  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Double-doubles in finale

    Wiseman ended with 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds and one block across 25 minutes during Sunday's 103-81 loss to Chicago.

    Wiseman notched his seventh double-double during the final game of the campaign. The 2020 first-round pick had an uptick in production following his move to Detroit and appears poised for a major role with the Pistons next season.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Questionable to return

    Wiseman is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Pacers due to a facial laceration, according to Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press.

    Wiseman played only two minutes before the injury. If he's unable to return, the Pistons will need to rely heavily on Jalen Duren and Marvin Bagley.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Returns to game

    Wiseman (face) returned to Tuesday's game versus Indiana, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.

    Despite exiting Tuesday's game in the first half with a facial laceration, he is good to go for the remainder of the game. He checked back into the contest with 8:35 left in the third quarter.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Shoots well from line in loss

    Wiseman posted 16 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 123-108 loss to the Nets.

    For the second game in a row, Pistons head coach Dwane Casey rolled out a supersized frontcourt featuring Wiseman and Jalen Duren, and though Wiseman was actually a team-best plus-6 during his time on the court, Detroit ultimately dropped its 11th straight contest and third in a row by a double-digit margin. Though Wiseman saved his night by shooting more efficiently at the free-throw line than usual, his rebound production once again suffered while playing next to Duren. Wiseman has pulled down 4.5 boards per game over his last two starts, compared to the 8.6 he averaged in his other 18 starts with Detroit when Duren either came off the bench or sat out due to injury.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Records double-double in loss

    Wiseman provided 14 points (7-9 FG) and 11 rebounds across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Thunder.

    Wiseman did most of his damage in the first half, scoring 12 of his points and grabbing seven of his boards in the first two quarters as the Pistons ultimately fought (unsuccessfully) to snap their 15-game losing streak. The third-year center now has five double-doubles in March, and his 77.8 percent shooting mark from the field marked his most efficient performance of the month.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Lifts offense in double-double

    Wiseman had 22 points (10-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and 13 rebounds across 33 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Heat.

    Wiseman picked up his third double-double in four games, leading Detroit in both points and rebounds. He was helped by Jalen Duren being limited to just nine minutes before exiting the contest with a head injury, as Wiseman and Duren had typically been part of a near-even split of the minutes at center when both have been healthy. If Duren can't gain clearance for the Pistons' next game Tuesday in Atlanta, Wiseman could once again be in store for 30-plus minutes, and likely elevated numbers to go along with it.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Top rebounder in double-double

    Wiseman racked up 12 points (4-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 117-97 loss to the Wizards.

    Wiseman was the lone player in Tuesday's game to record 10 or more rebounds en route to a double-double performance. He's tallied four double-doubles this season, including in three of his last four outings. The 2020 No. 2 overall pick has started 10 straight games for his new team and is averaging 13.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 26.6 minutes during that stretch.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Double-double in Monday's win

    Wiseman totaled 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks and one assist over 24 minutes during Monday's 117-97 win over the Pacers.

    The former Warrior led the Pistons in rebounding while supplying one of the team's three double-doubles as Detroit won for the first time in over a month. Wiseman has started nine straight games and delivered three double-doubles over that stretch, averaging 14.0 points, 9.2 boards and 1.3 blocks while shooting 61.1 percent from the floor as he finally begins to show some of the potential that made him the second overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Sets season high as top rebounder

    Wiseman had 16 points (8-12 FG), 13 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Thursday's 113-103 loss to the Hornets.

    Wiseman led all players in Thursday's game in rebounds en route to setting a season-high mark in a double-double performance. Wiseman, whose previous season high was 10 boards, has recorded a double-double twice this season.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Strong showing against Wizards

    Wiseman closed with 21 points (10-13 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 119-117 loss to Washington.

    Making his sixth straight start, Wiseman scored more than 20 points for the second time as a Piston while recording multiple blocks for the third straight game. The 21-year-old center is starting to flash the talent that made him the second overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and during his starting stint, he's averaging 12.7 points, 7.8 boards, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 assists while shooting 63.5 percent from the floor.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Swats three shots Monday

    Wiseman (knee) finished with 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and three blocks in 24 minutes in Monday's 110-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Tagged as questionable with knee soreness heading into Monday's contest, Wiseman suited up and took on what appeared to be a fairly standard workload as the Pistons' starting center. He's now started in each of the Pistons' last five games, playing between 20 and 29 minutes in those contests while averaging 11.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocks while shooting 59 percent from the field. That level of production is enough to keep Wiseman on the radar in 12-team leagues for the time being. However, he will be a candidate to lose some minutes whenever both Isaiah Stewart (hip) and Jalen Duren (ankle) are available again.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Available to play

    Wiseman (knee) will be available to play Monday against the Trail Blazers.

    Wiseman should see his minutes in the mid-20s Monday evening, and he'll look to bounce back from a tough 1-of-6 shooting performance with a much more advantageous matchup against Portland. He could be someone to think about rolling the dice on in deep leagues, although his play has been too inconsistent to depend on him in standard 12-team leagues.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Questionable Monday

    Wiseman (left knee soreness) is questionable for Monday's game versus Portland.

    Monday's game will be the first of a back-to-back set, so Detroit may opt to give Wiseman the night off with the Pistons playing for Ping Pong balls at this point. If Wiseman is forced to join Isaiah Stewart (hip) on the sidelines, then Marvin Bagley would get all the run he could handle and Isaiah Livers would see an uptick in minutes. Stay tuned.
