Sekou Doumbouya has missed the Pistons' first two Summer League games with a minor case of right hamstring tightness.
Doumbouya was one of the higher-upside picks available in the draft and the Pistons looked to get a bit lucky with him falling out of the lottery. Hopefully Doumbouya is able to take the court soon, as he would certainly be one of the most fun players to keep tabs on in Summer League.

Sekou Doumbouya will play in Summer League, per Dwane Casey.
Doumbouya was thought to be a top-10 talent but fell to the Pistons in Thursday's draft. He's exceedingly young — he made the birth date cutoff for the 2019 draft by nine days — and figures to be a long-term project for the Pistons. His upside is immense, however, and fans should look forward to watching him try his hand in Vegas against other top prospects.

The Pistons have selected Sekou Doumbouya with the 15th pick of the 2019 NBA Draft.
Doumbouya, who doesn’t turn 19 until December 23rd, has been making waves in the French Pro A league for Limoges CSP Elite as a versatile combo-forward. He’s a player who can parlay his athleticism into a potentially fantasy-viable 3-and-D package later on in his career. At this stage, he’s more of a project pick for the Pistons as he still needs to work on areas of his game like ball handling and shooting off the dribble. As far as his ceiling is concerned, he can be compared to a Pascal Siakam or an even bigger Trevor Ariza.
