Pistons' Bojan Bogdanovic: Held in check Thursday
Bogdanovic closed Thursday's 130-122 win over Brooklyn with 11 points (4-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 32 minutes.
Bogdanovic scored at least 20 points in each of his last 10 appearances, but he was inefficient from the floor during Thursday's victory. Despite his underwhelming stat line, he saw his usual share of playing time, and his performance was likely just an anomaly given his recent string of success. Over nine outings in January, he's averaged 23.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 32.0 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Jalen Duren: Highly efficient in win
Duren ended Thursday's 130-122 win over the Nets with 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 27 minutes.
Duren only missed one shot in the contest, and that came with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter. The center went 3-of-3 from the field for eight points in the first half, adding four rebounds and an assist before going 4-of-5 over the final two quarters to finish third on the team with 17 points. Duren has now scored in double figures in five straight, though his seven rebounds on the night were the fewest he's recorded in six games this month.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Alec Burks: Goes for 20 points in win
Burks produced 20 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 130-122 victory over the Nets.
Burks took only four shots in the first half, making two of them, along with three of four free-throw attempts for eight points. He remained quiet through the third quarter before leading the Pistons with 10 points in the final period on 3-of-4 shooting. The shooting guard finished with 20 points for the first time this month, while the five boards were the most he's recorded in a contest since Dec. 31.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Saddiq Bey: Leads team in points, rebounds
Bey contributed 25 points (10-19 FG, 5-8 3Pt), nine rebounds and three assists over 32 minutes during Thursday's 130-122 win over the Nets.
Bey did most of his damage in the third quarter, knocking down six of his seven shot attempts for 15 points, including all three of his tries from beyond the arc. Outside of that, the small forward went just 4-of-12 for 11 points, though he did add five fourth-quarter rebounds to help the Pistons seal up a rare win on the road. Bey led the team in points (25), rebounds (nine) and three-pointers made (five) and has now broken the 20-point barrier in five of his last six.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Stewart: Not starting Thursday
Stewart will not start Thursday's game against the Nets, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Stewart will come off the bench for the first time this season after missing Monday's game with a shoulder injury. It seems as though the Pistons are switching things up, submitting a first five of Jaden Ivey, Alec Burks, Bojan Bogdanovic, Saddiq Bey and Jalen Duren. Although there have been no indications Stewart will be limited in any fashion, fantasy managers should keep an eye on Stewart's workload Thursday and moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Won't start Thursday
Livers (ankle) will come off the bench Thursday against the Nets, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Pistons' Alec Burks: Starting Thursday
Burks will join the first unit for Thursday's game against Brooklyn, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Burks will make his first start of the season Thursday after having logged just 18 minutes in Monday's game. He has shown the ability to score in bunches, reaching the 20-point threshold four times already this season despite averaging just 21.7 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Greenlit to play Thursday
Livers (ankle) will be available for Thursday's matchup in Brooklyn.
Livers should fill a sizable role for the Pistons but may be bound for the bench again Thursday, with Isaiah Stewart (shoulder) also receiving the go-ahead to retake the floor. Regardless of his starting status, Livers doesn't produce enough on a nightly basis to move the needle in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Stewart: Available Thursday
Stewart (shoulder) is available for Thursday's game against the Nets.
Stewart will return following a one-game absence and should be expected to rejoin the starters, as he hasn't come off the bench all season. This month, Stewart is averaging 11.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Lining up to play Thursday
Livers (ankle) is trending toward taking the floor Thursday against the Nets, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Initially questionable on the injury report, Livers looks to be doing well with his ankle and should play a sizable role again Thursday after a brief departure from Monday's game versus the Bucks. Livers has started two of the last three games, though the expected return of Isaiah Stewart (shoulder) may result in Livers returning to a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Stewart: Trending toward playing
Stewart (shoulder) is trending toward playing Thursday against the Nets, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Stewart sat out Monday's loss to the Bucks, but it appears it'll end up being a one-game absence. He's started every appearance this season and is averaging 11.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 30.5 minutes this month.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Isaiah Livers: Questionable against Nets
Livers is questionable for Thursday's game against Brooklyn due to a right ankle sprain.
Livers went to the locker room Monday against the Bucks but was able to return to the game and tallied nine points, a rebound, an assist and a steal in 22 minutes. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Thursday after being diagnosed with a right ankle sprain, but if he's available, thes size of his role will likely depend on whether Isaiah Stewart (shoulder) is cleared to return....

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Out with back soreness
Joseph has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup against Brooklyn due to low back soreness, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.
Joseph isn't part of Detroit's usual rotation and was recently dealing with a sore right knee, but he returned to action Monday and saw an expanded role with Killian Hayes (shoulder) sidelined, posting five points, seven assists and three rebounds in 18 minutes. However, the veteran point guard is now experiencing back pain and will be sidelined again, though Hayes will be available Thursday, which should make Joseph's absence inconsequential....

Stewart has been sidelined for four of the last six matchups due to his sore shoulder, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available Thursday. If he's ruled out again, Isaiah Livers (ankle), Kevin Knox and Nerlens Noel could continue to see increased playing time.... See More ... See Less
