The Detroit Pistons have faced challenges with the absence of at least four rotation players in each game, sometimes reaching up to seven due to various injuries and illnesses.
Killian Hayes won’t be participating on Sunday due to a left shoulder sprain, and Isaiah Livers is also sidelined for the Raptors’ matchup tonight.
Hayes has been in a recent scoring downturn, posting three instances of single-digit scores while shooting 36.4 percent from the field during that period.
The shoulder injury could possibly explain this sudden dip in performance.
If Hayes is unable to play on Sunday, Jaden Ivey or Marcus Sasser could potentially take on more significant roles.
In the absence of Isaiah Livers tonight, his next chance to hit the court will come against the Denver Nuggets. The Pistons are still in pursuit of that elusive win to regain their momentum.
