Stewart suffered an ankle injury during Thursday's USA Select Team vs. Team USA scrimmage, and he left the game to get treatment, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports.
The severity of the injury is unknown, so it's not clear if Stewart is in jeopardy of missing time next season. He's coming off an excellent rookie season. Drafted 16th overall out of Washington, the center averaged 12.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.1 assists in the 14 games that he started.
Stewart (personal) is out for Sunday's game against the Heat.
Due to a personal matter, Stewart's season will come to a close early. He was the 16th overall pick in the 2020 Draft and he arguably played above his draft position. The rookie saw 21.4 minutes per game and averaged 7.9 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
Stewart (personal) is listed as out for Friday's game against Denver.
Stewart will be sidelined for the first time since the beginning of the season due to a personal matter. Considering that Detroit has just one more game after Friday, he may be done for the season. Across 68 games thus far, Stewart has averaged 7.9 points on 55.3 percent shooting, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per contest.
Stewart totaled 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 32 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 108-96 loss to the Bulls.
With Mason Plumlee resting for the sixth time in seven games, Stewart's production unsurprisingly trended back up again after the rookie was limited to nine points, six boards and two blocks in 20 minutes when Plumlee suited up for Saturday's 118-104 loss to the 76ers. None of Detroit's final three games are part of a back-to-back set, but that doesn't necessarily mean Plumlee will be back in the lineup again this season. Even if Plumlee is shut down for good, Stewart may not be an appealing option in weekly leagues; the Pistons are one of only two teams playing fewer than four games in the final week of the season.

After coming off the bench behind Mason Plumlee on Saturday night, Stewart will return to the lineup as Plumlee sits on the second half of the back-to-back.

Stewart topped 30 minutes for the first time in his last six games, and he attempted double-digit field goals for the second time that span.

Coming off of a few big-time performances, Stewart took on a lesser role off the bench with Mason Plumlee starting and playing 32 minutes. The rookie has proven capable of racking up points, rebounds and defensive stats whenever the minutes are there, but on nights when Plumlee is active, Stewart's ceiling is quite a bit lower.

Equally impactful was Stewart's work on the defensive end of the floor, as he nabbed a career-high three steals and posted multiple blocks for the third consecutive contest. Whether starting or coming off the bench, Stewart should be headed for a big role to close the season, particularly when Plumlee finds himself sidelined.

Stewart posted 15 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 21 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in Friday's win over the Thunder.
It was a monster effort from the rookie, who started at center in place of the resting Mason Plumlee. In 32 minutes, Stewart set a new career high in rebounds while notching his third-highest point total of the season. Stewart can still provide lower-end value when coming off the bench, but he'll be a player to monitor closely over the next few weeks in the event the Pistons begin to rest Plumlee more aggressively.

Stewart's work on the boards makes him the best rebounder of the 2020 class at this point in the season with an average of 6.0 rebounds per game, At only 19 years old, the Washington product works his 6-8 frame like a seasoned veteran, and his opportunities with Detroit will only increase over time.
