Reggie Bullock Injured(Det)

Reggie Bullock (Det)

Reggie Bullock was suspended Thursday for five games for violating the terms of the league's Anti-Drug Program, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Impact

Bullock appeared in just 31 games for the Pistons last season while recovering from a left meniscus tear that left him out for an extended amount of time. When healthy, he served as the team's primary backup at shooting guard behind Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. For next season, while the state of Detroit's rotation is currently unknown, Bullock starting out the season inactive could open up an opportunity for Stanley Johnson to see extended time and establish himself as a key member of the rotation to open up his third NBA season.

Older News

Reggie Bullock will revert back to the bench for Monday's game against the Wizards, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Impact

Bullock drew the start at shooting guard Sunday with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope receiving the night off for rest. With the latter back in commission Monday, Bullock will come off the bench in a role in which he's averaged just 2.2 points and 1.9 rebounds across 13 games since the beginning of March.

Reggie Bullock will start at shooting guard for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Impact

The Pistons are fully expected to rest Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Sunday, which allows Bullock to re-enter the starting five. He should be in line for heavy workload Sunday, before likely falling back to the bench for Monday's tilt with the Wizards.

Reggie Bullock (foot) started at shooting guard and put up seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in a 105-102 loss to the Raptors on Wednesday.

Impact

In his return from a four-game absence, Bullock joined the starting five to begin the game with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tending to a family matter, but Bullock ended up surrendering time in the second half, when Caldwell-Pope arrived at the arena and came out of halftime with the starters. Assuming Caldwell-Pope's personal matter doesn't force him to miss further action, Bullock figures to see his minutes cut down even more in Friday's game against the Rockets.

Reggie Bullock (foot) will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Impact

Bullock will start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal). He has missed the previous four games with a right foot sprain, and was listed as questionable for Wednsday's game. However, he figures to battle through any lingering pain from the issue due to Caldwell-Pope's absence. Bullock has averaged 9.3 points, 4.0 boards, and 2.0 assists across 33.3 minutes in three other starts this season.

Reggie Bullock (foot) is listed as questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Impact

Bullock has now missed four straight games with a right foot sprain, and given that there has been no report of him participating in practice, it seems unlikely he'll be able to return Wednesday, even though the team has had off since Friday. Bullock may attempt to test the ankle during pregame warmups, but chances are high that the shooting guard will miss a fifth straight contest.

Reggie Bullock (foot) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nets, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Impact

Bullock has missed the last two contests with a sprained right foot and despite the added time off, the injury is still giving him enough discomfort to remain on the sidelines. With the Pistons currently playing in the first game of a back-to-back set, they could just be taking a cautious approach with Bullock in order to limit his workload. That said, his status for Friday'st tilt against the Bucks likely won't be updated until he's able to test the injury out during warmups. Look for Stanley Johnson to see a slight uptick in minutes on Thursday.

Reggie Bullock (foot) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

Impact

Bullock was held out of Monday's game against the Knicks because of a right foot sprain and it appears he's still dealing with enough discomfort to be sidelined a second consecutive contest. He'll likely need to put in a full practice in order to be cleared ahead of Thursday's tilt with the Nets, so look for an updated status later this week. Stanley Johnson could pick up some extra minutes on the wing in Bullock's absence.

Reggie Bullock (foot) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

Impact

Bullock sat out Monday's loss to the Knicks with the right foot sprain, and since the Pistons didn't hold a morning shootaround heading into the second half of the back-to-back set, the wing's status for Tuesday likely won't be known until closer to the 7:30 p.m. ET tip off. Considering that Bullock was in a walking boot as of Monday, it wouldn't be surprising if he missed a second straight contest.

Reggie Bullock suffered from a right foot sprain and has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Knicks, Aaron McMann of MLive.com reports.

Impact

It's unclear when exactly Bullock suffered from the injury, but it appears as though it is serious enough to hold him out for at least Monday's contest. This is yet another ailment for the former North Carolina standout in a season that was been plagued with injuries. His absence likely won't have a major impact on the team's rotation, but it could mean more minutes for Stanley Johnson off the bench. However, the team has typically elected to have starter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope play a heavier dose of minutes when Bullock is out.
