Caldwell-Pope probable, Pistons finally healthy
Auburn Hills — Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy has some decisions to make now.
For the first time this season, Van Gundy has a full, healthy roster, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope upgraded to probable for tonight’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings at The Palace.
The Pistons (21-24) have won three straight but lost the first meeting against the Kings (16-27), 100-94, after giving up an 18-point lead.
Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) has missed the last four games and participated in the morning walk-through. If he’s able to play, he will return to the starting lineup.
“I was a little surprised by that myself,” Van Gundy said. “We’ll see tonight after he goes out and warms up. He looks like he will go.”
Forward Jon Leuer returned to the lineup in the 113-112 win over the Wizards on Saturday night but Van Gundy didn’t reveal whether he’ll put Leuer back in as a starter and return Tobias Harris to the sixth man role.
