Aron Baynes' knee injury didn't limit him on Wednesday, as he came off the bench for 12 points (3-of-5 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs) with four rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.
The Pistons were back home after a five-game road trip, during which they went 2-3, and they came out of the gates red hot tonight with a 42-point first quarter. Baynes' knee injury is a non-issue, but his fantasy value is negligible while Andre Drummond is healthy. Jan 19 - 12:12 AM

Aron Baynes (knee) is a go for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

Baynes did not practice on Tuesday, but he was never expected to miss Wednesday's game. He doesn't have much value with Andre Drummond (knee) healthy, though.

Aron Baynes (knee) did not practice Tuesday but expected to be able to play Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

Baynes injury appears to be minor, but if he does miss time Boban Marjanovic would be the primary beneficiary.
Jan 17 - 1:57 PM

Aron Baynes started on Friday vs. the Jazz and scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting in 18 minutes.

He had zero rebounds but somehow managed to block four shots. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was out and the Pistons started Baynes to match up with Utah's frontcourt, so he will likely return to the bench against the Lakers on Sunday regardless of KCP's status.
Jan 14 - 1:33 AM

Aron Baynes will draw the start next to Andre Drummond on Friday vs. the Jazz.

Many were expecting Stanley Johnson to start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder), but it does make some sense to start Baynes to match up with Derrick Favors. Despite the starting label, Baynes is only worth a look in very deep leagues in the short term. Coach Stan Van Gundy said on Thursday that Boban Marjanovic will be his backup center going forward, so he should be in the rotation as well.
Jan 13 - 9:57 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) returned to action on Sunday with two points and one rebound in six minutes.

The Pistons got some unexpected rest when Saturday's game was postponed, but both team's schedules allowed for an immediate make-up date. Baynes barely saw the court tonight because Andre Drummond played a whopping 52 minutes in the double-OT win, and he faces a renewed challenge from Boban Marjanovic.
Jan 9 - 1:24 AM

Aron Baynes (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Baynes has missed the last three games with an ankle injury. During his absence, Boban Marjanovic served as the primary back for Andre Drummond and coach Stan Van Gundy said that he would get another opportunity to play the same role.
Jan 8 - 7:46 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) went through shootaround on Saturday and remains questionable to face the Blazers.

It's a good sign for Baynes to play tonight. With the late start in Portland, we likely won't get anything official on Baynes' status. If he's out, we should get another great look at Boban Marjanovic, who exploded on Thursday with 15 points and 19 rebounds.
Jan 7 - 2:50 PM

Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Portland.

Baynes has missed two straight due to the ankle sprain. In the Piston's previous game (Thursday night vs. Charlotte), Boban Marjanovic played extremely well, backing up Andre Drummond off the Detroit bench. Boban scored 15 points (shooting 3-of-4 from the floor and 9-of-11 from the free throw line) and grabbed 19 rebounds in just 22 minutes.
Jan 7 - 9:56 AM

Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play against the Hornets on Thursday.

That means we should get some Boban Marjanovic in the backup big role. If you want to get crazy and use Boban in DFS or as a stream, more power to you. He'll be risky, of course.
Jan 5 - 6:49 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) is not expected to play on Thursday vs. Charlotte.

He didn't practice on Wednesday or participate in the morning shootaround, so he will likely miss his second straight game. With Baynes on the shelf on Tuesday, Andre Drummond logged 35 minutes and Boban Marjanovic played 10 minutes off the bench, but it's possible coach Stan Van Gundy rolls with Jon Leuer as the backup center tonight based on the matchup.

Aron Baynes (left ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

Baynes sat out Tuesday's game, which resulted in Boban Marjanovic logging 10 minutes off the bench on his way to four points, four boards and two blocks. If Baynes can't give it a go Thursday vs. Charlotte, Marjanovic will again have the opportunity to log extended minutes off the bench.
Jan 4 - 1:44 PM

Aron Baynes (ankle) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

With Bayne on the sidelines, Jon Leuer and Andre Drummond will likely pick up a majority of his minutes, and we could see a brief appearance by Boban Marjanovic. For what it's worth, Baynes did look good while going through his pregame routine, so perhaps he can return to action Thursday vs. the Hornets.

Aron Baynes (left ankle) will be a game-time decision vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.

Baynes did not good while going through his pregame routine, so he's probably a bit closer to probable for tonight's game. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Jan 3 - 5:51 PM

Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

Baynes was seen wearing a walking boot after badly spraining his ankle on Saturday night, so it is surprising that he has a chance to play on Tuesday. If Baynes can't go, Jon Leuer and Andre Drummond would likely see an uptick in minutes.
