Friday’s game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Detroit Pistons will not be televised in either market and, in many ways, that is disappointing. With that said, we now know that the Hawks will be (very) shorthanded when they take the floor in Detroit.
Mike Conti of the Hawks Radio Network brings word that Dennis Schröder, Kent Bazemore and Marco Belinelli will be taking the night off.
Schroder, Bazemore and Belinelli will all be DNP-CDs tonight in Detroit— Mike Conti (@MikeConti929) October 6, 2017
DeAndre’ Bembry (triceps) is expected to return from injury tonight but the trio of veterans will now join Miles Plumlee (quad) on the shelf for the game. With John Collins omitted from the injury report after a shoulder injury on Wednesday, he appears to be ready to return but it will be a youth movement against the Pistons.
Malcolm Delaney, Quinn Cook, Tyler Dorsey and Nic Brussino (among others) should see upticks in playing time this evening. Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest.
