    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.

    Derrick Rose has a Grade 2 right ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Rose's re-evaluation will come right at the start of a majority of league's fantasy playoffs. Owners who have the space to stash Rose should do so, but owners clawing for a playoff spot with no space, have to consider cutting ties. The Pistons are likely to err on the side of caution with Rose and fellow backcourt mate Luke Kennard (knee) is expected to return to the fray soon.

    Derrick Rose underwent an MRI on his sprained right ankle and it returned negative, but the Pistons will be cautious and the 2010-11 league MVP is expected to be reassessed in a few weeks.

    This is very bad news for Rose who is looking at a lengthy absence after sustaining a right ankle injury. Bruce Brown and Brandon Knight should get the point guard minutes as long as Rose remains sidelined..

    Derrick Rose left Sunday's game with a right ankle injury and is questionable to return.

    Bruce Brown is also out today, which means it could be up to Brandon Knight and Derrick Walton to handle all the PG minutes if Rose can't come back. He had nine points in nine minutes before going down, and we'll keep you posted on his condition as more news becomes available.

    Derrick Rose led the Pistons to a road win on Friday with 31 points on 15-of-24 from the field, as well as four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    The lack of other stats underlines the main issue with Rose as a fantasy asset but he's going unchecked for scoring responsibilities and should be a steady standard-league option as long as he can stay healthy. It's a late-middle round package that can quickly tumble if the efficiency wanes, but Rose should be good to go until the next drought.

    Derrick Rose had himself had a solid performance on Tuesday, posting 20 points (6-of-14 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), two rebounds, the five assists, one 3-pointer and two steals in 22 minutes.

    There's no chance that Rose is getting a buyout and considering the Pistons' place in the standings and the makeup of their current roster, he's got a nice path for value within the top-150. That said, there could be some maintenance days for rest down the road for him.

    Brian Windhorst of ESPN said on Monday that there’s “no chance” that the Pistons will consider buying out Derrick Rose’s contract this season.

    Rose is having a nice season with the Pistons averaging 18.0 points and 5.7 assists while shooting 48.6 percent from the field. Dwane Casey has been able to connect with the veteran guard who is under contract with the Pistons for next year as well. Windhorst added that the Lakers inquired for him at the trade deadline but it’s clear that he will be staying in Detroit. Rose is a must-own player in standard leagues even though there is the potential of a shutdown later in the season.

  • Bruce Brown

    Bruce Brown Jr. approached a triple-double on Thursday, finishing with 16 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in 32 minutes.

    Brown went off in garbage time against the Bucks in this one and played more minutes than starting guards Derrick Rose and Svi Mykhaliuk. The wide margin may have played a factor in Rose's 23 minutes. Rose had 12 points in those 23 minutes, while Mykhaliuk struggled and had seven points in 29 minutes. All three of these guards are kind of doing some musical chairs on a night-to-night basis but they may all be late-round plays in deep leagues with some upside. We'll have to monitor how this rotation shakes out especially when Luke Kennard is healthy.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Jackson reportedly has his sights set on joining the Clippers after reaching a buyout agreement with the Pistons on Tuesday.

    The Clippers were among the favorites to land Darren Collison before he decided to stay retired. Jackson has been playing well for fantasy teams lately, but this is obviously a massive blow to his fantasy value. Jackson will compete with Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet for guard minutes moving forward. Bruce Brown Jr., Svi Mykhailuk, Derrick Rose and possibly Luke Kennard (knee) all stand to benefit with additional minutes and usage with Jackson now gone. It is worth searching the waiver wire to see if any of the Pistons guards are on your league's waiver wire.

    Derrick Rose (adductor strain) returned to action on Wednesday, but probably was better off staying home as he laid brick after brick with his 1-of-13 shooting from the field for two points, four assists, one steal and one block.

    This was awful, but the good news is that the only way he can go is up (not absolutely true). Overall, Rose is a buy-low candidate as he can thrive in the post-Drummond era Pistons this season.

    Derrick Rose (adductor strain) and Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) will both play and come off the bench for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Magic.

    Both players will be returning to action for the last game before the All-Star break. They both have missed five consecutive games. With their return, Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown Jr. could lose some minutes and see their fantasy values decline. This will definitely be a situation to monitor after the All-Star break as the team is still waiting for the return of Luke Kennard. Kennard is expected to play sometime after the All-Star break. Rose is the only player out of the four that is worth starting in standard leagues.

    The Pistons are expected to get back Derrick Rose and Svi Mykhailiuk when they face the Magic on Wednesday.

    It will be interesting to see how the minutes get distributed tonight between Rose, Mykhailiuk, Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown Jr. It seems that the Pistons will continue to fight for the playoffs but Rose should be seen as a sell-high candidate for the rest of the season.

    Derrick Rose (adductor strain) is being listed as probable to return to action for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Rose returning before the All-Star break is great news for owners, as the team could have easily opted to give him the extended rest. It will be interesting the impact that Rose's return has on Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown Jr. Svi Mykhailuk is also probable for this one, while Luke Kennard remains out.
