Tonight's game between the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Hornets is not going to get much national attention.
The Pistons have won just four games, the Hornets just 10, and at this point, Charlotte has accounted for 25 percent of Detroit's wins, so these two arent contending for anything but lottery position.
The Pistons beat the Hornets way back in October when the season still had hope, but Detroit has only won three games since.
But this is a huge game for fans of the Pistons, as the team has been playing marginally better lately, they have two winnable games in a row at home and it could be the first game this season the team has a full roster.
Is Cade Cunningham playing tonight? Pistons injuries vs. Hornets
Both Cade Cunningham and Monte Morris have been upgraded to probable for tonight's game against Charlotte and are expected to play.
Morris has missed the entire season thus far and Cade has missed the last seven games with a knee injury. Both players will likely be on some kind of minutes limitation but their return has a lot of implications for the Pistons.
-This should mark the end of Killian Hayes' time with the Detroit Pistons, as Morris is likely to take the backup point guard minutes. Perhaps not initially, but the days of watching Hayes airball five-foot shots are nearly over.
-The Pistons' bench could be more of a strength now that they will have solid veterans in Morris, Alec Burks, Mike Muscala and Danilo Gallinari flanking the two rookies Ausar Thompson and Marcus Sasser.
-We could see different closing lineups once Morris gets his legs under him. The Pistons have been flat-out abysmal in the clutch this season and could use a steady hand to help Cade Cunningham down the stretch of close games.
The Hornets do not have any players on the injured list, but yesterday they traded guard Terry Rozier, which should make Detroit's job a little easier, though the trade might have negative implications for the Pistons.
