Henry Ellenson suffered a broken nose in a G-League game on Saturday.
Ellenson has only appeared in one game for the Pistons this season and is not a fantasy factor.

November 14, 2018, 10:54 pmBlake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons
Blake Griffin put up 30 points on 13-of-22 shooting in a 106-104 win over the Raptors on Wednesday.
Blake has played phenomenal basketball this season and inside the top-35 in value right now. He is playing like the best player on the Pistons over Andre Drummond, who had 11 points and 14 rebounds on 5-of-15 shooting. However, both players should be started in every league and played with complete confidence.
November 14, 2018, 10:49 pmStanley Johnson - F - Detroit Pistons
Stanley Johnson managed to shoot a phenomenal 5-of-8 from the field for 12 points in 22 minutes in a win over the Raptors on Wednesday.
He outplayed Glenn Robinson III, who only managed seven points in 17 minutes. Langston Galloway added 13 points and also shot 5-of-8 from the field. None of the three are worth owning as the season will be filled with inconsistent play and random breakout performances.
November 14, 2018, 10:45 pmReggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons
Reggie Bullock hit a game-winner against the Raptors on Wednesday, but only had five points on 2-of-9 shooting.
It was not a pretty game for Bullock, but he did end up hitting a game-winner when it mattered. He is not inside the top-200 in value even though he is playing over 27 minutes per game this season. He is only a deep league asset.
November 13, 2018, 12:26 pmLuke Kennard - G - Detroit Pistons
Luke Kennard (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
His shoulder has responded well to treatment according to the medical staff, but we are looking at a minimum two week absence, possibly longer. Only deep dynasty leagues are still carrying the 22-year-old but in the meantime Langston Galloway and Glenn Robinson III will pick up the slack.

Blake Griffin was ejected with seven minutes left in Sunday's matchup with the Hornets after being assessed a flagrant two foul for a dangerous shoulder he delivered while Malik Monk was airborne.
You can view the play in the link below. Griffin finished the night with 10 points, six boards and five assists. He shouldn't be facing further disipline but if he does it won't be a big deal as the Pistons only play once next week.

November 11, 2018, 9:15 pmAndre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond scored 23 points with 22 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in the Pistons' 113-103 loss to the Hornets on Sunday.
Drummond has had a great year but his free throw shooting (56.5%) is below last year's 60 percent mark and his steals are down, so he's barely returning early round value. There's definitely room for regression but the big (projectable) thing is the dropoff in assists over last season, which is mostly due to the presence of Blake Griffin. Griffin took an early exit in this one due to a Flagrant-2 foul.
November 11, 2018, 9:12 pmReggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons
Reggie Bullock scored 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including six threes) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal over 34 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Hornets.
Bullock hasn't cracked the top-200 this season despite a sizable 27.4 mpg role. If he improves his 36.0 percent shooting and jumps up over the 30 mpg mark, he'll get on the radar in 12-14 team, 9-cat formats but that's about it.
November 11, 2018, 9:10 pmIsh Smith - G - Detroit Pistons
Ish Smith scored seven points on 3-of-12 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes off the bench on Sunday against the Hornets.
Smith isn't getting it done for standard league owners but hovering around the bottom of the top-200 he starts to be worth a look in 14-16 team formats.
November 10, 2018, 2:27 pmLuke Kennard - G - Detroit Pistons
Luke Kennard (right shoulder) will be re-evaluated next week, per Dwane Casey.
Kennard was initially diagnosed with an AC joint sprain and was supposed to be re-evaluated this week, but this report says he's dealing with a separated right shoulder. It's probably semantics, and either way we won't see Kennard on the court for another couple of weeks at least. Glenn Robinson III and Langston Galloway will pick up the slack in the meantime.

November 9, 2018, 10:48 pmAndre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond scored 23 points and added 11 rebounds, a steal and four blocks in 33 minutes during Friday's win over the Hawks.
Drummond went 10-of-15 from the field and just 3-of-7 from the line, but this is basically what you want out of the big man. He's rolling right along and is a safe bet for early-round value this year.
November 9, 2018, 10:47 pmReggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons
Reggie Bullock played 24 minutes on Friday night, going 5-of-9 from the field with three 3-pointers on the way to 13 points.
Bullock added three rebounds and four assists. He's gotten off to a slow start this season, and a few injuries haven't helped. It would've been unwise to expect Bullock to shoot .489 from the field again but he's definitely going to improve from his current .299 mark. Bullock should round into form as a decent 3-point option with back-end value in most formats.
November 9, 2018, 10:43 pmStanley Johnson - F - Detroit Pistons
Stanley Johnson posted 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Hawks.
Johnson went a stunning (for him) 8-of-16 from the field in 24 minutes. He outplayed starter Glenn Robinson III (12 points, two threes and a steal in 19 minutes) and might re-enter the starting five in the future. Johnson's big hurdle has always been shooting, and if you're tracking him in fantasy leagues the hope is that this game will give him more confidence moving forward. It wouldn't be our bet of choice, but you never know.
November 9, 2018, 10:41 pmLangston Galloway - G - Detroit Pistons
Langston Galloway went 5-of-9 from the 3-point line in Friday's road win, putting up 16 points in 24 minutes.
Galloway got more freedom than usual because this one was a blowout but he's been having a pretty decent year under Dwane Casey. He's picked it up after Luke Kennard went down with an injury and has emerged as a quality 3-point option. He'll be streaky but right now Galloway is playing his way into more work down the road.
November 9, 2018, 10:39 pmReggie Jackson - G - Detroit Pistons
Reggie Jackson played 21 minutes on Friday night, posting 10 points, two rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and a steal against the Hawks.
Garbage time was to blame for the low minute total tonight, though it's worth pointing out that Ish Smith was also solid with 10 points, three assists and two threes in 23 minutes while Jose Calderon logged 22 minutes and put up five points and four assists. None of Detroit's point guards are great fantasy options but Jackson and Smith are low-end options depending on what stats you're looking for.
