  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    In his fourth straight start, Sekou Doumbouya had 15 points (6-of-9 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), two rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes as the Pistons beat the Cavs 115-113 on Tuesday.

    Doumbouya has fared well considering that prior to this four-game stretch he had never played more than 10 minutes in an NBA game. But despite a pair of double-doubles, Doumbouya is a bit of a dart-throw as a relatively raw rookie. His role appears to be safe, though, with Blake Griffin (knee surgery) done for the season. Tony Snell actually performed better in a start than Doumbouya in providing 18 points (7-of-10 FGs), four boards, two dimes and four triples in 31 minutes.

    Bruce Brown played through an illness on Thursday and scored a team-high 15 points, also chipping in six assists and a steal in 30 minutes.

    Brown has shown time and time again that he's the only reliable guy in this shorthanded version of the Pistons backcourt (not counting Derrick Rose). Svi Mykhailiuk and Tony Snell each started and scored 14 points with two threes while Rose had 14 points and six dimes on 5-of-15 shooting. It's not pretty.

    Tony Snell started for the Pistons on Monday for an injured Blake Griffin (sore knee), but failed to capitalize on his window of opportunity, chipping in four points, two rebounds and a block in 28 minutes.

    Snell has not been fantasy-relevant and he's clearly unable to pop given the opportunity. Until he does (pop), leave him on the wire.

    Tony Snell (illness) is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Snell has started the past 14 games for the Pistons, so it's more of the same tonight. If you need threes and steals, look his way.

    Tony Snell (illness) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Snell is one of the worst fantasy players in recent memory. His availability only takes minutes away from Bruce Brown, who's shown he can be a fantasy contributor when given the volume. Treat this a reminder that Snell is somehow still a rotation player in the NBA, but keep him off your fantasy radars.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown was able to collect 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

    Brown just returned from a calf injury on Thursday, which may explain why he's still coming off the bench, but that should change with this performance. He's a strong defender and has experience playing point guard, which means that Tony Snell (three points in 19 minutes), Svi Mykhailiuk (five points in 14 minutes) and Tim Frazier (seven points, four assists in 22 minutes) should probably be sweating. Brown's a nice pickup in deep leagues given Detroit's lack of guard depth.

    Tony Snell scored 15 points in a start on Saturday with three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Snell has played 24 minutes or more in 5 straight games and has hit 11 threes over that stretch. He is a 3-point streamer and that is it.

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) returned to action for the Pistons on Wednesday but produced just three rebounds (0-for-2 shooting) in 20 minutes off the bench.

    Snell was a bit gunshy in his return from injury so we'll give him a pass. Once he's got his legs back, Snell should be worth streaming for 3-pointers once again.

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets but it is unclear if he will get back his starting role.

    Snell started all 13 games for the Pistons before this injury which has forced him to miss the past four contests. Langston Galloway has started and has given the Pistons another scoring threat in their starting lineup. Even if Snell starts, he doesn't have standard league relevance.

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    The more fantasy-friendly Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway will continue to see extra minutes if Snell can't play.

    The Pistons will be without Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) yet again on Monday.

    There's no fantasy impact here, as his absence will open the door for more intriguing players — Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway — to play.

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Bucks.

    This will be Snell's third straight game missed after leaving last Friday's game early. Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway will continue seeing extended run while Snell is sidelined.

    Tony Snell is out on Friday against the Hawks with a hip flexor strain.

    Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway will see minute bumps while Snell is absent. Galloway, in particular, has been getting substantial portions of late. He makes for a solid streaming option as long as Snell is out.

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Langston Galloway started the second half on Friday after Snell left early and may see himself in there again. Luke Kennard will also see a few extra minutes in smaller lineups.

    Toney Snell (hip flexor strain) was able to go through portions of Pistons practice on Tuesday.

    Snell's status for Wednesday's game against the Bulls wasn't updated, but that will likely come soon. Langston Galloway started the second half in place of Snell during Friday's game and may get the call again should Snell be unable to go.
