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.

Jordan Bone has been recalled to the Pistons from the team's 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.

Derrick Walton Jr. will ink a 10-day deal with the Pistons, per Shams Charania.
Walton has made 23 appearances, including one start, this season. He was traded from the Clippers to the Hawks and immediately waived at the trade deadline. He'll serve as extra guard depth behind Derrick Rose, Bruce Brown and Svi Mykhailiuk.

The Clippers were, at the time, making room for Marcus Morris. We've yet to see how this shakes out, but one thing is for certain: Walton will likely not be fantasy relevant this season.

Derrick Walton Jr. (elbow) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Kings.
Walton was recalled from the G League on Wednesday but is now listed questionable with an elbow contusion. Patrick Beverley is probable for Thursday so it is unlikely Walton will see much playing time if he does play and he isn't a player to watch in standard leagues.

The Clippers have recalled Derrick Walton Jr. from the G League's Agua Caliente Clippers on Wednesday.
The team is scheduled to practice today so this is another opportunity for the rookie to get some reps. It’s also unclear whether Patrick Beverley, the team’s starting point guard, will be back tomorrow, so Walton offers some insurance depth.

The Clippers have called up Derrick Walton Jr and Terance Mann for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.
Both players have played sporadically for the Clippers this season with Walton making 22 appearances at 9.8 minutes per and their 2019 second round pick Mann making only 12 appearances at 10.0 minutes per. This call-up makes sense with Paul George and Moe Harkless both hurt but neither player is expected to play much.

Lou Williams (personal reasons) is being ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Kings.
The Clippers will be without there top-two point guards on Tuesday as Williams joins teammate Patrick Beverly (wrist) on the sidelines. There will be a ton of minutes and opportunity for Derrick Walton Jr. to step into. Walton makes for a viable streamer and punt play option in DFS.

During a six-game trip that concluded on Saturday, Derrick Walton Jr. averaged 17.6 minutes per game and played crunch-time minutes against the Wolves and the Bulls, long way from the 3.7 minutes he averaged in six appearances during the first 22 games.
While Walton’s opportunity can be traced to the mounting injuries in the backcourt, the Clippers’ roster lacks a pure point guard. Walton is steady with the ball and fits that role. He is still only a short-term solution for assists in deeper leagues with Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams battling minor injuries.
