Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) is ruled out while Jon Leuer (knee) is listed as doubtful for the Pistons showdown against the Lakers on Sunday.
KCP will miss his third consecutive game as he has a strained left rotator cuff and Stanley Johnson or Darrun Hilliard will probably start in his place. Jon Leuer has been upgraded to doubtful after missing three consecutive games because of a right knee bone bruise. He was expected to miss the final four games of the road trip, and while a doubtful tag isn’t much of an upgrade, it means Leuer is on track to return when the Pistons return home for Wednesday’s contest. If Leuer can’t play vs. the Lakers on Sunday Reggie Bullock will start in his place.
