  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Jordan McRae scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes off the bench in his debut for the Pistons on Wednesday.

    McRae saw action immediately for the Pistons who are dealing with a number of injuries. McRae is worth streaming in 16-team leagues while the Pistons are injured and is worth watching in shallower leagues to see how his role develops in Detroit.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya (right lower leg soreness) will face the Thunder on Wednesday.

    As expected, Doumbouya is healthy enough to take the floor. He is still a ways away from fantasy rosters as he is sitting outside of the top-300 so far this season.

  • Thon Maker
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Thon Maker (right foot sprain) has been upgraded to available ahead of Wednesday’s contest vs. the Thunder.

    Maker has seen his minutes decline over the last couple of weeks and can be left off standard league rosters. He could be worth a look in 18-team leagues.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Brandon Knight (right quad strain) has been upgraded to available ahead of Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Thunder.

    Knight should continue to see an increased role with Derrick Rose and Bruce Brown sidelined. He has hit 17 three-pointers in the last four games and can be streamed as a three-point specialist for now.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood will start in Wednesday’s game vs. the Thunder despite dealing with a right foot sprain.

    Wood was expected to play and this news confirms it. Wood has been producing excellent value since the Pistons traded away Andre Drummond, providing fourth round value during that span. He should be locked in across formats.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Jordan McRae is available to make his Pistons debut for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    McRae will be available to play within hours of signing with his new team. He is likely to see minutes on Wednesday as the Pistons are dealing with several injuries to their backcourt. He is worth watching in standard leagues while he should be looked at as a sneaky DFS tournament play.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Thunder.

    Brown will miss his fourth consecutive game which is unfortunate as he appeared to have a clear path to 30-plus minutes a night. Brandon Knight, who is questionable, should continue to see extended run with Brown and Derrick Rose sidelined.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Pistons have claimed Jordan McRae off of waivers on Wednesday.

    McRae agreed to a buyout with the Nuggets in the beginning of the week and will now help a depleted Pistons backcourt. McRae might see increased opportunity with the Pistons and could be worth a speculative-add.

  • Derrick Walton Jr.
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons have decided not to bring Derrick Walton Jr. back on another 10-day contract.

    The team just lost Derrick Rose, so it was expected that they would put Walton Jr. on another 10-day deal, though that will not be the case. Jordan Bone is likely to get a major opportunity at PG minutes, while Brandon Knight, Svi Mykhailuk and Bruce Brown Jr. chip in with ballhandling responsibilities.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Brandon Knight (right quad strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Knight practiced on Tuesday and looked likely to suit up. With Derrick Rose out and Bruce Brown Jr. questionable, Knight is going to once again be in line for a substantial role should he be able to suit up.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Dwane Casey said earlier on Tuesday that Brown could be back for this game, so this tag seems like it is closer to questionable than doubtful. If Brown can't go, Svi Mykhailuk, Langston Galloway and Jordan Bone should see more minutes and opportunities.

  • Thon Maker
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Thon Maker (right ankle sprain) and Sekou Doumbouya (right leg soreness) are being listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    John Henson has been seeing an increase in minutes lately which has affected both Maker and Doumbouya's floor time. Maker was playing great a few weeks ago, so he is worth keeping an eye on to see if he can pick his play back up.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood (right foot sprain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Wood has been a top-50/61 player over the past two weeks and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. Continue to fire up the big man with confidence.

  • Donta Hall
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons have signed Donta Hall to a second 10-day contract on Tuesday.

    Hall is not eligible to sign a third 10-day contract, so the team will have to decide on whether to sign him for the rest of the season or to let him go.

  • Jordan Bone
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Jordan Bone has been recalled to the Pistons from the teams' G League affiliate.

    Bone figures to get an opportunity to showcase his talents with the team losing Derrick Rose for the next couple of weeks at a minimum. He's worth a look in deeper leagues.
