It was reported prior to the Detroit Pistons game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday that Stanley Johnson was questionable. He did not play, but you may have hoped for an upgrade by the middle of the week. However, on Tuesday Keith Langlois reported that both Johnson and Anthony Tolliver are again likely out against the San Antonio Spurs:
Same story with @ATolliver44. First 4 days encouraging with right knee sprain, but plateaued since. SVG: "He's not close, either."— Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) March 1, 2016
Since the Spurs are 28-0 at home and have tremendous depth, the Pistons will need all the able bodies they can get. In that regard, this is unfortunate. At the same time, this gives Justin Harper and Reggie Bullock another game for the Pistons to see if their efficient three-point shooting and overall play is a fluke or something that can be counted on if necessary when Johnson and Tolliver return.
Now your thoughts.
