Detroit Pistons Roster
- Eastern Central
- Little Caesars Arena
Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood has been on a tear since being inserted in the starting lineup, and he was fantastic once again against the 76ers on Wednesday. In a team-high 39 minutes of play, he scored 32 points on remarkable efficiency, as he shot 14-for-18 from the field and buried three of his four three-point attempts. Wood also tallied seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in the 106-124 loss for Detroit. If the NBA season continues at some point, Wood would be a beneficial addition to any roster, considering he is averaging 24.2 points and 9.8 rebounds over his last 10 outings.
Detroit Pistons forward Bruce Brown Jr. (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. He is dealing with a right ankle sprain that he suffered during Sunday's game. Brown has decent fantasy value if he's able to get on the court, but staying there has been tough for him lately. Brandon Knight would see increased playing time and usage if Brown is unable to play. Knight would be worth a look as a DFS option or streaming choice if he's given more playing time.
Detroit Pistons guard Luke Kennard (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. It appears that the Pistons are going to push Kennard's timetable back, but hopefully he'll be able to play again this season. There's no set timetable for his return, so Kennard belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats. Bruce Brown Jr. (knee) and Brandon Knight will see increased playing time. Knight offers a bit more fantasy upside than Brown.
Detroit Pistons center John Henson (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. He suffered a left ankle sprain on Sunday, so this could very well be a multiple game absence. Sekou Doumbouya and Thon Maker should be asked to play increased minutes without Henson available. Both players have similar upsides, but they are basically just deep league options.
Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight (hamstring) should be good to go for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, according to head coach Dwane Casey. He sat out of Saturday's game due to a right hamstring strain, but it appears to be a one game absence. Knight has been playing very well lately, so he should be worth looking at in most fantasy formats right now. It's unclear whether Knight or Bruce Brown Jr. will be given the start on Wednesday. Fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off for more information.
