    After a rough rookie season, Bruce Brown is showing signs of rounding his game into form, showing promise as a third point guard, while improving his ability to finish at the rim.

    Offensive efficiency has been one of Brown’s biggest problem in the early part of his career, as he shot 40 percent from the field and an ugly 25.8 on 3-pointers last season. He has improved marginally this year, shooting 41.4 percent from the field, but he has jumped to 36 percent from beyond the arc. Brown is also getting to the rim and finishing in transition, which has given him more confidence and let him ease into his game without having to force up 3-pointers. Dwane Casey seems determined to keep him in the starting unit and he deserves consideration due to his ability to deliver defensive stats and triples.

    Bruce Brown started on Saturday and scored nine points (4-of-8 from the field) with three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

    Brown couldn't match Friday's performance (14 points, seven assists and three steals in 33 minutes) but still brought the steals that we have come to expect from him. Brown is behind Langston Galloway in the rotation (13 points and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes on Saturday) but can be deployed as a steals streamer.

    Bruce Brown posted 14 points (6-for-7 shooting), seven asssits, four rebounds, three steals, two triples and a block in Friday's win over the Hawks.

    There is pretty much nothing to criticize from this performance from Brown. He tied for the team lead in minutes with 33 as this was one of his better fantasy games in a while. He remains an option in deeper leagues as a steals streamer.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) returned to action on Friday and produced 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, two 3s and thre assists in 26 minutes.

    Rose has been productive so far this season, turning top-90 value in 9-cat formats. He should see a ton of minutes manning the point for Detroit, so Bruce Brown (five points, seven assists, one rebound, one steal and one block) should see a dip in usage.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) handed out 11 assists on Tuesday while also providing three points and seven rebounds in 36 minutes.

    This game had some garbage time and plenty of missing Pistons, so quite a few performances are not sustainable. With Blake Griffin, Reggie Jackson and Derrick Rose sitting out tonight, Brown was able to handle the ball more than usual and showed off his point guard skills. Another player that benefitted from these circumstances was Christian Wood who went for 16 points, three boards, two steals, two blocks and a three in 26 minutes. Wood can produce well when given the minutes, but this is just the third time he's exceeded 20 minutes with the Pistons and Griffin's return is likely to make that even rarer.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) is being listed as available and will be the starting PG for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat.

    Brown is set to see heavy usage on Tuesday with Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose both out. Brown would make for a nice cheap DFS option and a streaming option if he was dropped in your league.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat.

    If Brown can give it a go he'll likely reenter the starting lineup and get all the minutes he can handle with Derrick Rose sidelined for Tuesday's game. If Brown can't go Tim Frazier will be the last man up and makes for a cheap DFS punt play option.

    Derrick Rose (right hamstring tightness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat.

    With Rose back on the sidelines, Bruce Brown Jr. (knee) has a chance to return to the starting lineup if he can get over his own injury issues. Luke Kennard has been streaking lately and could be in line for a massive usage spike on Tuesday.

    Bruce Brown picked up a right knee contusion, but is listed as probable on Monday versus the Timberwolves.

    Brown has been averaging 13.8 points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals and almost a block on a whopping 37 minutes per game since being named the starter. He hasn't been very efficient, but his production has carried over from the Summer League and he deserves as spot on your roster to see if he can hold onto the starting job. He's not the sexiest waiver add this week, but he's one of a handful that promises rest-of-season value.

    Bruce Brown made another start at point guard on Friday and came through with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.

    Brown shot 5-of-13 from the field but continues to check multiple boxes in a starting role. He hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire but does have 24 assists and eight steals over his four starts, with three double-digit scoring games too. There's probably room for that at the end of your bench in the 12-14-team range.

  • Tim Frazier
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Tim Frazier is doubtful to play against the Pacers on Friday as he is dealing with a shoulder injury.

    The Pistons are depleted of point guard depth as Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Reggie Jackson (back) have already been ruled out of this contest. Frazier might not even regain his starting role if he is able to suit up as the Pistons have deployed a backcourt of Luke Kennard and Bruce Brown Jr. the last couple of games. Don't expect Frazier to be back for this contest but continue to monitor the situation as we get closer to gametime.

    Derrick Rose (right hamstring strain) will miss his fourth straight game on Friday as the Pistons travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers.

    With Reggie Jackson (back) already ruled out, the Pistons will continue to roll with Bruce Brown Jr. at point guard while Luke Kennard will also continue to create on offense.

    Derrick Rose (hamstring) is still working to return from a hamstring injury and is listed as day-to-day.

    Rose missed the Pistons' last three games with a hamstring injury. The Pistons play their next game on Friday against the Pacers in Indiana. If he isn't able to suit up, Bruce Brown Jr. should once again handle PG duties. As long as Brown is running the offense, he deserves a spot on fantasy rosters in most formats.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard struggled Wednesday as he shot 4-for-12 from the field (1-for-7 from deep), but still managed to flirt with a triple-double as he recorded 12 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

    Kennard is a sell-high guy, considering his usage and scoring opportunities will surely take a hit upon Blake Griffin's return. His backcourt mate Bruce Brown was quiet as he put up nine points, three rebounds, one trey, six assists and one steal.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Tim Frazier (shoulder) are being ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. Knicks.

    Bruce Brown Jr. should once again handle PG duties for the depleted Pistons and should be streamed for however long it lasts. There is a possibility that Brown could hang on to the starting job even after Rose returns if coach Dwane Casey prefers Rose's scoring prowess off the bench. Stay tuned.
