Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) was not on the injury reports, but he will not play in Monday's game against the Grizzlies.
The Pistons didn't list him as inactive, but this could explain why Bruce Brown took Kykhailiuk's spot in the starting lineup. Check back with us to see his status for the Pistons' next game on Wednesday.

Bruce Brown Jr. (right thumb sprain) will start on Monday against the Grizzlies.
Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip straing) is available and will go to the bench for Brown, who has bounced back and forth between the starting lineup and the bench. He's coming off of a huge game, so keep an eye on him as the Pistons gear up for some possible trades.

Svi Mykhailiuk (right hip strain) is considered questionable for Monday's game.
Mykhailiuk has averaged 14.4 points over his last ten appearances while shooting 42.9 percent from deep. The Pistons have several injuries to guards, so Langston Galloway could be a nice value play especially if Svi cannot go.

January 31, 2020, 10:35 amLuke KennardSG, Detroit Pistons
James Edwards III of The Athletic reports that Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) has been made available in trade talks.
Kennard is a young-ish, deadeye shooter who comes in at a reasonabble $5.2 million salary for next year. The inclusion of Kennard into a possible blockbuster deal is intended to make the package more palatable for any team trying to trade for Andre Drummond, who is set to become a free agent this offseason after he declines his player option. Kennard's knee issues have been well documented this season and the emergence of Svi Mykhailiuk likely made the former Blue Devil expendable, but Detroit has a few more viable trade candidates ahead of him to consider moving, plus it would be difficult to move a player currently rehabbing from knee tendinitis. The Pistons have some of the more exciting second-half breakout candidates in the league in Svi, Christian Wood and Bruce Brown, so file this report away and be ready to pounce if and when a trade happens.

Tony Snell will miss Monday's game due to illness.
Snell doesn't hold much fantasy value in the first place. Svi Myhailiuk will see a few more minutes against the Cavs in all likelihood.

Sviatoslav Mykahiliuk scored 19 points in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, chipping in five rebounds, three assists, a steal and three three-pointers.
Mykahiliuk drew another start and was productive in tonight's game scoring 19 points. He has scored in double figures in 12 of his past 13 games in the month of January, averaging almost 14 points a game. Unsurprisingly he provides a great source of three-pointers but is also averaging nearly a steal a game. As long as he is starting he is worthy of a roster spot in most standard leagues.
January 25, 2020, 1:58 pmTony SnellSG, Detroit Pistons
Tony Snell (body;flu) will miss Saturday's game against the Nets.
Snell missed Friday's game with a undisclosed body injury but perhaps that was flu related. Although starting and playing in 26.4 minutes per game he is only useful as a three-point specialist in super-deep leagues. The Pistons starting lineup will look much different this game than last but Bruce Brown and Svi Mykhailiuk are expected to soak up even more minutes than usual with Reggie Jackson also out.
January 22, 2020, 9:57 pmReggie JacksonPG, Detroit Pistons
Reggie Jackson (lower back stress fracture) returned on Wednesday and scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting with four assists, two steals and three triples in 19 minutes off the bench.
Jackson was lights out in his return and is worth an add in 14-team leagues after this performance. Bruce Brown (illness) was out tonight so that helped Jackson's value, and this is a situation to watch closely over the next few games to see which of the Pistons' guards are getting the most minutes. Derrick Rose (22 points in 30 minutes on Wednesday) appears to be safe, but Bruce Brown and Svi Mykhailiuk (13 points in 29 minutes on Wednesday) could be impacted by Jackson's return.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk's shot abandoned him on Monday and he finished the game with 10 points and 2 triples on 4-of-13 shooting.
The popular waiver wire add was due for a bad game after going over 20 points in each of his last two games. The good news is that he still made it to the mid-20s in minutes despite the off night and there aren't many high-efficiency three-point specialists. He's a hold while Kennard is out, particularly if your team needs three-point shooting.
January 18, 2020, 10:20 pmSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Svi Mykhailiuk shot 9-of-11 from the field and 5-of-7 from deep on his way to scoring a career-high 25 points with three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes off the bench.
Mykhailiuk lit it up on Saturday and has been a top-100 player the past two weeks averaging 14.3 points and 3.5 threes in 30.8 minutes per game. Mykhailiuk is worth owning in standard leagues while he's on this hot streak.
January 15, 2020, 9:26 pmSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Sviatoslav Mykahiliuk came off the bench to drop 21 points (6-of-9 FG, 5-of-8 from deep) and rack up five assists to go with it on Wednesday night
Mykahiliuk has been on a bit of a hot streak and is a worthy streaming option for those in need of 3-pointers. Fellow second stringer Markieff Morris also came off the bench to score 23 points and pick up 2 boards, two assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers of his own.
January 13, 2020, 9:52 pmSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Svi Mykhailiuk scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on Monday.
Mykhailiuk has played well enough to warrant ownershp for those in need of triples, but outside of that he doesn't do much else. The Pistons are battered with injuries right now so there's a clear path for minutes and shots for Svi.
January 7, 2020, 10:05 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose was the Pistons' leading scorer with 24 points (9-of-21 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), and he added three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes in a road win over the Cavs on Tuesday.
Rose is having his best season in quite a while, and he's trending in the right direction, especially with the Pistons losing scorers quickly. He should have a good shot to stick in middle-round territory for the remainder of the season. Starting guards Svi Mykhailiuk and Bruce Brown contributed to the win with four 3-pointers from Svi and seven assists from Brown.
January 6, 2020, 12:54 amSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Svi Mykhailiuk had seven cash counters in 32 minutes off the bench a 106-99 loss to the Lakers on Sunday night.
Mykhailiuk scored 14 points, knocked down four triples and grabbed three steals. Langston Galloway added 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals on 5-of-7 shooting. Galloway and Mykhailiuk are both 3-point specialists in deeper formats, but Mykhailiuk is the preferred option of the two until Luke Kennard returns.
January 4, 2020, 11:37 pmSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Svi Mykhailiuk started and scored 14 points with four threes in 30 minutes on Saturday.
Mykhailiuk has scored at least 14 points in each of the past three games and has hit nine threes over that stretch. He can be used in deeper leagues for points and threes but will take a hit when Luke Kennard returns.
