Detroit Pistons Roster

Detroit Pistons forward Bojan Bogdanovic had another big scoring night as he led his team to a big win over the Dallas Mavericks. This marked his second game with 30 or more points and his 14th with 20 or more. Across 41 minutes of playing time, he finished with 30 points, four rebounds, four assists, and two steals on 10-for-14 shooting from the floor. He also knocked down five of his six threes. Bogdanovic has now moved up number 105 in fantasy value rankings.
Detroit Pistons forward Marvin Bagley III cashed in a quality performance in the team's overtime win versus the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night. He finished the game with 19 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, and one steal while shooting 7-for-10 from the floor and knocking down one of his two three-pointers. This was his third double-double over the last four games. He's starting to find a rhythm and he's now getting more minutes in the frontcourt over Saddiq Bey.
Detroit Pistons guard Jaden Ivey (knee) is regarded as questionable for Thursday's matchup against Dallas. He is dealing with a sore right knee and it's kept him out of three games. The 20-year-old is having a really nice rookie season, averaging 16.2 points per game with 4.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists. His absence has allowed Rodney McGruder to make a pair of starts and Isaiah Livers has started to play a much bigger role. However, neither player has impressed and fantasy managers should look elsewhere.
Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart knocked down a career-high five three-pointers in a losing effort against the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. This was his first game back after a seven-game absence with a toe injury. He finished the game with 19 points, five rebounds, one assist, and one block while shooting 6-for-13 from the floor and 5-for-9 from deep. The big man has been flashing his range a lot this season as he only has three games in which he didn't make at least one three. He's also shooting a career-high 36.5% in that department.
Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart (toe) is now listed as questionable to make his return from a seven-game absence. Originally he was given 2-to-3 weeks until he was re-evaluated. We're now in the middle of that range and he seems to be getting closer to making a return to the floor. If he does return on Tuesday, Jalen Duren and Marvin Bagley III will likely take a hit to their fantasy value. Bagley would be the more trustworthy fantasy option moving forward as he can slide into the power forward role on the starting five.
