Svi Mykhailiuk

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Svi Mykhailiuk scored 16 points on 4-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, three 3-pointers and two steals in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right ankle sprain) sat out tonight which allowed Mykhailiuk to get more usage. He hasn't played over 26 minutes in each of the past four games and is just a points and threes streamer in 14-team leagues with low upside.

    Bruce Brown (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Sixers.

    Brown was able to play in both games over the weekend but apparently picked up an ankle injury along the way. He'll likely continue to start at one of the guard spots to close out the year, but if he is unable to go, Brandon Knight, Svi Mykhailuk, Langston Galloway and Tony Snell would pick up extra minutes and ballhandling responsibility.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Dwane Casey said earlier on Tuesday that Brown could be back for this game, so this tag seems like it is closer to questionable than doubtful. If Brown can't go, Svi Mykhailuk, Langston Galloway and Jordan Bone should see more minutes and opportunities.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Dwane Casey told reporters on Tuesday that Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) will miss at least one more week.

    This is not the news that owners who grabbed Kennard off waivers recently were hoping for. Kennard recently said that he was pain-free and the team was initially targeting this week for a potential return, so maybe they are opting for more practice time. If Kennard can return early next week, there will be a sizable role for him right of the rip with Derrick Rose missing at least two more weeks with a Grade 2 ankle sprain. Bruce Brown, Svi Mykhailuk and Jordan Bone should see additional run and usage in the meantime.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    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
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    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.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Svi Mykhailuk (right hip strain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's contest against the Magic.

    Mykhailuk should insert himself right back into the guard/wing rotation with Derrick Rose, Bruce Brown Jr. and Reggie Jackson. It will be an interesting situation to monitor as we see how Dwane Casey might deploy his rotation in the second half of the season.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) practiced on Tuesday, but his availability for Wednesday's game against the Magic has yet to be determined.

    Mykhailiuk had put together a few weeks of solid, low-end standard league value, but Detroit's backcourt could be getting back a couple of pieces after the All-Star break. Every single guard in Detroit is on thin ice when it comes to their fantasy values, as it's hard to see five fantasy relevant players produce concurrently in this putrid offense.

    Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) will be held out of Monday's game.

    Mykhailiuk had been upgraded to questionable but will indeed miss the game. He has missed the last week of action and Langston Galloway will continue to fill in.

    Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game.

    Mykhailiuk has missed the last four games and was out on yesterday's report, so while he's clearly improving we also wouldn't want to count on him tonight. He had been on a nice run prior to getting hurt, with double digit points in all but two games since the start of January, and just one game with no 3-pointers.

    Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Hornets.

    Bruce Brown and Langston Galloway will continue to be the primary beneficiaries with Svi out.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (illness) and Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) have both been ruled out ahead of Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    The Pistons traded away Andre Drummond on Thursday, creating more opportunity in the frontcourt. However, it appears like Christian Wood will be the primary beneficiary. Mykhailiuk had some streaming appeal while the Pistons were dealing with some injuries but can now be safely dropped in standard leagues. Their next opportunity to play will come on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Svi Mykhailuk (right hip strain) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Suns.

    There is some trade interest circulating in Mykhailuk and his shooting prowess, so he could potentially be wearing a new uniform come Thursday. Bruce Brown will get another start and could find himself in a featured role for the second half of the season.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (left adductor strain) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Rose may have played his last game as a Piston with the trade deadline on Thursday. With Rose and Svi Mykhailuk both out for this one, look for Reggie Jackson and Bruce Brown to once again start in the backcourt.
