Tobias Harris scored 18 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two triples in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

If you bought low after his slump a couple weeks ago, you have to be feeling good. Harris shot 8-of-13 from the field in the win and is shooting a blistering 55.4 percent from the field over his last five with averages of 19.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.0 treys. The Pistons have won three straight games and get a date with the Magic on Sunday.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 23 points in Friday's 121-85 win over the Hawks, shooting 9-of-20 from the field in 30 minutes

KCP is from Georgia and also went to school there, so he put on a show in front of his family and friends. He added eight rebounds, one steal and five triples, and he's one of the hottest SGs in the East right now, averaging 18.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.0 triples on 45.3 percent shooting over his last five games.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Stanley Johnson is "definitely part of our long-term plan."

"I think the guy has a chance to be really, really good," Van Gundy said. In other words, Johnson is out of the rotation right now. Darrun Hilliard is ahead of Johnson right now and that may be the case for a while, especially with the Pistons playing good ball.

Henry Ellenson (sprained right ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hawks.

Ellenson is in danger of missing his eighth straight game on Friday, but should be on waivers in all fantasy leagues anyway.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looked great on Wednesday, posting 25 points, five rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes during a road win in Boston.

KCP made 10-of-17 shots with two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and just one turnover. In the past five days he's had games with 10 assists, seven assists, and then four assists tonight, a new wrinkle that he can hopefully sustain once Reggie Jackson returns to the starting lineup. KCP is proving himself to be more than a 3-point specialist, and he should be owned in all leagues.
Nov 30 - 10:37 PM

Marcus Morris had another strong game on Wednesday with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting, four rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Morris went through a very rough stretch earlier this month, during which he scored single-digit points in five out of eight games. He's since hit 10+ points in four straight, and is averaging 19.0 points in his past two, so don't hesitate to grab him if he's floating on your waiver wire.
Nov 30 - 10:36 PM

The Pistons finished their back-to-back set with a win in Boston on Wednesday, aided by Ish Smith's 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Smith sank 9-of-12 shots with zero turnovers in 36 minutes of action, a stellar performance that we're unlikely to see re-produced once Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) gets back on the court. Stan Van Gundy loves to play his starters heavy minutes, and Smith and Jackson aren't likely to share the court on a routine basis, so he'll be a cut candidate in the near future.
Nov 30 - 10:35 PM

Andre Drummond vacuumed up 17 rebounds to go along with 20 points, two assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes on Wednesday.

The Celtics have a -3.6 rebound differential, sixth-worst in the league, and Drummond made them pay tonight -- the Pistons finished with a 52-33 edge on the glass. He made 8-of-13 field goals and 4-of-7 free throws, thwarting a half-hearted attempt to hack him in the second half, and he's been everything owners hoped for on draft day.
Nov 30 - 10:34 PM

Henry Ellenson (sprained right ankle) didn't play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

Ellenson sat out Tuesday's game and it's unclear if his absence tonight was injury-related or a simple DNP-CD. We'll leave him on the injury report, but either way he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Nov 30 - 10:33 PM

Reggie Bullock (left knee) will undergo surgery on his torn meniscus and miss 2-4 months.

Ouch. Bullock is having a tough year with injuries after problems with his hip and back. He could have been in the rotation for the Pistons, especially with Stanley Johnson struggling this year. Bullock has no fantasy value right now.
Nov 30 - 5:07 PM

Aron Baynes hit 3-of-7 shots for eight points and eight rebounds in 22 minutes in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Before you get too excited, Baynes stepped in the game after Andre Drummond was ejected. This was only the second time in his last eight games that he has played over 18 minutes and attempted over four shots. He is expected to go back to his bench role in his next game against the Celtics.
Nov 29 - 10:05 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 6-of-14 shots for 18 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Caldwell-Pope was three assists and three rebounds shy of a triple-double and continues to shoot the ball well from beyond the arc. He made four 3-pointers on Tuesday and has drained 13 from beyond the arc in the last five games. He remains a solid contributor in 3-pointers, steals, and is averaging a career-high 2.7 assists per game this season. Fantasy owners should be content with his production thus far this season.
Nov 29 - 9:52 PM

Tobias Harris hit 9-of-12 shots for 24 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and one steal in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Harris led the team in scoring with 24 points and has now scored over 20 points in two consecutive games, just the second time this season that's happened. The Pistons head to Boston on Wednesday to face the Celtics, a team that Harris scored 19 points against a little over a week ago. He remains a consistent fantasy option, offering a safe floor. He's shooting lights out right now, hitting 54 percent of his shots over his last five games.
Nov 29 - 9:50 PM

Marcus Morris hit 8-of-18 shots for 18 points, four rebounds, and a steal in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Morris led the Pistons with 36 minutes and was second on the team with 18 points. After some subpar performances in recent games, he shot the ball well and drained two from beyond the arc. He faces the Celtics on Wednesday who are amongst the top four in fantasy points allowed to small forwards. His solidified role makes him a safe play most nights and could be deployed against Boston on Wednesday.
Nov 29 - 9:48 PM

Andre Drummond was assessed a Flagrant Two, and automatically ejected, after elbowing Roy Hibbert with 4:09 left in the second quarter on Tuesday night.

Deeply disappointing for his owners and those that played him in DFS, Drummond's night comes to an abrupt end. He finished with just three points (1-of-6 shooting) and six rebounds. The only bright side is that this was the first of four games in six nights for the Pistons. Seeing as he logged only 13 minutes on Tuesday, he should be rested for the subsequent contests this week.
