    Bruce Brown saw his workload jump to 28.2 mpg and the results largely followed, as Brown posted 8.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists over 58 games.

    Brown is capable of doing a little bit of everything and serves as a worthy fill-in whenever the usual stars are unavailable for the Pistons. Injuries hounded Blake Griffin and Luke Kennard, and the departure of Andre Drummond also opened up more chances for Brown to emerge. For a rebuilding franchise like the Pistons, Brown figures to be a regular piece of the rotation next season, and if he focuses on improving his shooting from deep (.344 on 1.7 3PTA) he could look like a 12-team asset if the Pistons fail to make offseason additions.

    Bruce Brown underwent surgery to repair a ligament in his thumb in late April, but he will be ready to play whenever the NBA suspension is lifted.

    Brown has had an up-and-down season overall, but with the Pistons having little incentive to push for victories, he is likely to have a sizeable role when play resumes. Brown has the ability to do a little bit of everything, and the Pistons have few goto options to dominate the offense. He has a decent shot improve on his numbers once he is able to return to the court.

    Bruce Brown will not suit up against the Sixers on Wednesday as he deals with a sprained right ankle.

    With Brown sidelined, look for Brandon Knight to slide into the starting lineup and run the offense. Brown's next opportunity to play will be on Saturday against the Sixers.

    Bruce Brown (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Sixers.

    Brown was able to play in both games over the weekend but apparently picked up an ankle injury along the way. He'll likely continue to start at one of the guard spots to close out the year, but if he is unable to go, Brandon Knight, Svi Mykhailuk, Langston Galloway and Tony Snell would pick up extra minutes and ballhandling responsibility.

    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Coach Dwane Casey said that Brandon Knight (right hamstring strain) is "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Knight, who missed Sunday's game, is likely to re-enter the starting lineup at PG. Knight was seeing a hefty workload prior to the missed game, but the Pistons have gotten back Bruce Brown Jr. and Jordan McRae has a few games under his belt, so we may see the ballhandling responsibilities be dispersed more. Nevertheless, Knight should still see a good amount of minutes and carry value until Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard can get back on the court.

    The Pistons own the fifth-worst record in the NBA and after having sold off several key veteran pieces on the trade deadline this year, the team is officially looking to rebuild.

    That’s no easy admission for Dwane Casey who arrived in Detroit as the NBA’s reigning coach of the year. But it’s one that he says he has come to terms with and something he’s fully committed to not even halfway through a five-year, $35 million contract he signed with the Pistons. The Pistons will be giving plenty of minutes to their young guys as the season progresses and Bruce Brown, Svi Mykhailiuk, Christian Wood and Sekou Doumbouya should all be in your radar in the upcoming weeks.

    Bruce Brown put up 16 points with four rebounds and six assists in a 96-84 loss to the Knicks on Sunday.

    Brown returned from a left knee contusion injury on Saturday and played just 25 minutes, but the Pistons did not hold him back on Sunday as he played 37 minutes. He has the potential to be the second-best fantasy player on the Pistons for the rest of the season, but he is still only worth a look in 14-plus team formats.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) returned from injury on Saturday and scored five points with five rebounds and seven assists in 25 minutes.

    Brown returned after a four-game absence and has an opportunity to play big minutes for the Pistons down the stretch. He had double-digit rebounds in four straight games before missing time with his injury and should be a good source of steals with some assists and out-of-position rebounds moving forward. He's worth a look in 14-team leagues but take into consideration that the Pistons only play two games next week.

    Bruce Brown Jr. has recovered from his left knee contusion and is no longer on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    It will still be interesting to see if Brown plays in both ends of the back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday. With Derrick Rose (ankle) and Luke Kennard (knee) out, he has a nice opportunity for value competing against Brandon Knight and Jordan McRae. He was swallowing rebounds before missing the last four games.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) was able to practice in full on Thursday.

    Brown has missed the last four games but appears on track for a return in the near future. The Pistons have a back-to-back that starts on Saturday and Brown can be considered questionable until we learn more. He will likely see an increase in value with the absence of Derrick Rose (ankle) and Luke Kennard (knee) but the backcourt did get a little bit more crowded yesterday with the addition of Jordan McRae.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Coach Dwane Casey said that Bruce Brown Jr. (knee) could be back for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Bruce Brown Jr. will be looking at added responsibility to run the Pistons offense with Derrick Rose missing at least the next two weeks. He is worth adding in leagues where he was recently dropped because of inujry.

    Bruce Brown (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

    Brown has been out during a key week in fantasy, making him a tough hold in 14-teamers or shallower. His knee soreness has kept on the sidelines for his third straight games now. He's a drop if your team needs a productive warm body.
