|Jerami Grant: Cleared for on-court work|
The Pistons assigned Grant (thumb) to the G League's Motor City Cruise on Monday to resume on-court work, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
The Scoop: Detroit isn't yet offering up a timeline for Grant's return, but his ability to get on the court following Dec. 16 right thumb surgery can be viewed as a promising sign. Because he's been shut down for the past month, Grant will likely need multiple practices with both the G League affiliate and the NBA team to regain full conditioning, but his return date will ultimately hinge on when his surgically repaired thumb has completely healed. Whenever Grant makes his return to the lineup, Hamidou Diallo is expected to move back into a bench role.
