Mykhailiuk Named to Team World in Rising Stars Game

Per Shams Charania, the NBA has released the rosters for Team USA and Team World in the upcoming Rising Stars game in Chicago during All-Star Weekend. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk will be representing his country, Ukraine, and the Pistons for Team World.

Mykhailiuk, in his second season with the Pistons, has been a strong contributor while the Pistons have faced a slew of injuries throughout the season. Currently, the small forward is averaging 8.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 22 minutes of action per night.

Mykhailiuk is the lone Piston representing Detroit in either the Rising Stars Game or the All-Star Game, as Andre Drummond, Derrick Rose and Sekou Doumbouya were not selected for their eligible games. However, Rose will be in the Skills Challenge on the night following the Rising Stars game.
