Brown will start again Sunday against the Pelicans, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Brown will once again be in the starting lineup when the Pistons face the Pelicans on Sunday due to teammate Reggie Bullock (ankle) still not fully healthy. In his last start, Brown logged seven points and five rebounds in 32 minutes of action Friday.
Brown will start Friday against the 76ers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
With Reggie Bullock (ankle) out, Stanley Johnson was originally named the starter Friday. But he's been scratched due to a sore knee. In five games seeing 20-plus minutes this season, Brown has averaged 6.4 points, 2.8 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals.
Brown finished with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds, and three assists in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 115-92 loss to the Bucks.
Brown saw the fourth-most minutes on the team behind Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond, and Stanley Johnson. With Ish Smith suffering a strained groin and slated for an MRI on Thursday, Brown seems likely to enjoy an increased role in the near future thanks to coach Dwane Casey's confidence in the rookie's ability to operate at point guard.
While Brown isn't much of a fantasy asset, coach Dwane Casey apparently likes what he brings on the defensive end, as he's emerged as a consistent rotation player after struggling to find minutes early in the year. Brown had nine points, three rebounds, two assists and three steals in Monday's loss to the Thunder.
Brown was assigned to the Grand Rapids Drive of the G League on Thursday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Brown has recently fallen out of the Pistons regular rotation, and with the Pistons out of commission until Monday, the rookie will have a good opportunity with the Drive this weekend to get some on-court action. Grand Rapids will play a back-to-back set Friday and Saturday against Windy City and Canton.
