Doumbouya (personal) is out for Sunday's finale against the Heat.
Doumbouya's sophomore campaign went similarly to his rookie campaign, though it's not encouraging that his numbers decreased nearly across the board. In 15.5 minutes per game, he averaged 5.1 points and 2.6 rebounds while shooting just 37.9 percent from the field.

Detroit will return to resting most of its regular starters, so Doumbouya will be back in the lineup after he came off the bench for Saturday's loss to the Sixers. The second-year forward has scored in double figures in three straight games for the first time since January of 2020.
Doumbouya compiled 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal across 22 minutes in Saturday's 118-104 loss to the Sixers.
Doumbouya entered Saturday's game with a five-game average of 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists, which is arguably the best run of the youngster's career. Depending on how Detroit's offseason moves shake out, the 20-year-old should be a key part of the team's youth rebuild for next season.
Doumbouya will come off the bench Saturday against the 76ers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Doumbouya topped 30 minutes for the second consecutive game, as the Pistons continued to rest many of their regulars. After a quiet first performance, he erupted in Tuesday's contest for a season-high 20 points. Prior to this effort, he had shot only 38.9 percent from the field across his last four games, so this type of efficiency will be difficult to count on moving forward. Even with increased minutes, Doumbouya has also contributed little else besides 5.0 boards per game across his last five contests.

Doumbouya made his return from a four-game absence and was one of seven Detroit players who scored in double digits in what was a dominant performance from the Pistons' offense. However, expecting Doumbouya to deliver these scoring outputs on a regular basis is simply not realistic. His 14 points were a season-high mark, but he has scored at least 10 points just four times all season.
