Jalen Duren News
Detroit Pistons center Jalen Duren (ankle) is on track to return to the lineup Tuesday against Brooklyn. He's officially regarded as probable for the game after missing eight contests with a left ankle sprain. Duren makes a very welcome return as the Pistons try to avoid the longest single-season losing streak in NBA history. He'll help the team in rebounding and provide a good defensive presence. Duren was a double-double machine before getting injured with 12.6 points and 10.9 rebounds, and he notched 1.4 blocks across 14 outings. The Nets allow centers to shoot 57.5 percent, so Duran should enjoy a productive return, although he could be on a minutes restriction.
Detroit Pistons center Jalen Duren (ankle) is considered doubtful for the team's Saturday matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. The second-year big man has already missed seven games in a row due to this left ankle sprain and it seems like this will be his eighth. The Pistons are in the middle of a 25-game losing streak and Duren has missed 14 of those games so far. They could use him to finally break through for a win while fantasy managers could use him for his consistent double-doubles when he's finally on the court. In his place, the Pistons are likely to stick with Isaiah Stewart, Marvin Bagley III, and James Wiseman.
Detroit Pistons head coach Monty Williams said on Wednesday that center Jalen Duren (ankle) has resumed light court work, and the big man will begin a ramp-up process soon. Duren has missed two straight weeks covering six games after spraining his left ankle late in Dec. 8's meeting with the Memphis Grizzlies. The double-double machine is collecting 12.6 points on 63.0% field-goal shooting, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game in his second season. Duren missed seven games earlier this year due to ankle soreness prior to his latest absence, so the hapless 2-25 Pistons, losers of a staggering 24 in a row, are likely in no hurry to rush back their franchise center. Castoff former No. 2 overall picks Marvin Bagley III and James Wiseman will continue holding down the fort in Duren's stead, with the latter averaging 12.2 points on 79.4% field-goal shooting, 6.6 boards, and 1.0 swats in 21.5 minutes across his last five dates.
Detroit Pistons center Jalen Duren (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for the next two weeks. The big man has been dealing with ankle issues throughout the season. Duren was able to play 30 minutes during Wednesday's contest. However, it appears the 20-year-old suffered a left ankle sprain during that game. His absence is going to be a significant blow to the Pistons rotation. The expectation is that Marvin Bagley III and Isaiah Stewart will help fill the void while Duren is out. James Wiseman should be in the mix as well, but he's the least likely to pick up additional minutes with Duren sidelined.
