Lawrence Frank expected to miss four-game road trip


Ryan Field of Fox Sports Detroit:

"Brian Hill says he expects Lawrence Frank to miss the rest of the West Coast trip."

The Pistons play the Clippers tonight, Jazz tomorrow, Warriors on Wednesday and Trail Blazers on Saturday. After that, the Pistons have 14 games remaining this season.

At this point, I at least wonder whether Lawrence Frank will return this season. There’s obviously plenty of time left, but this already a longer-than-usual absence. Caring for his wife trumps basketball, and this season will end in the lottery, anyway. Frank shouldn’t rush back, but I definitely hope things turn for the better at home to the point he can return.
