Game notes: Killian Hayes makes his return to action three months after suffering a painful hip injury (here's what we're watching; sign up for $1 for three months to read our most exclusive Pistons content). He's coming off the bench, with Saben Lee starting at the point. They'll face former teammate Derrick Rose, who makes his second return trip to Detroit, after recently getting back on the court following an extended COVID-19 ordeal. The Pistons dealt Rose to the playoff-contending Knicks on Feb. 7 for Dennis Smith Jr. and a second-round pick. New York, which lost vs. Dallas on Friday, is tied for seventh in the Eastern Conference, and has won both games vs. the Pistons this season. ... The Pistons have won two of three and own the worst record in the East and third-worst overall. This is the final game before a five-game Western road trip.
