Anthony Tolliver (broken nose) was fitted with a mask and practiced on Wednesday.

He should be good to go for Thursday's game in Atlanta, but he's not a fantasy option.
Dec 13 - 1:22 PM

Langston Galloway scored a season-high 18 points in Tuesday's loss to Denver, hitting 5-of-9 shots (all 3-pointers) with two boards in 22 minutes.

He checked in ahead of Stanley Johnson tonight who seems to be in the doghouse, but this game was an absolute blowout and there's no reason to add Galloway in most formats unless he does this again. He was averaging 10.2 minutes per game in December prior to this fluky line.
Dec 12 - 10:48 PM

Boban Marjanovic scored 14 points in 13 minutes against Denver on Tuesday, hitting 4-of-6 shots with five rebounds and two assists.

If we knew Boban was a lock for minutes in the high teens every night, we'd tell you to run to the wire to pick him up. He seems to always produce when called upon and embarrassed Darrell Arthur in the post tonight. The Pistons have lost seven straight, so keep an eye on Boban in case coach Stan Van Gundy wants to shake things up.
Dec 12 - 10:45 PM

Tobias Harris scored just two points on 0-of-7 shooting in Tuesday's blowout loss to Denver, adding eight rebounds, one assist and one steal.

After the game, coach Stan Van Gundy called out Harris, Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Avery Bradley after Detroit's seventh straight loss. "In my opinion, these are our four best players. They have to play better," SVG said. "If you want the money, want the credit when things go well, you have to have some accountability." SVG added that this loss was an "embarrassment, so fantasy owners should be on the lookout for any potential lineup changes. Harris was averaging 18.0 points in 35.2 minutes in his previous six games, so he should bounce back from this dud on Thursday vs. the Hawks.

Anthony Tolliver suffered a broken nose on Tuesday vs. Denver, finishing with three points, two assists, one steal and one triple in 14 minutes.

He'll now be fitted for a face mask, but he may not have to miss any time. If he does, Henry Ellenson is the obvious candidate to fill in for him with Jon Leuer (ankle) still out. Unless you're desperate for 3-pointers, Tolliver shouldn't be owned anyways.
Dec 12 - 10:26 PM

Reggie Bullock started on Tuesday vs. Denver and scored six points with three steals and one turnover in 22 minutes.

Stanley Johnson is apparently in the doghouse, but even if Bullock gets another chance in the first unit, it's hard to imagine him having any real fantasy value.
Dec 12 - 10:22 PM

Stanley Johnson came off the bench and played just 14 minutes vs. Denver on Tuesday with zero points, one rebound and one steal.

Five different players checked in before Johnson, so there's a good chance he's in the doghouse. He wasn't a reliable fantasy asset as a full-time starter and may not have played tonight if the score didn't get out of hand. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Dec 12 - 10:20 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) hit 2-of-10 shots and 2-of-2 free throws for six points, one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes.

His shot wasn't falling tonight and he was battling an illness, but his low minutes were a result of the lopsided score. Bradley has really struggled with his shot and is down to 33.7 percent from the field in December, but there is some buy-low appeal as Bradley was hitting 47.1 percent of his shots the month before.
Dec 12 - 10:16 PM

Reggie Bullock will replace Stanley Johnson in the Pistons starting lineup Tuesday night vs. the Nuggets.

Johnson has seen his playing time diminish this past week as Detroit looks to improve its offensive output. Over the Pistons last three games, Johnson averaged just 3.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 24.0 minutes. If you were holding onto to him in deeper leagues, it's safe to send Johnson to the wire.
Dec 12 - 6:50 PM

Reggie Bullock will replace Stanley Johnson in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

Through three games as a starter this season, Bullock owns meager averages of 4.3 points, 2.0 assists and 1.0 triple on 33.3 percent shooting, so whether he's starting or coming off the bench, he remains irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Johnson has actually played better as a reserve this season, so him moving to the second unit might not be such a bad thing.
Dec 12 - 6:48 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) is a go for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

Bradley skipped shootaround due to the illness, but he was never expected to miss this game. His shooting percentages have been all over the place this season, but maybe he'll be able to turn in a more efficient game with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets.
Dec 12 - 5:27 PM

Eric Moreland (illness) was absent from morning shootaround but is expected to play Tuesday vs. Denver.

Moreland is averaging just 1.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game backing up Andre Drummond this season.

Avery Bradley (illness) missed shootaround but does plan to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Bradley has been somewhat inconsistent this season but has played a bit better of late. Over the Pistons three games last week, Bradley averaged 19.0 points and 3.0 treys. However, Avery's rebounding numbers have been way down with the Pistons, hurting his overall fantasy value.
Dec 12 - 11:55 AM

Boban Marjanovic had two points, one assist and no other stats in five minutes of action on Sunday.

Boban chipped in 10 points with four boards in 14 minutes on Friday, but tonight's disappearance is par for the course. We'll let you know if he earns a reliable spot in the rotation, but we're not holding our breath.
Dec 10 - 8:06 PM

Reggie Jackson missed all nine of his field goals on Sunday, scoring two points on 2-of-2 free throws with three assists, two steals and one rebound in 19 minutes.

Jackson watched from the bench as Detroit made a late run with Ish Smith at the PG spot, and this was just a brutal night against an elite defense for R-Jax. He came in averaging 18.8 points in December and hasn't been held to single-digit points in consecutive games all season, however, and owners shouldn't overreact. He gets a terrific matchup vs. the visiting Nuggets on Tuesday.
