Andre Drummond posted a 14-point, 14-rebound double-double on Sunday, to go with one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Drummond was solid, but Detroit's bench was particularly awful in this one, which resulted in Charlotte going on huge runs whenever the starters left the floor. As a side note, Drummond’s assist numbers have seen a major dip since Blake Griffin's arrival, and with Griffin being the more talented playmaker, that trend will likely continue.

Blake Griffin netted 20 points on 10-of-18 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds, four assists and six turnovers across 31 minutes.

Griffin was shutout on the glass with Andre Drummond and Dwight Howard going to battle on the boards, and he also missed all three of his 3-point attempts, but him going away from the 3-point shot helped him shoot a higher percentage. The Pistons did a better job of getting him touches in the post, so perhaps Stan Van Gundy realizes that allowing Griffin to jack up 6.2 triple per contest when he's connecting on just 30.4% of those attempts isn't the wisest maneuver.

Stanley Johnson was quite through 28 minutes of action during Sunday's blowout loss to the Hornets, finishing with nine points, one triple, three boards, one steal and one turnover.

Johnson didn’t even attempt his first shot until midway through the second quarter, a shot that he bricked, and he was more-or-less invisible throughout the game. Detroit allowed 70 points by halftime, which was the second-most amount of point they've allowed through any half this season, and this game was a train wreck from start to finish for the Pistons.
Feb 25 - 3:45 PM

Ish Smith scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with one 3-pointer, one rebound, eight assists, two steals and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

Smith did a nice job of getting to the rack, and he’s been crushing it in the paint over the past three games, connecting on 90.9% of his shot attempts at the rim. Reggie Jackson is expected to get back to the court sometime in March, but he’ll likely be eased back into things after a lengthy layoff, so his return won’t immediately sink Smith’s value.
Feb 25 - 3:41 PM

Reggie Bullock went 5-of-14 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 14 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 30 minutes.

The Pistons came out fairly flat in this one, and Bullock struggled to get going due to some tough defense from Nicolas Batum, missing his first four shots and not connecting from beyond the arc until mid-way through the third quarter. As a team, Detroit only put in four 3-pointers on 4-of-18 shooting, which was a season-low and helped contribute to the blowout loss.
Feb 25 - 3:34 PM

Patty Mills will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cavs.

Danny Green (illness) will be coming off the bench in his return from a one-game absence, so while Mills will remain a starter, he likely won't play quite as many minutes with Green available. Joining Mills in the starting five will be Dejounte Murray, Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol.

Caris LeVert (knee) will be available to play Monday vs. the Bulls.

LeVert wasn't playing all that well prior to going down, and considering he'll likely be on a minutes limit upon his return, there's not much reason to grab him in most leagues. He'll siphon away minutes from guys like Nik Stauskas and Joe Harris once he's fully up to speed.
Feb 25 - 3:10 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Caris LeVert (knee) will be available to play on Monday vs. the Bulls.

RHJ and LeVert could be dealing with a minutes limit in their first game back from lengthy layoffs, but Hollis-Jefferson is worth swooping up in most leagues if he was cut during the injury. RHJ's return to the court will result in fewer minutes for Quincy Acy and Joe Harris, and LeVert might push Nik Stauskas out of the rotation entirely.
