New York — Pistons guard Hamidou Diallo did not play during Tuesday's 117-96 loss due to a leg injury he suffered during practice this week.
"A little leg injury, a little contusion I had in practice," Diallo told The Detroit News after the game. "Nothing major, just maintenance. Making sure I'm ready to go when everything really gets started."
Diallo, a 6-foot-5 wing, played an integral role as a reserve in the Pistons rotation last season. Diallo averaged 11 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 58 games in 2021-22.
He participated in the Pistons' open scrimmage on Sunday.
