Bruce Brown is being sent down for a G-League stint.

Since Reggie Bullock got back to the court, Brown has fallen out of the rotation in Detroit, so he'll go down and get some experience in the G-League.

Khyri Thomas is being sent down for a G-League stint.

He's rarely a part of the rotation in Detroit, so he'll go down and get some reps in the G-League.

Blake Griffin filled it up during a 106-104 victory in Toronto on Wednesday, scoring 30 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks, five turnovers and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It was easily the biggest win of the season with the Pistons winning the fourth 29-16. Griffin wasn't a big part of the strong finish with only two points in the fourth, making just 1-of-5 in the frame. He was coming off two of his worst games of the year with just 8.0 points per game and he had made just 38.8% from the field in his previous games this month, so his fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. He'll have plenty of big lines the rest of the way.
Nov 14 - 10:45 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points with one rebound, six assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Pistons did sit him out for the vast majority of the second quarter, but there's no word of an injury and he played well in the second half. Jackson has become more of a jump shooter this year, but it hasn't worked out with his lowly 37 FG%.
Nov 14 - 10:41 PM

Reggie Bullock hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer to beat the Raptors, finishing with five points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes on Wednesday.

Coach Dwane Casey drew up a terrific ATO to get Bullock an easy look right at the rim. Before a breakout 23-point Sunday, Bullock has been struggling for basically the whole season, so most fantasy owners will want to see some consistency before making a move to grab him. He did show some upside last year, though.
Nov 14 - 10:40 PM

Langston Galloway scored 13 points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He closed this game out and he's kind of rolling over his last five, averaging 14.4 points, 4.4 boards, 2.2 dimes, 0.4 steals and a whopping 3.4 treys. The Pistons can't really get consistency out of their wings right now and Galloway hasn't had a bad game all month, so he has value for those looking for something at the end of their bench.

Luke Kennard (shoulder) will miss at least two more weeks.

The team's medical staff announced that they were "pleased with how his shoulder is responding," however, Kennard will go through another two weeks of rehab with intensification towards basketball activities. Glenn Robinson, Stanley Johnson, Langston Galloway and Reggie Bullock will continue to see extra minutes.
Nov 13 - 12:08 PM

Langston Galloway scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes off the bench.

Galloway has been trending up over the past five games with averages of 14.4 points, 3.2 triples, 4.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and just 0.8 turnovers per game on 49% shooting, and it'll be interesting to see just how long he can keep this up. He's been shooting 45.7% from beyond the arc during the hot streak, which isn't sustainable, but he is worth your attention in deep leagues while he's rolling.
Nov 11 - 6:52 PM

Andre Drummond posted a 23-point, 22-board double-double during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, adding three assists, three steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

As per usual, Drummond did an excellent job attacking the glass, racking up eight rebounds within the first quarter alone, which is essentially an entire game worth of boards from Myles Turner and Brook Lopez combined. He’s currently hauling in a career-high 16.6 rebounds per game and he has a good shot of leading the league in that category.
Nov 11 - 6:49 PM

Stanley Johnson couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 2-of-9 from the field on his way to four points, four rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes off the bench.

Johnson had played well in the previous two games with matchups against the Hawks and Magic, but Sunday's lame performance could be described as a regression to the mean. He's consistently been inconsistent throughout his career, and it looks like he's permanently lost his spot in the starting lineup. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:48 PM

Glenn Robinson III struggled in another start on Sunday, scoring five points on 2-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

Robinson had a tough time getting his shot to drop tonight, and he continues to alternate good games with bad ones. He’s really outplayed Stanley Johnson, so he should be able to retain his starting spot, but the inconsistency makes him an undesirable target in standard 12-team leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:47 PM

Reggie Bullock came through with a career-high 23 points during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, adding six 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

Bullock got off to a quick start in this one, drilling three triples within the first quarter of action, and he saw a ton of wide-open looks with the Charlotte doubling up Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond in the post. Bullock has been heating up over the past two games with averages of 18.0 points, 4.5 triples, 3.0 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.5 turnovers, so he’s worth a look in deep leagues for those seeking a boost in 3-pointers.
Nov 11 - 6:46 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting (5-of-6 from the line) Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

Jackson got off to a rough start in this one, connecting on just 3-of-9 of his shot attempts through the first half of action, but he was able to turn it around after halftime. He's good for some points, triples and assists, but the efficiency issues (36.4% shooting) and complete lack of defensive statistics make him a headache to own. He's really only worth rostering in deep leagues.
Nov 11 - 6:45 PM

Blake Griffin was ejected after picking up a Flagrant-2 foul on Sunday.

Griffin leaned into a screen on a driving Malik Monk, who was already airborne, so the Flagrant-2 was completely justified; although he shouldn't receive any further punishment. Griffin didn't play very well at all, finishing the game with just 10 points (4-of-16 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, one block and three turnovers in 30 minutes, making this his second lame game in a row. He'll look to bounce back on Wednesday vs. Toronto.
Nov 11 - 5:44 PM

The Pistons pushed back Luke Kennard's (shoulder) re-evaluation for his separated right shoulder until next week.

He is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, so now it sounds like he may not be back until after Thanksgiving. Langston Galloway has played well off the bench and Stanley Johnson has played well for two games in favorable matchups. Both are 16-team options with Johnson having more upside.
