Nets' Bruce Brown: Shipped to Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pistons traded Brown to the Nets on Monday in exchange for forward Dzanan Musa and a 2021 second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

A 2018 second-round pick, Brown appeared in 132 games (99 starts) and averaged 6.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 23.4 minutes per game across his two seasons with Detroit. Though he received ample run for a non-contending Pistons squad in 2019-20, Brown's playing time will likely take a hit while he moves on to a Brooklyn team that projects to be one of the Eastern Conference's better outfits in 2020-21 with a healthy Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. As a defensive-minded player capable of playing point guard and on the wing, Brown could end up being a replacement for Garrett Temple, assuming the Nets elect not to exercise his $5.01 million team option for the upcoming season.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Had thumb surgery in April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown underwent surgery in late April to repair a ligament in his right thumb but notes that he'd be ready to play if the NBA season resumes, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

It's not clear when Brown suffered the injury, but it sounds like he's recovered well. This season, he's averaged 8.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals across 28.2 minutes.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) was ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Sixers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Brown was considered questionable with a right ankle sprain but won't be available Wednesday. Jordan McRae and Khyri Thomas could see increased run in his absence.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Dealing with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers with a right ankle sprain.

The 23-year-old presumably picked up the injury during Sunday's spot start against the Knicks, as he had 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds over 37 minutes. Derrick Rose (ankle) remains sidelined, so Brown should continue to see plenty of opportunities, if available. Brandon Knight and Jordan McRae are otherwise in line to see increased run.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Contributes 16 points as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown tallied 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds across 37 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 loss to the Knicks.

With Derrick Rose (ankle) sidelined for at least a month, opportunities are going to open up throughout Detroit's backcourt. Although Brandon Knight got the first crack at replacing Rose at the point, it's Brown who played the floor general Sunday while Knight sat with a knee injury. Brown possesses a versatile skill set that makes him valuable as a placeholder at several positions, and it's likely that we'll see a lot of the Miami product as the season draws to a close.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Moving into starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown will start Sunday's game against the Knicks, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

With Brandon Knight (knee) limited, the Pistons will bring Brown off the bench and move him into the starting five. Brown made his return from an injury of his own Saturday night against Utah and finished with five points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Well-rounded line in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) produced five points (2-6 FG, 1-1 FT), seven assists and five rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Pistons' 111-105 loss to the Jazz.

Brown rejoined the Pistons' rotation after missing the previous four contests with a left knee contusion. He handled what looked to be a relatively normal minutes load in his return, turning in a well-rounded stat line in the process. The Pistons appear set to proceed with Brown as their top wing off the bench moving forward, though he could get some more on-ball work in Sunday's game against the Knicks. Starting point guard Brandon Knight (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the second half of the back-to-back set.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Off injury report for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's action against the Jazz.

A bruised left knee has kept Brown on the shelf across the past four games, but he'll make his return Saturday. In February, he averaged 10.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steal in 34.1 minutes.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Fully practices Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dwane Casey said Brown (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Casey added that he thought Brown, who has missed the past four games with a left knee contusion, was going to play Wednesday, so all signs point to the 23-year-old returning Saturday against Utah. He should be considered questionable for now, with an update regarding his status likely coming closer to game time.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Out Wednesday vs. Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

As expected, Brown will miss a fourth straight game due to a left knee contusion. Newly signed Jordan McRae will be available to help fill some of the minutes.

March 3, 2020 06:00 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Doubtful for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

Brown has already missed the last three games, so he appears headed toward a fourth consecutive absence. Prior to the injury, Brown had averaged more than 34 minutes per game over his last nine appearances.

February 29, 2020 09:44 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Brown will miss his third consecutive game as he continues to battle left knee soreness. The 23-year-old's next chance to take the court will be Wednesday against the Thunder.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Suns, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Brown will miss his second consecutive game due to knee soreness. His next chance to suit up will come Sunday versus the Kings.

February 27, 2020 08:40 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Questionable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Suns.

Brown continues to deal with left knee soreness, which is why his availability remains up in the air for Friday. His status should be updated closer to tipoff, likely following pregame activities.

February 25, 2020 08:24 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) was ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

The 23-year-old was initially considered questionable with the left knee soreness, but he won't be suiting up for Tuesday's game. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Tony Snell should see increased minutes due to Brown's absence.

February 25, 2020 08:04 AM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is being considered questionable for Tuesday's game against Denver due to left knee soreness.

Brown logged 33 minutes in Sunday's loss to Portland, but not without picking up this knee issue. He'll likely be reevaluated closer to Tuesday's tipoff to determine his availability.

February 24, 2020 03:56 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Fourth straight 10-board game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown compiled eight points (3-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 33 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 107-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

The 6-foot-4, 202-pound Brown has been a menace on the glass lately, pulling down 10 boards in four consecutive games. Coach Dwane Casey has been resistant to turning Brown loose at point guard, but the second-year player looks poised to see ample run at either wing spot the rest of the season, whether he's deployed as a starter or off the bench.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Teases triple-double versus Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown amassed 16 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and seven assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 126-106 loss to the Bucks.

Brown came off the bench with Derrick Rose moving into the starting lineup, though Rose finished with more field-goal attempts (15) than points (12) while playing fewer minutes (23) than the 23-year-old sophomore. Given that Reggie Jackson was bought out, Brown is likely to play a major role down the stretch this season even if he does remain in a reserve role.

Pistons' Bruce Brown: Scratches out double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown scored 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding 12 rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes during Monday's 87-76 loss to the Hornets.

Getting another start with Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (hip) and Derrick Rose (hip) both out of action, Brown did just enough to earn his third double-double of the season. The 23-year-old is averaging 10.8 points, 6.5 boards, 4.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 36.0 minutes through six games in February, but his expanded role should dwindle once the Pistons' backcourt gets healthier.

February 8, 2020 04:36 PM
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Nabs season-high five steals Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown posted four points (1-9 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five steals, one block and one assist across 33 minutes during Friday's 108-101 loss to the Thunder.

Brown continues to rack up eclectic stat lines, and Friday marked a season-high five steals for the guard. While he's just a passable shooter, his ability to fill the box score has resulted in 10 performances this season with at least 30 fantasy points, including two 50-fantasy-point efforts. As the Pistons shift into a full rebuild, look for Brown to continue seeing a significant role.
