Pistons' Thon Maker: Starting Monday
Updating a previous report, Maker will start Monday's game against the Cavs, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
A Pistons' writer initially reported that Detroit would go with Jon Leuer in place of the resting Blake Griffin, but the Pistons will go with the more sensible choice in Maker, who, unlike Leuer, has been a regular part of the rotation in recent weeks.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jon Leuer: Set to start Monday
Leuer will start Monday's game against the Cavaliers in place of Blake Griffin (rest), Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
Leuer hasn't played a second in any of the last three games, and he wasn't even active for a matchup with the Lakers on Friday, but he'll move into the lineup alongside Andre Drummond up front. The Wisconsin product has appeared in only five games since the start of February.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Out for rest Monday
Griffin will miss Monday's outing against the Cavaliers due to rest, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Being a second game of a back-to-back for the Pistons, the team has elected to rest their star against the second-worse team in the Eastern Conference on Monday. It's currently unknown who will start in Griffin's place Monday but teammates Thon Maker and Jon Leuer are likely candidates to either start and get increased minutes. Griffin should be good to go for the Pistons' next contest at Phoenix on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Langston Galloway: Comes back to earth in win
Galloway totaled 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and an assist across 28 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Galloway had an efficient night shooting, though he had only mild results in the box score in his 28 minutes on Sunday. One game removed from a 23-point outburst, Galloway returned his usual value.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Scores 20 in win
Jackson finished with 20 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four assists, two rebounds and a steal across 24 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Jackson had a big game in Sunday's win, trailing only Blake Griffin (25 points) for the team lead in scoring. That's back-to-back 20-point outings for Jackson, though fantasy owners need to be cognizant of his inconsistencies in the scoring department throughout the season.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Drops 25 on Raptors in win
Griffin produced 25 points (9-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds and three assists across 33 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Griffin at least partially snapped his cold shooting streak in Sunday's win, draining half of his eight three-pointers and nine of his 21 shots from the floor overall. After going 8-31 in his last three games, Sunday's shooting was encouraging, though Griffin could still improve in that department moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Big double-double in win
Drummond finished with 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-5 FT), 17 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 33 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Drummond went off for another massive double-double, clearing 17 shots off the glass and chipping in 15 points. It's getting difficult to come up with additional superlatives to describe his rebounding prowess, but Drummond is one of the best in the game at crashing the glass and is a near-lock for a double-double every night....

Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Will start Sunday
Jackson (ankle) will start in Sunday's game against the Raptors, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Jackson was dealing with ankle soreness, however he is feeling well enough to start. He came into Sunday as probable, so it seems he should be able to play his usual role.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Likely to play Sunday
Jackson is considered probable for Sunday's game against the Raptors due to right ankle soreness, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Jackson's appearance on the injury report is likely for precautionary reasons. His issue isn't thought to be serious but there's a chance it could limit him slightly against Toronto. If he ends up being held out or seeing fewer minutes look for Ish Smith or Jose Calderon to see some extra action.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Kalin Lucas: Scores 38 in win
Lucas finished Friday's win over Stockton with 38 points (14-24 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists, two rebounds and two steals.
That's back-to-back 30-point games for Lucas, who missed time earlier in March with an ankle injury. The two-way player likely won't have much of an impact with the Pistons to conclude the rest of the regular season, but he's been the driving force for Grand Rapid's last-second playoff push....

Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Productive stat line in win
Jackson finished with 20 points (6-19 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Lakers on Friday.
After two duds in the box score, Jackson produced a big night across the stat sheet, highlighted by his 20 points and four three-pointers. The ebbs and flows of Jackson's production from night to night are a natural part of his game and one that fantasy owners will need to keep in mind when putting him in lineups.... See More ...

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Scores 15 in win
Griffin finished with 15 points (3-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-12 FT), nine assists and two rebounds across 34 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Lakers on Friday.
Griffin just missed a double-double in Friday's win, missing out on the feat by one assist. Although it's an improvement on Wednesday's showing, Griffin has hit a bit of a slump recently, shooting 8-31 from the floor in his last three games.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Langston Galloway: Leads all scorers in win
Galloway totaled 23 points (8-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Lakers on Friday.
Galloway put up his second-highest point total of the season in Friday's win, draining four three balls in the process. He's been an important role player for the Pistons this season averaging 21.1 minutes per game, but scoring nights like this are few and far between for Galloway, rendering him a deep league player....

Pistons' Andre Drummond: Dominates short-handed Lakers
Drummond totaled 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 FT), 23 rebounds and two blocks across 37 minutes in the Pistons' win over the Lakers on Friday.
Drummond bounced back from an ugly performance on Wednesday, scoring 19 points and pulling down a monstrous 23 boards. Games like this have become commonplace for Drummond in what's shaping up to be his most productive season as a pro.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bruce Brown: In starting lineup
Brown (ankle) will start Friday against the Lakers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Brown was listed as probable, so it's not shocking that he was named in the starting lineup. He's been somewhat lacking in the scoring column of late, averaging a mere 3.0 points over his last five matchups.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jon Leuer: Inactive for Friday
Leuer is inactive for Friday's game against the Lakers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Leuer has played in just two of Detroit's previous nine games, so it's unsurprising that he's listed as inactive.... See More ... See Less
