Bynum, Gordon out Thursday
Ben Gordon (sprained ankle) will miss his second straight game and will be joined on the sideline by Will Bynum, who sprained his left ankle against Philadelphia on Wednesday. Bynum had been playing through a sprained right ankle when he sprained his left ankle against the 76ers.
“Right now, it’s pretty much confirmed, I don’t think Will Bynum will play tonight,” Pistons coach John Kuester said before Thursday’s game. “Tayshaun, Rip, Will Bynum, Ben Gordon will not play tonight.”
The injuries leave the Pistons awful thin at guard. Chucky Atkins and Rodney Stuckey will have to play major minutes, with Austin Daye and DaJuan Summers likely providing some depth at guard.
