DETROIT: GUARDS: RODNEY STUCKEY was hampered by nagging injuries a year ago. If he's healthy, he's the best offensive weapon they have . . . BRANDON KNIGHT is more of a combo guard running the point. He can shoot, but doesn't bring much else to the table . . . With Ben Gordon gone, WILL BYNUM has a chance to regain a significant role . . . The Pistons' two second-round picks have a chance to carve out big roles. KIM ENGLISH has a skill set similar to Gordon's, capable of heating up and scoring in bunches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON is more of a spot-up, catch-and-shoot threat only . . . Former No. 6 overall pick JONNY FLYNN agreed to a non-guaranteed contract in October, as he is no guarantee to even make this sorry roster. FORWARDS: TAYSHAUN PRINCE is still hanging on as the Pistons' best all-around player . . . JASON MAXIELL should be able to reclaim his starting spot early. He rebounds and takes up space . . . JONAS JEREBKO showed flashes but looked rusty in his first year back from an Achilles injury . . . 2011 2nd-rounder KYLE SINGLER has a good chance to step into the rotation after a solid year in Spain . . . COREY MAGGETTE was acquired in a Ben Gordon salary dump. He'll see limited minutes . . . AUSTIN DAYE regressed big-time last year. Unless he gets off to a hot start, he'll be on the outside looking in at the rotation . . . TERRENCE WILLIAMS is seeking a new lease on life, but could be too much of a head case to realize he's wasting his talent . . . The Pistons are counting down the days left on CHARLIE VILLANUEVA's contract (two years). CENTERS: GREG MONROE is a solid fit in Frank's system. He's not a great athlete, but he can score and move the ball on offense, as well as rebound . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND could one day be a perfect fit alongside Monroe. But for now, he'll watch and learn as a raw, boom-or-bust prospect . . . VIACHESLAV KRAVTSOV is an athletic big who will bring energy, but little offense in limited minutes.
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.

*Pistons-Hornets Preview* =========================


Detroit (23-37) at New Orleans (20-39), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The New Orleans Hornets handily got by the Detroit Pistons two weeks ago despite Eric Gordon's absence and an ugly line from Anthony Davis.

Coach Monty Williams' team certainly missed both guys during its last game.

While Gordon figures to return, Davis is uncertain to be available again Friday night as the Hornets host the Pistons.

New Orleans (20-39) rolled to an easy 105-86 victory at Detroit (23-37) on Feb. 11 behind Ryan Anderson's 31 points and Robin Lopez's 23 and 10 rebounds. Davis scored one point and shot 0 of 7 that night while Gordon, who continues to sit out the second games of back-to-backs as he works his way back from a knee injury, didn't play.

One night after falling 101-97 to Brooklyn, the Hornets never really had a chance Wednesday at Oklahoma City with Gordon and Davis sidelined. Anderson had 14 points but was the only player to score in double figures as the Hornets suffered their most lopsided defeat of the season, 119-74.

Davis sprained his left shoulder in a collision Tuesday and is listed as day-to-day.

"That's part of the game. We don't make any excuses about not having guys," said Williams, whose team has dropped five of six. "If you get a chance to play in the NBA, you've got to cherish it. It's a blessing to play in the NBA. Not everybody looks at it that way."

Greivis Vasquez had six points and shot 3 of 13 on Wednesday while Lopez scored seven on 2-of-10 shooting. The Hornets were outrebounded 48-25.

"We're young and we're learning but that can't be an excuse every time we lose," said rookie Austin Rivers, who started in place of Gordon. "We just have to flush this away and move forward. We still have a lot of games left. We've got so much to improve on.

"Things can turn around so quickly. We've got so much talent and it's not just talent, we work hard. We work so hard. So, we've just got to keep building and it'll come."

The Pistons had dropped three in a row before kicking off a three-game road trip with Wednesday's 96-95 win over Washington. Brandon Knight, who missed the previous three games due to a right knee injury, returned to score a career-high 32 points.

"The biggest thing for us was just playing with energy," Knight said. "That's what I saw sitting on the side for the past three games - our lack of fight. For me, it wasn't about making shots, it was about coming in and trying to make sure we played Pistons basketball."

Detroit has won eight straight when Knight posts at least 17 points. The second-year guard scored just seven on 3-of-10 shooting in the Feb. 11 loss to New Orleans.

"He's a big part of what we do," center Greg Monroe said of Knight, "so whenever he's on the floor, guys do feel better."

Monroe also came up big Wednesday with 26 points and 11 boards. Recently acquired point guard Jose Calderon, meanwhile, matched a season high with 18 assists.

Detroit recorded assists on each of its first 16 field goals, its best such start in at least a decade.

"(Calderon) got our guys easy baskets and delivered the ball exactly at the right time," coach Lawrence Frank said. "He will continue to get better because he is still learning our guys."

The Pistons have dropped 28 of their last 29 road matchups against Western Conference teams, including all eight this season by an average of 12.2 points. They've lost three straight at New Orleans, but haven't visited since Dec. 8, 2010.
