After the news broke on Wednesday that rookie sensation Cade Cunningham would be entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols, we knew things could only get worse from there.
Now, hours before tip-off against the Miami Heat, things did indeed get worse. As if the Pistons roster wasn’t already depleted enough, Killian Hayes, Isaiah Stewart, and Saben Lee will now be joining Cunningham in protocols, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Following Detroit’s contest against the Knicks on Tuesday, New York center Nerlens Noel was forced into protocols, immediately spiking the anxiety for the entire Pistons roster. Now, that fear has become a reality, as the 5-25 Detroit Pistons will head into their upcoming game down four starters.
