January 24, 2015 Updates

Detroit Pistons forward Kyle Singler will be wearing a protective mask on his face against the Milwaukee Bucks tonight after suffering a nasal fracture Wednesday against the Orlando Magic. Singler was fitted for the mask Friday and the Pistons didn't have a shoot around this morning so he'll test it out for the first time in warm ups before taking the floor against the Bucks.

But when Andre Drummond's injury forced him out of Friday's game for rookies and second-year players in conjunction with NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, leaving only second-year Brandon Knight from the Pistons, head coach Lawrence Frank said he felt sure that Singler would be named the rookie replacement. Orlando's Andrew Nicholson was tapped instead and Frank said he considered it it a snub to Singler. "Maybe he's one of those guys that unless you coach him, there's not the appreciation," Frank said. "But his numbers, you look at his numbers, he's in the top nine of that rookie group. So I thought he was snubbed but what are you going to do?" Booth Newspapers

Kyle Singler is really good at trick shots. He did it at Duke all around the campus. So now the Pistons took him out and had him take shots all around Detroit — getting buckets. My favorites are the field goal at Ford Field and… okay, that moving car shot may be the best trick shot I have ever seen. That is impressive. NBCSports.com

Even though the small forward position is crowded with Tayshaun Prince and Corey Maggette, it'll be hard to keep Singler on the bench because of his ability to hit threes and his basketball IQ. "He makes us more athletic," Pistons big man Greg Monroe said. "He's a smart player." Singler said: "I'm here getting to know my teammates." Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Pistons announced Friday that they’ve come to terms with former Duke star Kyle Singler, who played last season in Spain after being drafted in the second round by the NBA team in 2011. “We expect to sign Kyle Singler on July 11,” Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said in a statement. “We look forward to having him with the Pistons this season.” Wilmington NC News

A 6-foot-8 forward who earned Most Outstanding Player honors in leading the Blue Devils to the 2012 national championship, Singler signed with the Spanish club Lucentum Alicante during the NBA lockout. He decided to stay in Spain even after the labor dispute was settled, signing a one-year deal with Real Madrid, where he averaged more than 14 points per game. “The opportunity to play a lot more was here, but the bottom line was I was happy and felt no pressure to leave and go back to the NBA,” Singler, who was the 33rd overall pick in last year’s draft, told the Associated Press recently. “Deep down, I knew it was the best decision for me to stay. I’ll have another chance to play in the NBA, there was no real rush.” Wilmington NC News
