    Khyri Thomas was able to play in eight games for the Pistons after missing three months with right foot surgery.

    Thomas went under the knife on November 13, 2019 and returned with a G League outing on February 22, 2020. He was able to crack the rotation right before the NBA stopped but only saw more than 10 minutes of run in three games. The former second-round selection should get a fair shake at earning a full-time spot next year given Detroit's impending rebuild.

    Khyri Thomas (right foot surgery) is available for the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Thomas has been out a long time and will likely see just a few minutes. He's not on any fantasy radars right now.

    Khyri Thomas (right foot surgery) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    After some time in the G League, Thomas is listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup. The Pistons are playing most of their young players big minutes right now, so there's an outside chance that Thomas makes a splash down the stretch.

    Khyri Thomas (foot surgery) returned to action on Friday after missing a little over two months.

    Thomas played 22 minutes for the Pistons' G League affiliate, posting 27 points on 10-of-26 shooting with seven triples, seven rebounds, one assist and no turnovers. He should be back with main team soon but the 2018 second round pick can be ignored in fantasy circles.

    Khyri Thomas underwent foot surgery and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

    Thomas can begin rehab right away, but he will likely be out for two months or more. Even when healthy, Thomas has not been fantasy relevant.

    Khyri Thomas made his season debut vs. the Wizards on Monday, though he put up no stats in his two minutes.

    Thomas made it only the floor in garbage time of a loss to Washington while many regular Pistons guards were sitting out with injuries. He's safe to ignore in all fantasy leagues.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (right hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Nets.

    Rose was dealing with the injury prior to Friday's game but ended up playing to the tune of 23 points, seven assists and three steals. Saturday is the second game of a back-to-back so he may be given the day off but with Reggie Jackson out and Tim Frazier also listed as questionable, maybe Rose can give them some minutes. Langston Galloway and Bruce Brown might be looking at expanded roles in this one.

  • Joe Johnson
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons are waiving Joe Johnson, finalizing their roster for the 2019-2020 season.

    Johnson had joined the Pistons preseason roster on a non-guaranteed deal. This deal makes sense as the Pistons decided to use their last roster spots for Christian Wood guard Khryi Thomas. This was a short-lived return to the NBA for Johnson, and chances are we won't see him again.

    According to Keith Smith, a handful of teams who need help at point guard have reached out to the Pistons about acquiring Khyri Thomas.

    The Pistons are considering trading the young lead guard rather than having his contract take up space on their books for the next two years. He'd be better off in place with less point guard depth than the Pistons but it's unlikely he holds much fantasy value regardless.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    According to James L. Edwards III, the Pistons may give Svi Mykhailiuk "wing minutes in the second unit."

    Mykhailiuk will be competing in camp with Khyri Thomas and Langston Galloway, among others. Mykhailiuk only played 10 minutes per game last season but has some offensive upside.

    Khyri Thomas put up 26 points, six rebounds, two steals and seven 3-pointers in Friday's 96-80 win over Croatia at Summer League.

    Thomas hit 9-of-20 from the field and 7-of-14 from the field. The Pistons landed Thomas with the 38th pick in the 2018 draft, and though he only appeared in 26 games for Detroit last season they like his long-term 3-and-D potential. Thomas may be able to crack the rotation this season, and dynasty owners should keep an eye on the lengthy guard.

    Khyri Thomas and Svi Mykhailiuk have been assigned by the Pistons to the Grand Rapids Drive of the G League.

    Drive have 3 games left and sit one-half game behind Chicago for the division lead and the automatic playoff berth. Both players should be able to help them while also polishing their game instead of sitting on the Pistons bench.

    The Pistons have sent Khyri Thomas to their G-League affiliate.

    There are only two weeks left in the G-League's season and it seems the Pistons want to get Thomas some action before it ends. No fantasy implications here.
