Pistons PG Peyton Siva didn't return to Tuesday's game after leaving with a sore hamstring.

The severity of the injury hasn't been determined, but it's a tough break for Siva as he attempts to impress new coach Stan Van Gundy and secure a backup role in Detroit. Will Bynum already presents a major hurdle to Siva's playing time, and the Pistons reportedly have interest in free agent PG Brian Roberts.

Coach Stan Van Gundy intimated Orlando Summer League would likely decide Peyton Siva's future with the Pistons.

His contract would be fully guaranteed on July 12 for next season. The Pistons now have four point guards with Brandon Jennings, Will Bynum, Siva and second-round pick Spencer Dinwiddie. Siva will need to have huge summer league to overcome his odds at this point.
Jun 28 - 10:16 AM

The Pistons have sent guard Peyton Siva to the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants of the D-League.

He's likely to be there for a couple of weeks to get some much needed playing time, while the Pistons will play just six games over the next 18 nights.

Pistons rookie Peyton Siva logged a career-high 14 minutes off the bench vs. Miami, finishing with two points, two rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.

His move up the rotation was sparked by the combined absence of Rodney Stuckey (knee), Chauncey Billups (knee) and Will Bynum (hamstring). That should say plenty about his lack of sustainable value.

Rookie PG Peyton Siva played under one minute during the Pistons' loss in L.A. on Sunday, despite the absence of both Chauncey Billups and Will Bynum.

Siva had a glimmer of promise to begin the season, when Brandon Jennings and Rodney Stuckey were both injured, but tonight's result neatly sums things up -- Siva is at the bitter end of Mo Cheeks' depth chart.

Rookie Peyton Siva could start at point guard in Detroit's season opener on Wednesday.

With Rodney Stuckey (thumb) and Brandon Jennings (oral surgery) potentially sidelined, coach Maurice Cheeks said he doesn't know who would start in the opener alongside the other likely backcourt starter, Chauncey Billups. Cheeks indicated that he'd prefer to keep Will Bynum in his role with the second unit, so Siva could very well end up starting Wednesday night if Stuckey and Jennings can't suit up. The rookie out of Louisville had his ups and downs in the preseason, but minutes are gold in fantasy basketball, so owners in deeper leagues may want to put Siva on their radars as a short-term fill-in.

With the Pistons backcourt gutted by injuries, rookie PG Peyton Siva racked up 12 points, four rebounds, seven assists, three steals and nine turnovers in 47 minutes.

The turnovers jump out and Siva showed some rookie warts throughout the game, but Detroit kept him out there with Will Bynum (food poisoning) joining Brandon Jennings (mouth) and Rodney Stuckey (finger) on the sidelines. Siva's role will dwindle and vanish as the Pistons' injured guards filter into the rotation.

Peyton Siva (calf) returned for the Pistons' short-handed backcourt in Saturday's victory, notching eight points with two assists and five turnovers in 15 minutes.

His return was well-timed given the absence of Brandon Jennings (wisdom teeth), Rodney Stuckey (finger), and Chauncey Billups (rest). The 6'0", 185 pound guard was the No. 56 pick of the 2013 draft and he's not currently on the fantasy radar.

Peyton Siva (calf) will not play against the Heat on Thursday night.

He's been dealing with a calf strain and has been out for over one week. Siva is unlikely to be in the rotation for his rookie season.

Peyton Siva (right calf) won't play in Tuesday's exhibition.

He strained his calf on Thursday and remains day-to-day. Though the injury isn't serious, the missed time makes it even more unlikely that he'll emerge as part of Detroit's deep backcourt rotation.

Peyton Siva (right calf) did not scrimmage with the team on Saturday.

The rookie is an afterthought in the Pistons rotation and might not even make the team. Siva was great at Louisville, but his lack of size is going to be a tough obstacle to overcome in the NBA.

Peyton Siva has a calf strain and missed some of Thursday's practice.

It's a minor issue for the NCAA champion point guard. Siva is buried on the depth chart and has no fantasy value.
Thu, Oct 3, 2013 01:40:00 PM

Pistons signed Peyton Siva, according to Louisville coach Rick Pitino.

Pitino was Siva's college coach with the Cardinals and the two had a close relationship last year on their title run. Siva is buried on the depth chart behind Brandon Jennings, Will Bynum and Chauncey Billups, so he won't see much playing time in his first year.

The Pistons' roster is at its limit of 15 players, which means Peyton Siva might find himself unsigned entering training camp.

The Pistons drafted Siva in the second round and he was expected to at least get a shot to make the roster. That was before the Pistons brought Chauncey Billups back into the fold, but GM Joe Dumars said the Pistons would still like to retain Siva's rights. A source close to the situation told the Detroit News that a decision could be reached next week.
