When/where: 7 p.m. today, Little Caesars Arena

TV: Fox Sports Southeast

Stream: Fox Sports Go

Radio: 92.9 The Game

Injuries: Hawks—Ersan Ilyasova (knee), DeAndre’ Bembry (wrist) and Miles Plumlee (quad) are out; Mike Muscala (ankle) is doubtful; Malcolm Delaney (ankle), Dennis Schroder (ankle), and Marco Belinelli (Achilles) are probable.

Pistons—

What to watch for:

The Hawks (2-9) ended an eight-game losing streak on Sunday at Cleveland before losing to the Celtics at Philips Arena on Monday. The Hawks are last in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Hawks likely will be without Muscala for the third consecutive game. He was starting at power forward in place of Ilyasova, who is not on the trip. Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he planned to stick with Luke Babbitt in place of Muscala in the lineup.

The Pistons (8-3) have won three in a row and stand second to the Celtics in the East. After some lean years, the Pistons find themselves in the unfamiliar position of figuring out how to handle the attention that comes with success.

Dennis' one handed passes are weak!  When will he learn to make two handed, fundamental, professional passes?  Idiot?

Dedmon is oh so comfy,  in his new uniform.  His shooting stroke is Ray Allen - esque.  Beautiful.
