The good news is that Andre Drummond nemesis Joel Embiid is out tonight with a sprained ankle.
The bad news is that All Hotford, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Josh Richardson are still in the lineup. Also bad, allegedly, is that the Pistons will be without Reggie Jackson, who is out with back tightness.
When: 7 p.m. EST

The Pistons are not one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, but it has a chance to steal a game against one of the Conference's best. They will need to hit some shots and slow down Ben Simmons to do so. And that means a bounce back Bruce Brown performance and continued domination from Andre and Luke and D. Rose.
Tim Frazier, Bruce Brown, Tony Snell, Markieff Morris, Andre Drummond
Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Hotford, Jonah Bolden
What can Tim Frazier do in the starting lineup?
I have committed to getting drunk and watching The Phantom Menace tonight. How much will I regret this decision?
