Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable vs. Bucks

Joseph (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks. The veteran point guard has missed the past three games due to a strained back. Assuming he sits out, Killian Hayes should continue seeing the bulk of minutes at point guard, and Carsen Edwards and Frank Jackson should see extra run as well.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Remains out

Joseph (back) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against Dallas. Joseph will miss a third straight game due to a strained back. As a veteran on a tanking team, it wouldn't be surprising if he misses all three of Detroit's remaining contests.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Unlikely to play Sunday

Joseph (back) is doubtful Sunday against the Pacers. A strained left lumbar spine is expected to keep the veteran shelved for a second straight contest. That should continue to open up more time for Killian Hayes, Frank Jackson and potentially Saben Lee.

Joseph (back) has been ruled out for Friday's contest against the Thunder. Joesph played through the back strain during the first half of the Pistons' back-to-back, but he'll be sidelined for the second half.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable with back strain

Joseph is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers due to a strained back. The questionable tag indicates that the injury isn't overly serious, but it's possible the bottom-feeding Pistons could end up holding out Joseph on the front end of a back-to-back. The veteran guard has started each of his last 32 appearances dating back to mid-January.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Won't play Monday

Joseph (rest) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against Portland. As expected, Joseph will get the night off after playing at least 30 minutes in four of the last five contests. In his absence, Killian Hayes (head) and Saben Lee figure to see increased roles against the Trail Blazers.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Questionable Monday

Joseph is questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers due to rest purposes. Joseph has played at least 30 minutes in four of the last five matchups, and he's averaged 9.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 29.2 minutes per game during that time. He hasn't missed a game since Jan. 11, but Killian Hayes (head) and Saben Lee should see increased usage if Joseph is held out.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Battles foul trouble in loss

Joseph accumulated nine points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 105-98 loss to the Heat. Joseph was limited due to foul trouble, logging just 18 minutes in the loss. For some reason, the Pistons continue to roll with Joseph in the starting lineup, to the detriment of some of their younger players. Despite starting, Joseph has been far from a must-add player in 12-team formats. Over the past month, he is putting up averages of just 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 0.6 steals. Clearly, managers should not be fooled by his role in the rotation.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Gets 15 points efficiently

Joseph posted 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 34 minutes Saturday in the Pistons' 113-104 loss to the Celtics. Though the 30-year-old has modest fantasy upside and doesn't necessarily align with the rebuilding Pistons' developmental timeline, he's nonetheless supplanted 2020 lottery pick Killian Hayes as the team's preferred option at point guard. After supplanting Hayes as the starter in mid-January, Joseph has continued to get the bulk of the playing time at the position, as he's now received at least 27 minutes in eight of Detroit's 11 February games.

Trade for Cory Joseph

Much has been said about the need to trade Schroeder and improve our outside shooting, as well as management's desire to get under cap. Schroeder has been putting up some nice numbers recently, but I feel it has been mostly taking advantage of the backup player of weak teams who have been decimated by injuries and his poor outside shooting, shoot first mentality and inability to create for teammates will be exposed against better teams - especially in the post season/

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Delivers quality all-around line

Joseph submitted 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 28 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 118-105 loss to the Timberwolves. Joseph came through with a quality stat line for those that streamed him in season-long leagues or used him in daily fantasy, but he shouldn't be counted on to replicate these numbers on a consistent basis even though the Pistons have seemingly committed to him as their starting point guard ahead of Killian Hayes. In his five games prior to Sunday, Joseph turned in much more modest averages of 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.8 three-pointers, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Scores team-high 18 points

Joseph supplied 18 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 111-101 loss to New Orleans. Joseph was efficient from the field en route to a team-high 18 points. Even with Killian Hayes (hip) back, the veteran guard continues to draw starts alongside Cade Cunningham, though the latter left Tuesday's contest with a hip injury. Over his last seven games (all starts), Joseph is averaging 11.7 points, 3.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 28.6 minutes. As long as he remains the starter, he should continue to churn out low-end fantasy production.

Pistons' Cory Joseph: Keeps starting gig in Hayes' return

Joseph turned in 18 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 117-111 loss to the Nuggets. Though Killian Hayes (hip) returned from a two-game absence, Joseph stuck in the starting five for the third game in a row and turned in some credible numbers. Joseph's stat line was propped up by some unsustainably hot shooting, however, and head coach Dwane Casey's decision to keep the veteran in the starting five may just have been designed for the Pistons to better manage Hayes' minutes coming off injury. Assuming the 11-35 Pistons' main focus for the second half of the season is developing younger players, Joseph will be a candidate to see a downsized role in the weeks to come.
