Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA

In Killian Hayes and Nerlens Noel, the Wolves will see two Pistons they didn’t when they lost to Detroit. Hayes was suspended for that game and Noel will get burn tonight with Duren and Stewart out.
I personally think that might be an upgrade. Look out for those two tonight. – 7:08 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Isaiah Livers being back would be a good depth lift in ordinary circumstances. Unfortunately, Nerlens is the only healthy center on the roster and Detroit may need Livers to do some stuff he usually isn’t asked to do – 7:07 PM

#Pistons guard Alec Burks enters tonight’s game fifth in 3-point percentage, which is pretty good considering the fact that he missed the first 12 games due to injury. pic.twitter.com/VvbV7q7WtL7:03 PM

Kyle Anderson is a late scratch from tonight’s game in Detroit with an illness. Austin Rivers will start in Anderson’s place, sliding Jaden McDaniels up to power forward. – 6:36 PM

the #Wolves haven’t lost a game since the #Pistons beat them on New Year’s Eve.
#Wolves coach Chris Finch: “A lot of immaturity came through in that last game with DET. We had some conversations around that & the guys responded to each other about it. So far, it’s been good.” – 6:33 PM

Isaiah Livers and Bojan Bogdanovic have been upgraded to available for tonight’s game vs. the #Timberwolves.
Livers hasn’t played since Dec. 1 after suffering a right shoulder injury against the #Mavs. pic.twitter.com/OPPnvg3I2e6:03 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Former NBA point guard Kevin Porter Sr., who played 190 games for the Pistons in two stints between 1975-79, suffered a stroke just before Christmas. His wife, Cleota Porter, launched a GoFundMe to help with his medical costs gofundme.com/f/rehabilitati…6:02 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Casey said Noel was a little rusty last night, but they’re going to lean on him with the center rotation depleted. “I’ve said from day one that 911, he’s going to be available. And he’s been, he’s been ready. You trust him as a pro who’s been there and seen that.” – 5:28 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2

Dwane Casey says Killian Hayes’ play has been a positive this season, along with Ivey and Duren’s growth: “There may be small positives, but they’re positives.” – 5:23 PM

James EdwardsIII @JL Edwards III

Dwane said Isaiah Stewart had some tests on so shoulder. He doesn’t expect it to be long lasting, but they’ll know better in the next day or two. – 5:22 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
#Pistons coach Dwane Casey says he doesn’t think Isaiah Stewart’s injury is going to be “long-lasting.” – 5:22 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic (left calf soreness) and Isaiah Livers (right shoulder sprain) have both been upgraded to probable. Livers hasn’t played since Dec. 1, and Bogey only missed one game.
Jalen Duren (right ankle soreness) and Isaiah Stewart (left shoulder soreness) are still out. – 3:29 PM

Our SSQ model says these were 4 of yesterday’s most unlikely buckets.

Bogdanovic and Livers are listed as probable for Detroit tonight against the Wolves. Ant Man is questionable.
Duren and Stew are still out. – 2:28 PM
