Well last night got even crazier. We knew the Magic planned on resting someone, and they weren’t kind enough to let us know until minutes after lock. As it turned out, everyone but Vucevic ended up getting the night off. Then Terry Stotts from the Parking Lot says he wasn’t sure he’d give his big three 30 minutes with the Kings resting everyone. Fortunately, he owned up to his word. Tonight, we have a five game slate with limited news as of this writing. As always, I’ll do my best to update everyone regarding news.
With that, let’s discuss the slate!
DET @ TOR
Pistons: Andre Drummond (Questionable)
Raptors: OG Anunoby (OUT)
Players to Target
Pistons: Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Jon Leuer (if Drummond is OUT), Ish Smith (if Reggie Jackson sits)
Raptors: Jonas Valanciunas (if Drummond is OUT)
After resting his entire starting five, minus Reggie Jackson who made his preseason debut, the Pistons should return to their normal starting crew. That is if Andre Drummond’s pink eye is gone. Preferably, I’d like to see Drummond sit another night, as Jon Leuer would open up a little more value. The Pistons have been an excellent team to target this preseason as Stan Van Gundy has given whoever his starters are plenty of run. While defensively, this isn’t the greatest matchup for most, it still presents some mid range value, likely to see upwards of 30 minutes. On the Raptors side, if Drummond sits for Detroit, I’d have more interest in Valanciunas, who would get the benefit of squaring up against Jon Leuer rather than Drummond’s elite rim protection.
