Murphy's Law states that "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong," an adage that could be applied to the Detroit Pistons.

From the roster construction, to the coaching, to the lack of development, to embarrassing off-the-court incidents to a flurry of late-season injuries that has left the team looking like a G-League squad, pretty much everything has gone wrong for the Pistons this season, most of it by their own doing and some just bad luck.

For the 4th straight season, the Pistons will finish with a rotation that scarcely resembles the one they started with, waiving the white flag by shutting guys down with 10 miserable games to go.

Jaden Ivey and Marcus Sasser are the only players on the roster with the chance to play at least 70 games this season, an ongoing issue that has to be addressed.

But with 10 games remaining, the Detroit Pistons may get a couple of regulars back tonight, which will at least give them a fighting chance on the road against Minnesota, who could use the Pistons as a rest game.

Detroit Pistons vs. Minnesota Timberwolves: Injury update

Ausar Thompson, Isaiah Stewart and Stanley Umude have all been ruled out for the season. Stewart only played in 46 games this season, so any progress he made is tempered by the fact that he didn't play much.

Cade Cunningham has been upgraded to questionable for tonight's game with his knee maintenance and Jalen Duren is listed as probable on the official injury report.

Minnesota is missing Karl-Anthony Towns and Jaylen Clark and both Anthony Edwards and Rudy Gobert are listed as questionable. The Pistons provide a valuable service to the rest of the league, allowing them to rest their key players with little risk of losing the game.

However, the Timberwolves still have a chance to catch the Thunder and Nuggets, so if Edwards and Gobert can play, they probably will.

The Pistons have eight of their final 10 games on the road as they continue to march towards the worst record in team history.
