Zaza Pachulia

  • Zaza Pachulia - C - Detroit Pistons

    Zaza Pachulia had a strong game on Saturday with seven points, 12 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes.

    Andre Drummond is currently dealing with a concussion so Pachulia may stay relevant for another game or two. He is nothing more than a plug-and-play or a DFS punt-play for now.

  • Zaza Pachulia - C - Detroit Pistons

    With Andre Drummond (nasal injury) only playing seven minutes, Zaza Pachulia picked up an unusual 28 minutes off the bench and finished Friday’s win over the Heat with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, two points and five personal fouls.

    Pachulia’s role is strictly as a low-minute big man and if Drummond has to miss any games, the Pistons are likely to just play small with Blake Griffin at center. We’re leaving him on the wire.

  • Andre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (nasal injury) got elbowed in the face on Friday and will not return. 

    Drummond had some blood after an elbow from James Johnson and there’s a possibility he’s put into the league’s Concussion Protocol. We should have an update after the game. Drummond finished the game with three rebounds and a block in seven minutes.

    Zaza Pachulia (right lower leg contusion) is available on Wednesday.

    Pachulia will return from an eight-game absence tonight. Khyri Thomas is inactive as a result and Jon Leuer should see less playing time going forward. The fantasy community is still reeling from the aftershocks here.

    Zaza Pachulia (right lower leg contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Pachulia has missed the last eight games with his leg injury, so this is bright news for the Pistons' frontcourt depth. He has been in and out of the lineup all season with multiple injuries to keep him benched. Pachulia is not on the fantasy radar in deep leagues.

    Zaza Pachulia (right lower leg contusion) is questionable for Monday's game with the Jazz but was able to go through morning shootaround.

    Pachulia isn't a fantasy option but would be a nice piece to have against a sizable Jazz frontcourt. It's been two weeks on the sidelines for Zaza, whose absence has allowed Jon Leuer to operate as the first big off the bench. The fantasy implications here are minimal.

    Zaza Pachulia (right lower leg contusion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Pachulia has been progressing in his rehab, and we'd guess he won't be out too much longer. With Blake Griffin (rest) also out, there could be a lot of minutes for Jon Leuer in this contest.

    Zaza Pachuliua (lower right leg contusion) will not play on Wednesday but continues to progress in his rehab.

    The Pistons haven't given many specifics on his ailment but it sounds like he'll be back before too long. Zaza's absence has meant that Jon Leuer has played backup center in what is clearly not a situation for fantasy owners to pay much attention to.

    Zaza Pachulia (lower right leg contusion) has been ruled out of Monday's game with the Spurs.

    Pachulia is basically out indefinitely at this point. He went for an MRI after getting hurt on Sunday, December 30 and hasn't returned to the practice court since.

    Zaza Pachulia (lower right leg contusion) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's game.

    Pachulia got hurt in Sunday's game and was sent for an MRI, though we've heard no updates on how that went or when he might be able to return. Luckily he's not a fantasy factor.

    Zaza Pachulia (leg) has been ruled out on Wednesday.

    No surprises here. Zaza might be looking at some more time on the sidelines considering he underwent an MRI. Jon Leuer looks like Detroit's backup center for the length of his absence. The fantasy impact is minimal.

    Zaza Pachulia (right leg) will not play on Tuesday and is likely to miss Wednesday's game as well.

    Pachulia underwent an MRI. His absence, however long it ends up being, will not impact fantasy leagues in the slightest. Jon Leuer should be Detroit's backup center in the meantime.

    Zaza Pachulia (right lower leg contusion) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Bucks.

    It's not a matchup that's calling for Zaza minutes, and he's not a fantasy option anyway. Look for Jon Leuer to play behind Andre Drummond while Pachulia is out.
