    Following up a zero-point performance, Tony Snell went for 17 points (6-for-11 FGs, 3-for-3 FTs), two rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes vs. the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Snell may be the Pistons starting small forward, but games like this will be rare. There are many better options to stream for 1.5 threes per game. Luke Kennard had a decent game with 11 points, three boards, three dimes and two treys in 23 minutes.

    Dwane Casey intends to have two or three bench staples but will fill the rest of the second unit situationally.

    Derrick Rose and Markieff Morris figure to be locks, with Luke Kennard in that group as well if he doesn't start. That leaves players like Christian Wood, Thon Maker, Svi Mykhailiuk, Tony Snell, Joe Johnson and rookie Sekou Doumbouya battling for limited spots. The Pistons bench doesn't figure to be a great source of fantasy value, but deep-league managers may be able to play the matchup game to a certain extent — at least until Casey finds a group he likes.

    The Pistons go to training camp next week with two dead-solid locks to be starters in Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond and two odds-on starters, in Reggie Jackson and Tony Snell.

    Snell got ran out of the rotation in the 2018-19 season in Milwaukee by coach Mike Budenholzer as he did not fit into the playing scheme. He averaged his second-lowest (after his rookie year) minutes per game but the Pistons have a gaping hole at the small forward position, which means that there are plenty of minutes to be had for a player like him. Snell has the opportunity to re-establish himself as a spot-up shooter next to Griffin and Drummond, while Piston’s coach Dwane Casey will try to utilize his ability to guard multiple positions. He will have to shoot better from behind the 3-point line but his 3-and-D presence will be a welcome sight for the Pistons after not having a small forward on the roster after the trade deadline last season.

    The Bucks have agreed to trade Tony Snell to the Pistons for Jon Leuer on Wednesday night.

    The Pistons will also receive the 30th pick in the first round of Thursday's draft. The Bucks made it clear that they were trying to trade Snell and Ersan Ilyasova, so they have accomplished half of their goal. The Bucks save $4 million in salary this season and no longer have Snell's $12 million on the books for the 2020-21 season.

    According to Marc Stein, the Bucks are looking to attach draft compensation in order to rid themselves of players like Tony Snell and Ersan Ilyasova.

    Milwaukee has big fish to fry if they want to keep the band together, and they'll need to clear up some salary to make it happen. Snell has two years left on his four-year, $46 million contract while Ilyasova has two more seasons at $7 million a pop, though the final year is not guaranteed. The latter will be far more coveted on the trade market given his skillset and more modest paycheck. The Bucks hold the 30th pick in the draft, though teams might hold out for higher future selections if they're going to throw Milwaukee a bone and help clear the cap sheet.

    Tony Snell (ankle) would be in an "emergency role" if he does play on Saturday according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

    Snell is still progressing according to the coach but he will not be rushed back after missing almost a month of action. The Bucks have routed the Pistons in each of the first two games in their series while Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown should not be affected by Snell's return just yet.

    Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) is not on the injury report for Saturday's Game 3 vs. the Pistons.

    Snell has been expected to miss Games 1 and 2 (he did) so it looks like his timetable to return is correct. He's an important part of what the Bucks do but his value isn't as apparent in fantasy. Snell also might be eased into it since he's been out of action for a while.

    Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) is expected to miss Games 1 and 2 of Milwaukee's first round matchup with the Pistons.

    The Bucks play on Sunday and Wednesday so Snell has almost a week to continue his recovery. He's an important auxiliary piece but doesn't look to have a huge impact even when he does return.

    Tony Snell (ankle) did not play in the Bucks' season finale loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

    He regressed once again and ended the season as a top-300 value as opposed to top-230 and top-160 value over the prior two seasons in 9-cat formats. He suited up for 74 contests and had a disappointing season. He should not be on fantasy radars heading into next season as his role will likely not expand much as long as he is on the Bucks.

    Tony Snell (ankle) will skip Wednesday's regular season finale.

    Snell hasn't played in a game since March 24, so this comes as no surprise. It remains to be seen if Snell will come back for the playoff roster, but his gritty defense off the bench could certainly be used.

    Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

    Snell hasn't played since March 24 and is likely done for the regular season. He only averaged 6.0 points per game for the Bucks this season so they should still be able to get things done in the playoffs without him.

    Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Friday’s context with the Nets.

    Snell will miss his fifth straight game and Pat Connaughton, George Hill and Sterling Brown will pick up the slack. Ersan Ilyasova (nasal fracture) is probable to play.

    Tony Snell (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's game against the Sixers.

    Snell will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday. Look for Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown and George Hill to pick up minutes in his absence with Connaughton and Brown providing the most value thus far.

    Tony Snell (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    This will be Snell's third straight missed game and right now Pat Connaughton is reaping the benefits. Try picking up Connaughton if you need some triples.
