The Detroit Pistons are hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves in Michigan on Thursday night, but for the game they will be without one of their best players.  

2021 first overall pick Cade Cunningham has been ruled out for the game due to a hip injury and his status can be seen in the tweet that is embedded below from the Twitter account of Underdog NBA. 

The Pistons have played 50 games this season, and are currently 12-38. 

They are the 14th seed in the Eastern Conference, and clearly in a rebuilding mode. 

Last season, they got rid of Blake Griffin, who had been the face of the franchise for several seasons.

They have a nice group of young players, but are very far away from legitimate playoff contention for this season. 

  • DEROZAN PASSES JORDAN ON A LIST FOR THE BULLS: DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls have been on a roll to start the new season as the top team in the Eastern Conference. DeRozan is a four-time All-Star in his first season in Chicago, and he passed Hall of Famer Michael Jordan on a franchise-record list. CLICK HERE.
  • STEPH AND THE WARRIORS ARE ON FIRE: The Golden State Warriors have not made the playoffs in two seasons, but that appears likely to change this season. They are on fire to start the season led by superstar guard Steph Curry and have one of the best records in the entire NBA. . CLICK HERE.
