Henry Ellenson Headshot

Ellenson was recalled from the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive on Sunday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Ellenson will travel with the Pistons to New York in advance of Monday's game against the Knicks, but he's not a safe bet to be active for that contest with Detroit not expected to be missing any of their regular rotation options. The rookie first-round pick has made just 14 appearances with the Pistons this season, with his most recent one coming all the way back on Jan. 18.

Al-Farouq Aminu Headshot

Aminu submitted eight points (4-5 FG, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and two steals over 27 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 victory over the Timberwolves.

Aminu provided a solid scoring output for the second straight game following a stretch in which he'd scored between one and three points in four out of five contests. The seven-year veteran continued his strong work on the boards as well, as he's now brought down at least six rebounds in eight of the last nine contests. Even though his usage on offense fluctuates, Aminu's strong presence on the glass continues to render him a fantasy-viable option in deeper formats.
9:59 am (EST)
Evan Turner Headshot

Turner tallied eight points (4-5 FG), two rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 win over the Timberwolves.

Turner turned in another solid outing and once again played over 20 minutes as he continues to work back up to speed following his extended layoff due to a hand injury. After shooting just 4-for-21 over the first three games of his return, Turner has now posted a 70 percent success rate (7-for-10) from the field over the last two contests while averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists. With Moe Harkless continue to struggle with the first unit, a move back to the starting five for Turner could be forthcoming as the Blazers continue their push for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
9:55 am (EST)
Allen Crabbe Headshot

Crabbe posted 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and two blocks over 21 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 win over the Timberwolves.

Crabbe is enjoying a productive stretch as March winds down, as he's now tallied double-digit scoring in five of the last six games. The fourth-year pro has shot 50 percent or better in four contests during that span as well and has seen 21 minutes for more in 12 of 13 March games. With his spot in the backcourt rotation secure, Crabbe serves as a viable option for those looking for some help in the area of scoring, three-pointers and shooting percentage at this stage of the season.
9:51 am (EST)
Jusuf Nurkic Headshot

Nurkic pitched in with 14 points (7-14 FG, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one block over 23 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 win over the Timberwolves.

Nurkic didn't need much playing time to churn out another impressive stat line, as he rattled off his sixth straight double-digit scoring effort. The third-year pro was highly aggressive when on the court, with his 14 shot attempts in just 23 minutes leading to his highest attempts-to-minutes ratio since joining the Blazers. Nurkic fell just short of a fourth straight double-double as well but has now hauled in between nine and 14 rebounds in six consecutive contests.
9:45 am (EST)
Damian Lillard Headshot

Lillard posted 21 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, six rebounds and three steals over 29 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 victory over the Timberwolves.

Lillard may have played second fiddle offensively to backcourt mate C.J. McCollum, but he provided better all-around production and set up the latter for some of his scoring opportunities as well. The All-Star's point total was actually his second lowest of March, but his hot hand from the field continued, as Lillard has now shot 50 percent or better from the field in six straight games while also accomplishing the feat from three-point range in four of the last five contests. He continues to be an effective ball distributor as well, as he's dished out five or more dimes in five straight.
9:39 am (EST)
C.J. McCollum Headshot

McCollum registered 32 points (11-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 29 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 win over the Timberwolves.

McCollum was lights out with his shot, posting success rates of 84.6 percent from the floor and 80 percent from three-point range. Following an eight-point outlier against the Pelicans on March 14, McCollum has bounced back to hit or eclipse the 20-point mark in five of the following six games while shooting 50 percent or better in four of those contests. He's enjoying his best shooting month of the campaign overall, with both his 51.1 percent mark from the field and 49.1 percent figure from behind the arc in March serving as season-best figures.
9:34 am (EST)
Shabazz Muhammad Headshot

Muhammad contributed 13 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and two rebounds over 20 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 loss to the Trail Blazers.

It was a typical stat line for Muhammad, who usually offers solid point totals relative to playing time and a modest amount of rebounds. The fourth-year pro has hit double digits in the scoring column in five of the last six games and is averaging a solid 11.9 points across 22.0 minutes in 12 March contests.
9:26 am (EST)
Kris Dunn Headshot

Dunn poured in 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and added four rebounds, one assist and two steals over 29 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Dunn received extended run for the third consecutive night and parlayed his Saturday opportunity into a career-high scoring total. The rookie is averaging a season-high 18.1 minutes during March and his 43.1 percent success rate from the field this month represents his best figure in that category during his rookie campaign. Dunn has shot 50 percent or better in three of his last five contests and been solid on the boards the last two games as well, averaging 5.5 rebounds over that span.
9:22 am (EST)
Ricky Rubio Headshot

Rubio compiled 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 25 minutes in Thursday's 112-100 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Despite playing his fewest amount of minutes since Feb. 8, Rubio turned in his 11th double-digit scoring effort in 12 March games, posting his sixth game with better than 50 percent shooting over that span. The 26-year-old Spaniard is enjoying his best offensive month of the season, with his 16.3 points and 46.9 percent success rate from the field both serving as season-best figures.
