Omoruyi recorded 19 points (6-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 4-7 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes during Sunday's 128-102 loss to Orlando.
Omoruyi scored double digits for the third straight game, picking up a few extra minutes after Marvin Bagley was forced from the game due to a neck injury. If Bagley is forced to miss time, Omoruyi could move into a high-minute starting role at power forward. With that said, Omoruyi doesn't offer a lot outside of some sporadic scoring and the occasional defensive stat.... See More ... See Less

Omoruyi signed a rest-of-season contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.

The second-year forward got his first start since Jan. 10 and posted his biggest scoring performance since Nov. 11, when he erupted for 22 points against the Raptors. Omoruyi has seen at least 23 minutes in four straight contests as the Pistons' frontcourt deals with multiple injuries, averaging a solid 13.0 points, 4.5 boards, 1.3 steals, 1.0 assists and 1.0 threes over that stretch, and with neither Marvin Bagley (ankle) nor Isaiah Stewart (shoulder) expected to return in the next couple games, the 26-year-old should continue to see elevated usage....

Omoruyi amassed 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 119-117 loss to Washington.
It's the first time the 26-year-old forward has scored in double digits in an NBA game since Dec. 16, when he was with the Thunder. Omoruyi is only on a 10-day contract with the Pistons right now, but if he continues to supply a steady hand in an injury-riddled frontcourt rotation, he could earn a regular job for the rest of the season....
