutes against the Timberwolves the game before. With the Pistons boasting solid backcourt depth, Kennard could be a healthy inactive fairly often so long as everyone stays healthy.
Kennard finished with six points (3-4 FG) and two rebounds across 26 minutes during Monday's 107-97 win over the Pacers.
Kennard projects to be the Pistons' backup shooting guard behind Avery Bradley and has been showing some potential through the preseason. Through three exhibitions, he's 11-of-22 from the field en route to 25 points across 76 total minutes. Due to his role, however, he can be avoided in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
