  • Killian Hayes: Let go by Detroit

    The Pistons are waiving Hayes on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    With several trade deadline additions made by Detroit, Hayes is being waived to create space on the roster. While the 2021 No. 7 overall pick has started in 31 of his 42 appearances this season, he has struggled mightily. Hayes averaged 6.9 points, 4.9 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 24.0 minutes per game while shooting 41.3 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from three-point range. Still just 22 years old, Hayes should still have some appeal in free agency as a developmental point guard.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Steps into starting role

    Hayes will start Wednesday at Sacramento, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Hayes will take the place of Cade Cunningham (knee) in the starting lineup for the first leg of a back-to-back set. While he's started 30 games this season with Detroit, Hayes had received DNP-CDs in three straight games, so he may not be locked into a massive workload despite his starting status.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Falls out of rotation

    Hayes (coach's decision) went unused off the bench in Wednesday's 128-121 loss to the Cavaliers.

    After making a spot start in place of Cade Cunningham (knee) for the second leg of a back-to-back set in Sunday's 120-104 win over the Thunder, Hayes dropped out of the rotation entirely while Cunningham made his return to the lineup Wednesday. Cunningham's recent return as well as Monte Morris' return from a long-term absence due to a quadricep strain has brought the Detroit backcourt back to full strength, leaving no room for Hayes to pick up minutes. Considering that Hayes is in the final year of his contract and has seemingly fallen out of favor in Detroit, the 2020 lottery pick could be a candidate to get moved elsewhere ahead of the Feb. 8 trade deadline.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Heads back to bench

    Hayes isn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Cavaliers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Cade Cunningham (knee) will reclaim his starting spot from Hayes on Wednesday. Hayes is averaging 2.9 points, 3.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 15.7 minutes across his last 10 appearances coming off the bench this season.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Officially starting Sunday

    Hayes will move into the starting lineup with Cade Cunningham (knee) ruled out, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Hayes returns to the starting lineup for the ninth time in Detroit's past 10 games, although he has averaged just 4.4 points and 7.4 assists in 25.4 minutes over that span. Cade Cunningham was a game-time scratch due to knee management, but no setback was reported.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Returns to bench

    Hayes isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game versus the Wizards, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Cade Cunningham will replace Hayes in the starting lineup Saturday. Hayes is averaging 2.4 points,4.8 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 16.6 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Struggles against Bucks

    Hayes amassed two points (1-2 FG), one rebound, five assists, one block and one steal across 16 minutes during Monday's 122-113 loss to the Bucks.

    Hayes has been unable to make the most of his opportunities while Cade Cunningham (knee) has been sidelined. Cunningham is nearing a return, and the same is true of Monte Morris (quadriceps). Given Hayes' struggles, his minutes could be in jeopardy when the Pistons get a little healthier.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Drops 12 dimes in Wednesday's loss

    Hayes produced four points (2-8 FG), four rebounds and 12 assists over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 130-108 loss to the Spurs.

    Making his second straight start in place of Cade Cunningham (knee), Hayes dished double-digit assists for the first time this season. The fourth-year guard continues to offer very little as a scorer though, and it's been over a month since Hayes provided double-digit points in a game, severely limiting his fantasy utility even while he's getting starter's minutes.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Drops seven dimes in start

    Hayes accumulated four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, seven assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 131-110 loss to the Kings.

    With Cade Cunningham (knee) sidelined, Hayes moved back into the starting lineup for the first time since Dec. 16. However, he struggled mightily. While he dished out at least seven assists for just the sixth time this season, Hayes committed a season-high six turnovers and failed to make an impact as a scorer. Cunningham is supposed to miss about a week, so Hayes should continue to see increased usage, though his fantasy upside remains limited.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Gets light run in return

    Hayes (illness) played 10 minutes and finished with two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds and one steal in Thursday's 128-122 overtime loss to the Celtics.

    Before missing each of the last four contests with an illness, Hayes had started eight consecutive games, but he returned to action as a bench player Thursday. Head coach Monty Williams hasn't outlined his plans for Hayes moving forward, but the fourth-year guard seems likely to remain on the bench for the foreseeable future while Jaden Ivey has shined (18.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists in 32.0 minutes per game) in his five outings since moving up to the top unit.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Will play Thursday

    Hayes (illness) is available to play Thursday against the Celtics.

    Hayes is set to return from a four-game absence, and his presence alongside Cade Cunningham will provide Detroit with another playmaking threat in the backcourt. Hayes has made 21 starts this season, averaging 10.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Probable for Thursday

    Hayes (illness) is probable for Thursday's game against the Celtics.

    While Hayes' probable designation for Thursday is encouraging, he was also initially deemed probable for Tuesday's game against the Nets before being downgraded to questionable and ultimately being ruled out. The 22-year-old has started in his last eight appearances, averaging 10.4 points, 4.4 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 26.3 minutes per game.

  • Pistons' Killian Hayes: Out Tuesday

    Hayes (illness) will not play Tuesday against Brooklyn.

    Hayes and Ausar Thompson are both battling illnesses Tuesday, but Thompson is on track to play. Jalen Duren (ankle) returns to the lineup as well, putting Detroit's expected rotation at full strength with the exception of Hayes.
