Hamidou Diallo: Handed walking papers
Diallo was waived by the Wizards on Saturday.
Diallo's time in Washington didn't last long, as he was signed to an Exhibit 10 deal earlier in the day. He'll either land with the Wizards' G League squad or look for work elsewhere with the 2023-24 season on the horizon.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Out long term with ankle sprain
Detroit announced Tuesday that Diallo has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 right ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Diallo departed in the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to the Trail Blazers due to the injury and was quickly ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards before the MRI revealed that he'll be sidelined for a long-term basis. Given that Diallo won't be re-evaluated until late March at the earliest, he seems unlikely to get back on the court before the Pistons' season comes to a close April 9. Diallo, who is set to become a free agent this offseason, will likely finish the campaign with averages of 9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 17.8 minutes per game across 56 appearances....

Pistons' Hamidou Diallo: Most likely done for season
Pistons head coach Dwane Casey acknowledged Tuesday that Diallo (ankle) likely won't be available to play again this season by the time he's re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Even if Diallo's Grade 2 right ankle sprain checks out better than expected when he gets re-examined in early April, the 15-51 Pistons don't have any incentive to rush him back on the court before their season comes to an end April 9. The 24-year-old Diallo will finish his fifth NBA season with averages of 9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.9 steals in 17.8 minutes per game while shooting a career-high 57.3 percent from the field and a career-worst 58.8 percent from the free-throw line across 56 appearances. Diallo is scheduled to become a free agent this summer.... See More ... See Less

It's his best scoring performance since he popped for 19 against the Pelicans on Jan. 13, and Diallo's seven boards were also his best effort on the glass since that game. The fifth-year wing's production and court time haven't been consistent lately.

Diallo is getting consistent run lately due to all of Detroit's injuries, seeing double-digit minutes in 10 straight games, and he's responded by averaging 10.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assists while shooting a stunning 63.6 percent from the floor....
