Josh Smith will not play Friday against the Bulls.
Although the Pistons have not made an official announcement it is looking as if Smith may be shut down for the remainder of the season. While Smith is out Kyle Singler and Rodney Stuckey will continue to start and see plenty of minutes.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
