  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Sees 17 minutes off bench

    Wiseman closed with four points (2-4 FG), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 17 minutes during Monday's 113-111 loss to the Knicks.

    For the fourth game in a row, Wiseman was limited to minutes in the teens off the bench. He's struggled to make a real impact in Detroit, and it's hard to see that changing as long as Jalen Duren is healthy.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Surprises with 18 points

    Wiseman had 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 loss to the Lakers.

    Wiseman was an unexpected surprise considering Jalen Duren's form hold on the starting job. The duo split even minutes in the loss, but the metrics suggest that the increase is just a blip on the radar. The Pistons have little to play for, so we may see increased tinkering with the lineup after the All-Star break, and that could have a positive affect on Wiseman's totals.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Elevated role in blowout loss

    Wiseman finished with four points (2-3 FG), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 131-110 loss to the Kings.

    Wiseman played 20-plus minutes for the first time since Dec. 18. He's appeared in 15 of Detroit's last 16 games, averaging 7.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 17.8 minutes per game. However, barring an injury to Jalen Duren, Wiseman doesn't have much fantasy value.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Fails to score in 12 minutes

    Wiseman provided zero points (0-2 FG) and two rebounds across 12 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 loss to Brooklyn.

    Wiseman continues to offer minimal production in Detroit, failing to score in 12 minutes of playing time. After a brief period during which he at least put himself on the standard league radar, things have returned to normal. Given he is unlikely to be an every-night part of the rotation, there is no reason to consider him worthy of a roster spot.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Continues strong play off bench

    Wiseman totaled 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 26 minutes during Saturday's 146-114 loss to the Bucks.

    Wiseman led all Pistons bench players in scoring, rebounds and assists while setting a season-high mark with five dimes. It was his third straight game with at least 10 points, and Wiseman has reached the double-digit point total in only five contests this year. He has averaged 15.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists over his last three games and continues to benefit from multiple absences in Detroit's frontcourt, namely Jalen Duren (ankle).

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Scores season-high 20 points

    Wiseman finished with 20 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and one block across 28 minutes during Friday's 124-92 loss to the 76ers.

    The Pistons dropped their 22nd straight game Friday, so there wasn't much for the team to celebrate. However, Wiseman provided a silver lining with his best game of the campaign, leading the team with a season-high 20 points and 13 boards for his first double-double since the final game of last season. Wiseman hasn't been given substantial playing time this year, but his performance Friday may open the door to more opportunity, especially with Jalen Duren (ankle) out for an extended period and Marvin Bagley continuing to deal with a troublesome back.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Gets eight minutes in loss

    Wiseman registered four points (2-3FG) and four rebounds over eight minutes in Wednesday's 116-102 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Wiseman was a DNP in each of the Pistons' last two games, but he saw the floor Wednesday after Jalen Duren left with an apparent ankle injury. If Duren is forced to miss time, Wiseman and fellow big man Marvin Bagley figure to see an uptick in minutes alongside Isaiah Stewart.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Operates as primary backup

    Wiseman ended Monday's 126-107 loss to the Wizards with eight points (3-4 FG, 2-4 FT) and four rebounds over nine minutes.

    With Jalen Duren reclaiming his spot in the starting lineup, coach Monty Williams had a decision to make regarding his backup center. Marvin Bagley had clearly moved ahead of Wiseman to start the campaign, but the former didn't see any action Monday while the latter was solid in limited work. It's unclear if this was a permanent move, but either way, both Bagley and Wiseman won't have significant fantasy value as long as Duren is healthy.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Season-best performance

    Wiseman totaled 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 14 minutes during Tuesday's 126-120 loss to the Hawks.

    Wiseman posted a season-high 11 points while matching his most minutes played. The 22-year-old was needed to combat the size of Atlanta's frontcourt, especially with Jalen Duren (ankle) still out. Injury woes in Detroit have not led to relevant production from Wiseman, so he remains off most fantasy radars.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Held scoreless against Warriors

    Wiseman notched zero points (0-3 FG) and three rebounds in 11 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Warriors.

    Jalen Duren missed Monday's game with an ankle injury, but he's believed to be day-to-day. Wiseman is clearly out of favor in Detroit right now, as Marvin Bagley was given the bulk of Duren's minutes.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Will be available Monday

    Wiseman (finger) is available for Monday's matchup against the Thunder.

    As expected, Wiseman has been upgraded from probable to available and will suit up Monday. However, the 2020 first-round pick hasn't seen any playing time through Detroit's first three regular-season games. Isaiah Stewart (35.0 minutes per game), Jalen Duren (33.3) and Marvin Bagley (14.7) have dominated the Pistons' frontcourt minutes thus far.

  • Pistons' James Wiseman: Probable Monday

    Wiseman (finger) is probable for Monday's game against the Thunder due to a left digit sprain.

    It's unclear whether Wiseman is dealing with a finger or toe injury, but he'll likely be able to suit up against Oklahoma City. However, his status shouldn't impact the Pistons' rotation.
