Will Bynum has made a big chance to his diet in an effort to boost his overall energy.
Bynum has abandoned sugar, flour, artificial colorings, and milk as he thinks they dull concentration and sap energy. His new diet now mostly consists of baked chicken, fish, fresh fruits, and vegetables. "Now I’m completely wired all day," he said. "I was already like that, but now it’s kind of scary." Bynum will again come off the bench for the Pistons this season and doesn't warrant any fantasy attention outside of deep leagues. Sep 18 - 11:49 AM

Will Bynum (foot) will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

His foot injury will have kept him out for the final seven games of the season. Bynum has been effective off the bench and the Pistons play better team ball when he's out there.
Apr 16 - 7:43 PM

Will Bynum (foot) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

He hasn't been close to returning to the lineup due to his foot injury. Rodney Stuckey has seen extra chances in the starting lineup and is a decent option in points-heavy formats.
Apr 11 - 6:42 PM

Will Bynum (foot) will not play on Tuesday.

This makes three straight DNPs for Bynum and it's unclear when he might return to action. Beat writer Keith Langlois writes that Pistons coach John Loyer "kinda, sorta" hinted at a lineup change for Tuesday's game, so we'll keep an eye on the Pistons' starters as tip-off approaches.
Apr 8 - 6:50 PM

Will Bynum (foot) is out again for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

In addition to giving Peyton Siva a foothold in the rotation, Bynum's absence means that Rodney Stuckey will spend some time as a backup PG. With the Celtics' backcourt already running on fumes without Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley, guys like Brandon Jennings and Stuckey have a golden opportunity to step up.
Apr 5 - 6:50 PM

Will Bynum (foot) will not play in Friday's game against the Nets.

Bynum's absence will give Peyton Siva a chance to get back in the rotation as Brandon Jennings' backup.
Apr 4 - 11:24 AM

Will Bynum scored 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with two rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench on Monday.

This is Bynum's ceiling right now and that gives him just deep league appeal at best.
Mar 31 - 11:52 PM

Will Bynum played 29 minutes vs. the Sixers on Saturday with five points, two boards, two assists and five turnovers on 2-of-11 shooting.

He played a little more tonight with Brandon Jennings being ejected in the first quarter. Bynum has played fairly well when given minutes, but stinking it up against one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA is a tough pill to swallow. Jennings won't be suspended, so there's no reason to add Bynum here.
Mar 29 - 9:52 PM

Will Bynum scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and nine assists in 17 minutes off the bench on Monday.

While the assists are nice the zeroes in defensive stat categories are a killer and he didn't hit a three, either. That's the risk in using a bench guy with little history of sustained production while he's hot, but it won't be surprising if he throws up another points and assists line the next time out. Rodney Stuckey scored 19 points with one three and that's just about it to keep his deep league credentials somewhat strong.
Mar 25 - 1:36 AM

Will Bynum had six points, 10 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

Unlike Friday, Brandon Jennings played reasonably well in this one, yet Bynum was still effective. He's had seven or more assists in four of his last five games and is worth a deep-league look with four games next week.
Mar 23 - 1:15 AM

Will Bynum came off the bench for 12 points, 10 assists and a 3-pointer on 4-of-8 shooting in Wednesday's loss in Denver.

Starter Brandon Jennings was once again mediocre (3-of-8, 7 points, 5 assists) and Bynum stepped up off the bench. This shouldn't come as too big a surprise, as Bynum has been playing well for some time now, and is averaging 10.8 points and 5.4 assists over his last five games.
Mar 20 - 1:29 AM

Will Bynum scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound and seven assists in 22 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Bynum may look like a deep league value but he has hit just 39.1 percent of his shots over the last four games while turning the ball over nearly three times per contest. His 13.8 points and 4.8 assists over that span don't do nearly enough to offset that and he's still waiver wire fodder.
Mar 12 - 11:20 PM

Will Bynum came off the bench to hit 4-of-14 shots for eight points and seven assists in 22 minutes.

Brandon Jennings was really struggling tonight (1-of-10 shooting), so we were hoping for a little more from Bynum. He was still effective with 8 & 7, and is averaging 12.6 points, 3.4 assists and 1.0 steals on 35 percent shooting over his last five games.
Mar 11 - 10:52 PM

Will Bynum provided instant offense in 22 minutes on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 4-of-9 field goals and a game-high 10-of-12 free throws.

Detroit's energetic backup has now scored double-digit points in five of the past six games, though his limited playing time (19 minutes in March) makes him a hit-or-miss option in most leagues. The Pistons are within three games of the East's final playoff spot despite Sunday's loss, so Bynum should continue to get his chances as the regular season winds down.
Mar 9 - 9:19 PM

Will Bynum took advantage of garbage time against the Wolves on Friday during a 114-101 loss, finishing with 17 points, three boards, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

His usage has risen quite a bit lately and the Pistons have really grown fond of him becoming a bit of a sixth man. In his last five, Bynum averaged 13.4 points, 2.2 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 triples. He's worth a look for point guard-needy owners, but isn't quite getting enough minutes to be added in standard formats.
