  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Big double-double Sunday

    Wiseman finished Sunday's 123-95 loss to San Antonio with 21 points (8-17 FG, 5-7 FT), 17 rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 40 minutes.

    Making his second straight start and sixth since March 22, Wiseman set a season high in boards en route to his seventh double-double of 2023-24. The 23-year-old center has still not lived up to expectations as the second overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, but in his six starts over the final weeks of the season, he averaged 14.7 points and 10.5 rebounds in 33.0 minutes a contest while shooting 59.4 percent from the floor. Wiseman will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but it's not clear if he wants to return to Detroit, or if the Pistons intend to bring him back, with Jalen Duren entrenched as the team's starting center.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Double-double in win

    Wiseman registered 10 points (5-10 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 36 minutes during Friday's 107-89 win over the Mavericks.

    Wiseman's double-double marked his sixth of the season and fourth in the last 11 games. In that 11-game stretch, the 2020 No. 2 pick has averaged 7.5 minutes, 6.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 0.5 blocks across 23.4 minutes. He will look to close out the season strongly in Sunday's game against the Spurs.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Starting against Dallas

    Wiseman will start Friday's game against Dallas, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Jalen Duren is sitting out with back spasms, and it's unclear if he'll be available for the season finale on Sunday. In four starts this season, Wiseman holds averages of 14.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Wiseman is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

    Wiseman will return to his regular bench role with the return of Jalen Duren to the starting unit. Wiseman has averaged just 6.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game when deployed off the bench, meaning he shouldn't carry a big fantasy appeal for this contest.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Starting vs. Brooklyn

    Wiseman is in the starting lineup to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Wiseman will get the nod at center with Jalen Duren (ankle) sidelined. Given the lack of depth in the frontcourt, look for Wiseman to play heavy minutes while matching up with Nic Claxton on both ends of the court. Wiseman is averaging 17.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game in three starts this season.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Gets extended playing time Monday

    Wiseman supplied 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 28 minutes during Monday's 110-108 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Wiseman got an extended run Monday after Jalen Duren left the game in the first quarter due to a dislodged tooth. Wiseman took advantage of the opportunity and registered his sixth double-double of the season. Duren is trending toward playing Wednesday against the Hawks, so Wiseman's role could be diminished again.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Back to bench

    Wiseman isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    Jalen Duren will replace Wiseman in the starting five Wednesday after missing time with a back injury. Wiseman is averaging 7.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 blocks in 18.2 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

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

    Wiseman notched 14 points (7-11 FG), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes during Monday's 124-99 loss to the Knicks.

    The Pistons looked overmatched against the Knicks, but Wiseman delivered a decent performance Monday, posting his second consecutive double-double. Given the Pistons are out of contention, don't be surprised if Wiseman experiences an uptick in playing time and usage rate. He's averaging 31.7 minutes, 17.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game over his last three appearances.

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

    Wiseman accumulated 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 FT) and 11 rebounds over 27 minutes during Sunday's 114-101 loss to the Pelicans.

    Wiseman led all players in Sunday's contest in rebounds while ending as one of four Pistons with 15 or more points en route to posting the lone double-double of the game. Wiseman has hauled in 10 or more rebounds in four games this season, posting a double-double in three of those four contests. All three of Wiseman's double-double performances have taken place over the last 10 games.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Season-high 24 points Friday

    Wiseman produced 24 points (11-13 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds and four assists over 37 minutes during Friday's 129-102 loss to the Celtics.

    It was the best scoring performance of the season for Wiseman, who fell just short of his third double-double of 2023-24. The 22-year-old center was getting his first start of the season with Jalen Duren (back) a late scratch and Isaiah Stewart (hamstring) done for the season, and Wiseman seems set for a significant role in the frontcourt over the final weeks of the campaign. Through 16 games since the All-Star break, he's averaged 18.6 minutes a contest with 8.3 points, 6.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks while shooting 62.5 percent from the floor.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Starting sans Duren

    Wiseman will start Friday's game against the Celtics.

    Minutes after the Pistons released their starting lineup, they downgraded Jalen Duren (back) to out and submitted a new first five with Wiseman joining Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, Tosan Evbuomwan and Troy Brown. It'll be Wiseman's first start as a Piston, but when he's played at least 25 minutes (five games) this season, the 2020 No. 2 overall pick has averaged 15.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 0.8 blocks in 27.0 minutes.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Flashes versatility Monday

    Wiseman ended with 12 points (4-10 FG, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 26 minutes during Monday's 119-94 loss to Boston.

    Wiseman's offensive output wasn't overly impressive, but Monday marked his fourth game of the season with at least three assists, while also representing his fifth game with at least three steals-plus-blocks. The 22-year-old has plenty of time and tools to continue developing as a player, but hitting the aforementioned thresholds isn't a high bar, which is a factor in his limited fantasy appeal.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Impressive off bench Saturday

    Wiseman ended Saturday's 142-124 loss to the Mavericks with 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one block in 30 minutes.

    Wiseman logged a season-high mark in minutes, and the big man responded with the two-way ability that has characterized him since he entered the league, though this was just his second double-double of the campaign. His numbers were boosted by the fact that Jalen Duren was ejected in the second half, and Wiseman is expected to return to a bench role when the Pistons face the Hornets on Monday.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Sees 17 minutes off bench

    Wiseman closed with four points (2-4 FG), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 17 minutes during Monday's 113-111 loss to the Knicks.

    For the fourth game in a row, Wiseman was limited to minutes in the teens off the bench. He's struggled to make a real impact in Detroit, and it's hard to see that changing as long as Jalen Duren is healthy.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Surprises with 18 points

    Wiseman had 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 loss to the Lakers.

    Wiseman was an unexpected surprise considering Jalen Duren's form hold on the starting job. The duo split even minutes in the loss, but the metrics suggest that the increase is just a blip on the radar. The Pistons have little to play for, so we may see increased tinkering with the lineup after the All-Star break, and that could have a positive affect on Wiseman's totals.
