It’s safe to say Austin Daye still finds himself out of the rotation largely because, with a few exceptions, he’s played really poorly this season. But apparently, an ankle injury that he sustained early in the season still could be bothering him. Daye sent these two tweets before last night’s game:
Gunna get back to the hotel and get a pool workout in to try and get my ankle better!
On the way to Arena early gunna get some treatment on my ankle and get up some shots #clearingthemind
Hopefully the All-Star break gives Daye a chance to fully heal. The Pistons are certainly in a position to try and give him ample opportunities in the second half of the season to get his shot straightened around if he can get his confidence back up.
