#Pistons' Luke Kennard is OUT tonight against Philly. Blake Griffin (flu) and Bruce Brown (calf) are questionable. Christian Wood and Derrick Rose are probable. Merry Chrysler!— James Edwards III (@JLEdwardsIII) December 23, 2019
The Detroit Free Press’ Dana Gauruder had a piece on how Luke’s “bilateral knee soreness” is affecting his availability.
The Detroit News’ Rod Beard’s Monday column was all about how drastic the in-season changes will (or won’t!) be for the Pistons.
DBB’s own Ku Khahil had a great piece on the progress Bruce Brown Jr. is making this season, and what that progress is reminiscent of in Dwane Casey’s mind.
And, of course, listen to this week’s Detroit Bad Boys podcast, wherever you get your podcasts.
Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
