After tomorrow, the Pistons will have a quiet stretch where they’ll only play three games in 10 days. To return, Cade Cunningham will either have to wait 10 days or return two negative PCR tests, whichever is first. – 5:58 PM

More on this storyline

Ohm Youngmisuk: Ty Lue said Reggie Jackson said he doesn’t have any symptoms and is feeling fine. Luke Kennard (hip), who is also out, has been dealing with a hip issue and felt sore this morning. So the Clippers see this as a good opportunity to get him rest between games. -via Twitter @NotoriousOHM / December 22, 2021
Rylan Stiles: Mark Daigneault says they are aware they have been able to avoid COVID protocols but “no one is above the virus adds “there is a randomness” but the team is staying “humble” and as “vigilant” as possible. -via Twitter @Rylan_Stiles / December 22, 2021
Sarah K. Spencer: Kevin Huerter is now also out in health and safety protocols. That’s six Hawks out in protocols now. -via Twitter @sarah_k_spence / December 22, 2021
