Detroit Pistons star Jerami Grant plans to make his return to action on Saturday on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Most Improved Player of the Year candidate has been out since April 26 with right knee soreness. Grant, 27, spent his first two seasons in the league in Philadelphia. The Pistons are 19-47, which is the worst record in the Eastern Conference and the second-worst record in the league ahead of the 16-49 Houston Rockets.
Rod Beard: #Pistons Jerami Grant (knee soreness) is OUT tonight at SAC, along with Rodney McGruder. Mason Plumlee (concussion evaluation) and Jahlil Okafor (!) are questionable. #DFS
Rod Beard: #Pistons Jerami Grant is listed as questionable for tonight at #Knicks. Josh Jackson and Frank Jackson still are OUT. #Knicks are a different team, but with what we saw last night, I'd guess they sit Grant (for the extended break) and run it back. That was fun.

Aaron J. Fentress: Damian Lillard (abdomen) and Nassir Little (ankle) will each miss several games. Lillard is out at least 10 days while Little is out at least a week. All of those days of “no injuries to report” or having one guy down screamed that bad luck was around the corner for #RipCity
