With 2013 firmly on track, Bynum has become an offensive force. No, friends, not Andrew Bynum, but Detroit’s Will Bynum. On Sunday, he had 15 points, 2 boards, 5 assists and a steal. When the Pistons played New York in London, Bynum kept his team in the game with 22 points, 2 rebounds, 4 dimes and a steal. The Saturday before that, he clawed his way to 13 points with 4 dishes. With enough minutes to continue to earn stats, Bynum is worth a look in your mid-depth leagues.
Ersan Ilyasova – I could have also led off with Ilyasova. People have asked me in comments if they should wait him out, and I said yes. Coach Jim Boylan had him back in the starting line up, and finally, finally, the wait has paid off. On Saturday, he went for 27 points (a point per minute), 14 rebounds, 4 assists and a block. He also shot 3 for 3 from behind the arc. We want to see more of this, obviously, but let’s take this as a good sign.
Andre Drummond – He had 16 points and 7 rebounds plus his usual block, but...

Andrew Bynum continues to report progress with his injured knees, but a significant hurdle awaits.
“I still haven’t done lateral movement, and that will be the biggest test,” the 76ers center said before Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs at the Wells Fargo Center. “Cutting is the last thing to do, and I think I am building up to that slowly...
Andrew Bynum continues to target a return from his injured knees after the All-Star break.
Still hoping for a return at the All-Star break?: “Yeah, that’s my hope. Obviously, again, I still haven’t done lateral movement. That’ll be the biggest test. Cutting is the last thing to do, and I’m building up to that slowly but surely.”
What feels comfortable?: “Not jumping. Just post moves. Left- and right-shoulder stuff. Turnaround jumpshots at the right shoulder...
PORTRAIT OF A MAN
It isn’t often that a bench player that is eighth in scoring on his team, and horribly overpaid, ends up as a tattoo. Actually, it isn’t all too often that any basketball player ends up in permanent skin ink on person. But Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons ended up being forever inked on some Pistons fans arm. I’m not quite sure why anyone would ever want to do this...
Once Joe Dumars traded Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson just a few games into the 2008 season, the Detroit Pistons franchise quickly fell apart. Trading their long-time franchise player for a massive expiring contract, they hoped to quickly rebuild, as Dumars believed their title window had closed. However, they used that cap space to overpay two role players, in Ben Gordon and...

According to Comcast SportsNet New England, Avery Bradley will try to participate in today's shootaround before the game against the Detroit Pistons, and subsequently see if he will be able to play through the pain of his rib injury that he sustained against the Hornets.
Avery Bradley's status for tonight's game against Detroit is still up in
the air, though the 6...

I am sort of confused. Just very odd and strange.
“I got to get some ink bro, I’m going to get the 8th leading scorer on the Pistons tatted on my arm. The ladies will love that.”

It's been more than a year since the Celtics beat the Pistons. On December 30th, 2011 Boston knocked off Detroit 96-85 in their first game at the Garden last season. Since that day the Pistons are 36-63 against all other teams in the NBA combined, but 4-0 vs. Boston. In fact, in those four games the Celtics have never even...

Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 7 Rebounds
Garnett had a decent game tonight, from the boxscore stats, but his defense was pretty bad. Detroit's frontcourt put a beating on him. But it is not entirely his fault. He has no legitimate froncourt partner to help him out when the going...
8 a.m. ET: Two straight losses have given the Celtics reason to worry, so it may help to get away for a while. A two-game road trip against teams mired near the bottom of the standings therefore could be the perfect antidote.
Of course, an opponent that was overmatched on paper managed to halt the Celtics’ six-game winning streak, so the Pistons (14-25) should not be taken lightly...
The Sixers are clearly struggling. Throughout the first month of the season the team did a pretty good job of hanging around and remaining relevant while they waited patiently for the increasingly-delayed return of their 'season-saver,' Andrew Bynum. At this point in the season however, halfway through the dog days of January, the wheels have fallen off, and the Sixers...
