Anthony Tolliver (knee) is closer to returning than Stanley Johnson (shoulder) and both are expected to miss Wednesday’s game against the Mavs, but are day-to-day beyond that.
Tolliver’s return is more or less inconsequential to the rotation but when Johnson returns Marcus Morris’ late-round value will be tested. If you’re a Morris owner and you come across a hot low-to-mid level free agent you could be ahead of the curve making a drop of Morris, but Johnson is a rookie coming back to action during a critical span for the Pistons. It’s possible Stan Van Gundy decides to go with his vets.
