Detroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer (knee) will not play against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. What It Means: This will be Leuer's fifth consecutive missed game, meaning Stanley Johnson, Reggie Bullock and Aron Baynes will all see more run. Johnson carries the most fantasy appeal of the trio. numberFire's models project Johnson for 9.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.7 long ones in 34.7 minutes versus the Hawks.

Detroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer (knee) and shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) have both been listed as questionable to suit up against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. What It Means: Caldwell-Pope didn't practice on Tuesday while Leuer did, so it looks like Leuer is much more likely to suit up Wednesday. Leuer had started eight-straight games before suffering the injury, though coming off of a four-game absence he may be limited a bit even if he does return today. Our models project Leuer for 11.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.9 minutes of...

Detroit Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. What It Means: Caldwell-Pope has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 left shoulder sprain, so the guard will likely be out of action for a more than just Sunday. He has already missed one game with the injury. Stanley Johnson is the likely beneficiary with KCP and Jon Leuer being out as he has averaged 32.0 minutes the last two games. Johnson is projected for 7.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.1 steals on Sunday in 25.0 minutes by our...

Pistons making Jon Leuer (knee) a game-time decision for Hawks' tilt

Detroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer (knee) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks. What It Means: Leuer is tentatively expected to play after practicing and participating in shootaround. His return would likely send Tobias Harris back to the bench, while also cutting into Stanley Johnson's DFS value Wednesday night as a replacement for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder). Our models project Leuer for 11.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 3-pointers in 26.9 minutes of action if he does manage to suit up against Atlanta on...

Detroit rules out Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) versus Atlanta

Detroit Pistons shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) will not play against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. What It Means: Caldwell-Pope has already missed the previous two games and remains without a timetable for return. Reggie Bullock started on Sunday, but Stanley Johnson proved to be the better fantasy asset in 34 minutes off the bench. Jon Leuer (knee) is expected to return Wednesday night, however, which could slice into Johnson's value. KCP is averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.2 3-pointers in 33.6 minutes per game (40...

Pistons announce Tobias Harris as starter against Sacramento

Detroit Pistons forward Tobias Harris will return to the starting unit for Tuesday's game against the Sacramento Kings. What It Means: Harris will replace an ailing Jon Leuer (hip) for Detroit, but he may actually see a downtick in usage running with the first unit, so it doesn't change his fantasy outlook too much. He comes with a $6,100 price tag on FanDuel for Tuesday night's nine-game slate. numberFire's models project Harris for 17.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.9 3-pointers on Tuesday night. He currently ranks 72nd in the NBA this season with a 1.5...

Jon Leuer (knee) ruled out on Tuesday for Pistons

Detroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer (right knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Sacramento Kings. What It Means: This will be Leuer's first game on the sidelines after injuring his knee on Sunday. The results from his MRI are still unknown, so it's possible that the big man misses additional time. Tobias Harris is expected to start and makes for a solid play in a plus matchup. numberFire's models project Harris for 17.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.9 3-pointers on Tuesday night.

Pistons' Jon Leuer (knee) makes an early exit on Sunday

Detroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer (knee soreness) was forced to make an early exit from Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. What It Means: There are still no reports on the severity of the soreness, but he will have a day to rest before teh Pistons take on the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. If Leuer can't play, look for Tobias Harris to see increased minutes at power forward, while the thin front-court would likely open up some additional minutes for Boban Marjanovic. Leuer is averaging career-highs in all of points (10.9) rebounds (6.1) and assists (1.7) per...

Pistons' Aron Baynes (ankle) expected to miss Thursday's game

Detroit Pistons center Aron Baynes (ankle) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. What It Means: This will be the second straight game on the sidelines for Baynes. He is only averaging 15.7 minutes per game this season, but his absence opens up some potential playing time for Jon Leuer and Boban Marjanovic, who played 10 minutes with Baynes out on Tuesday. Our models account for Leuer being the primary beneficiary of this news, and we project him for 12.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 29.3 minutes of action tonight....
