    As expected, John Henson will sit out of Wednesday's contest vs. the Sixers as he continues to deal with a sprained left ankle.

    Head coach Dwane Casey told the media on Tuesday that he expects Henson to miss some time with his most recent injury. Henson has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and has lost fantasy relevance this season with his most recent injury. Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya should continue to see more minutes while Henson is sidelined. Christian Wood will continue to be the stud in the Pistons' frontcourt moving forward.

    Coach Dwane Casey said that John Henson (left ankle sprain) will "miss some time" after being forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Knicks early.

    Henson has seen a steady role of late, but he becomes a cut candidate without a concrete timetable. In his absence, Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya should once again see added opportunities in the frontcourt.

    Sekou Doumbouya (right lower leg soreness) will face the Thunder on Wednesday.

    As expected, Doumbouya is healthy enough to take the floor. He is still a ways away from fantasy rosters as he is sitting outside of the top-300 so far this season.

  • Thon Maker
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Thon Maker (right ankle sprain) and Sekou Doumbouya (right leg soreness) are being listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    John Henson has been seeing an increase in minutes lately which has affected both Maker and Doumbouya's floor time. Maker was playing great a few weeks ago, so he is worth keeping an eye on to see if he can pick his play back up.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya played 20 minutes on Friday night, notching six points, three rebounds and a steal.

    Doumbouya has yet to earn the trust of the coaching staff, and while it's possible that he breaks out in silly season there's just not enough there to make him more than a luxury hold right now. The upside remains tantalizing and the minutes he does earn this year will benefit him down the line, but it's tough to project him as more than a deep-league asset over the next few weeks as things currently stand.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. is questionable for Friday's game against the Suns with left knee soreness.

    The knee held Brown out in Tuesday's game as well so we'll see if he can step back in and produce his underrated lines again. Rookie teammate Sekou Doumbouya is probable with a right calf strain.. Brown has held late-round value this year but we're waiting for Doumbouya to do something with his minutes. He isn't viable in fantasy leagues right now.

  • Sekou Doumbouya

    Sekou Doumbouya was largely unproductive in a team-high 34 minutes on Thursday, scoring just eight points to go with five rebounds and three assists.

    Doumbouya got a ton of run in this blowout loss to the Bucks and this could be foreshadowing for the upcoming games as the Pistons have nothing to play for. Unfortunately, he didn't produce much here but we have to assume he's going to get more looks. He should be a good volume producer if he gets playing time at this rate.

  • John Henson
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    John Henson has been traded to the Pistons along with Brandon Knight and a second round pick according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

    It's pretty shocking that a contending team couldn't top this offer from the Cavs for the league's best rebounder. Nevertheless, Henson joins a front court where he will compete with Christian Wood, Thon Maker, Markieff Morris and Sekou Doumbouya for minutes. Wood is the biggest winner in this deal, while Henson could emerge as a blocks specialist.

    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood saw 32 minutes of action off the bench and finished with 21 points (7-14 FG), eight rebounds, one assist and a steal on Wednesday.

    Wood continues to deliver when he gets the opportunity. Even though he came off the bench, he saw more more minutes than the starter, Sekou Doumbouya. Doumbouya only played 16 minutes and finished with five points, two rebounds, one assists and one steal.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris will miss Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Suns as he continues to recover from a body illness.

    Wednesday will mark Morris’ third straight absence. There has been a lot of speculation revolving around the veterans on the Pistons and Morris has drawn interest from several contenders. Continue to monitor the wire as the deadline approaches. Christian Wood, Sekou Doumbouya and Thon Maker will continue to see more minutes on Wednesday with Morris sidelined.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya may have shot 2-for-5 from deep on Monday, but he missed all 10 of his 2-point shots on his way to a six-point, seven-rebound, one-assist, two-steal performance in 26 minutes.

    It's a tough reminder that even though exciting young players like Doumbouya might be getting big minutes and usage, they can still be a detriment to fantasy teams. He had three turnovers in addition to the inefficiency in this one. Better days are certainly ahead for the relatively raw rookie. And it's not just rookies that can sink your field goal percentage as Reggie Jackson reminded us on Monday with his 1-for-16 shooting display.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya returned to the starting lineup on Sunday after getting a DNP-CD on Friday, notching 17 points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Dwane Casey said that Doumbouya sat on Friday just to give him time to take a breath, and it was clear that Doumbouya was starting to get a bit overwhelmed in the midst of his slump. It looked to have done the trick for one day at least, and though Christian Wood is still the better stash among Detroit frontcourt players, there's a not-insignificant chance that Doumbouya becomes a difference-maker down the stretch.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya was not used in Friday's game as the Raptors soundly beat the Pistons in Detroit.

    Coach Dwane Casey has been know to do this and unless an injury update pops up, we don't really know why he didn't play tonight. He was a hot pickup when Blake Griffin went down indefinitely, but his performances have not warranted fantasy ownership so far this season. He's sitting outside the top-300 on the season in 22 games.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (illness) is questionable to face the Raptors on Friday.

    Morris has been unable to play himself into standard league relevance even with the absence of Blake Griffin. Christian Wood appears to be the frontcourt add for the Pistons moving forward. Wood, Thon Maker and rookie Sekou Doumbouya could all see more playing time if Morris sits out while Wood has the highest fantasy value.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood turned 21 minutes off the bench into 20 points (5-8 FG, 10-11 FT), eight rebounds, an assist and two steals on Wednesday.

    Wood can put up strong numbers when he is on the court. It's just had to get a sense of how the Pistons want to use their players at this point. As an example, Sekou Doumbouya was the starter, but was scoreless in only eight minutes of action. It's hard to say how the season will go for either of these players at this point.
