Reggie Bullock will start at guard for the Pistons


The Detroit Pistons have been injury-ravaged this season and will make a lineup change to counter the absence of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jon Leuer.

The Detroit Pistons have been injury-ravaged this season, starting in training camp when they lost Reggie Jackson to knee tendinitis. Jackson is back, but since then Reggie Bullock, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jon Leuer have all been out with various injuries.

With KCP and Leuer currently out, Bullock couldn’t have picked a better time to return from a torn meniscus. He’ll start in KCP’s place at the two-guard spot tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers as the Pistons’ road trip from hell comes to an end.

Bullock made his return to the Pistons lineup on Friday against the Utah Jazz after missing the past 25 games.

Bullock scored seven points on six shots and added two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 26 minutes. As he’s getting his cardio back, a debut at altitude in Salt Lake City is always a tough way to come back into game action.

Next: Is Marcus Morris the problem for the Pistons?

Considering how thin the Pistons’ lineup is across the board right now, expect Bullock to see at least near-starters minutes.
