Pistons’ Lottery Pick Killian Hayes Out Indefinitely with Torn Labrum

When was the last time things have gone well in Detroit?

Feels like forever!

The Pistons are currently sitting in the Eastern Conference cellar at 1-6 with a roster with too many holes and question marks to keep track of. Very clearly, they are at the beginning of what may be a fairly lengthy rebuild which will almost definitely include trading their aging former All-Stars Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose.

That being said, they seem to have some nice young pieces to build around.

Last year, they drafted the relatively raw but talented Sekou Doumbouya. This past offseason they inked Jerami Grant to a long term extension and drafted Killian Hayes, Isaiah Stewart, and Saddiq Bey all in a busy first round of the 2020 NBA Draft. Well, as has been the trend over the past few years, the Pistons have been struck with more bad luck.

On Wednesday morning, it was reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic that lottery pick Hayes will be out indefinitely with a torn labrum in his hip. There is currently no timetable for his return as Derrick Rose is expected to slide into the starting point guard role in place of the 19-year old rookie.

Through seven games, Hayes has struggled shooting the ball, averaging only 4.6 points and 3.6 assists per game on 27.7-percent shooting from the field and an atrocious 25-percent from long range.
