MEMPHIS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Taylor Jenkins (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F/C Jaren Jackson Jr. (13.8 ppg), G Ja Morant (rookie), C Jonas Valanciunas (15.6), G/F Dillon Brooks (7.5), F Jae Crowder (11.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Mike Conley, G Jevon Carter, G Delon Wright.
KEY ADDITIONS: Morant, G Grayson Allen, F Brandon Clarke, Crowder, G Marko Guduric, F Solomon Hill, G Tyus Jones, G/F Jon Konchar, G De'Anthony Melton, C Miles Plumlee.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Jackson is fully recovered from the bruised right quadriceps muscle that limited his rookie season to 58 games, and the No. 4 pick overall in 2018 has even grown a little bit. Morant played his way into the No. 2 draft pick overall in June, and now the 6-3 guard will get to showcase his speed, passing skills and court vision surrounded by players closer to his talent level than he did in college at Murray State. Valanciunas earned an extension from Memphis and now must prove he can keep producing double-doubles regularly.
OUTLOOK: Marc Gasol and Conley both are gone, and it's up to Jackson and Morant to lead this rebuilding process for Memphis after the Grizzlies revamped the roster as much as possible in one offseason. This season may not be pretty at times, but at least the Grizzlies have hope for the future based on a duo they hope will become big stars. The franchise just may have to wait a couple seasons or more for a return to the postseason.
DETROIT: LAST SEASON: 41-41, lost in first round of Eastern Conference playoffs.
COACH: Dwane Casey (second season, 11th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Reggie Jackson (15.4 ppg), G Bruce Brown (4.3 ppg), G Tony Snell (6.0 ppg), F Blake Griffin (24.5 ppg), C Andre Drummond (17.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Wayne Ellington, G Ish Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: G Derrick Rose, G Tony Snell.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There are no illusions about Rose still being an MVP candidate, but he averaged 18 points a game last season and could be a real X-factor for Detroit. The Pistons have relied on the trio of Griffin, Drummond and Jackson for a while now, and Jackson has been the most erratic member of that group. If Rose gives Detroit more production at point guard, that could be a big plus for the Pistons, although his health is always a concern.
OUTLOOK: Griffin was simply terrific last season, re-establishing himself as one of the game's stars, but his injury woes popped up again right around playoff time. Detroit would love to manage his minutes in a way that keeps him fresh for the end of the season, but that won't be easy if the Pistons are on the playoff bubble like last season. Another postseason berth is certainly possible, and if things break right, maybe Detroit can get a more favorable seed and win a round, but the gap between the Pistons and the conference's top teams remains formidable.
Banged-up Pistons look to keep momentum rolling vs. Grizzlies

The Detroit Pistons never had their whole team together this season. For the time being, they at least have their top two point guards in action.

Reggie Jackson returned Wednesday after missing all but the first two games with a back injury. He gave the Pistons a huge lift with 22 points off the bench in just 19 minutes, helping them begin a four-game homestand with a 127-106 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

They'll play a back-to-back this weekend, beginning with a matchup against Memphis on Friday.

Derrick Rose also scored 22 points along with doling out 11 assists. That's the potent combination coach Dwane Casey envisioned at the beginning of the season.

"He gives us two big-time point guards on the floor," Casey said. "When you can alternate those two guys, you have stability at the point guard position. That's what this league is about -- guys who can create, run the floor. Having those two guys together makes a difference."

Detroit's season has been marred by injuries to key players. Star forward Blake Griffin missed the first 10 games due to knee and hamstring injuries. He continued to be nagged by knee soreness and underwent season-ending surgery earlier this month. Swingman Luke Kennard hasn't played since Dec. 21 due to tendinitis in both knees.

Center Andre Drummond missed the Kings game with a lip laceration, though he's expected to play this weekend. Another starter, guard Bruce Brown, was sidelined by the flu.

Jackson's return was a welcome sight for the banged-up club, which has won three of its last four.

"Reggie had some fresh legs," forward Markieff Morris told the team's website. "He came back (Wednesday) very aggressive. Seemed like he didn't miss a beat. He was big in the win."

The Pistons, who are in sell mode prior to next month's trade deadline, might not have the point guard duo together for long. Rose's name has been bandied about in trade rumors.

Jackson was just glad to contribute again.

"I felt good and was just fortunate enough to make some shots," Jackson said. "Teammates did a great job spacing the fall, setting screens, getting the ball to me. Just made the game easy."

Memphis has lost its last two games following a seven-game winning streak. The Grizzlies were blown out at Boston, 119-95, on Wednesday. The Celtics took control by outscoring the Grizzlies 33-17 in the second quarter.

"We can always get better," coach Taylor Jenkins said. "I felt that we were playing OK, but we could have played a lot better and they just took it to a whole other level. As I said, the word 'elite' -- and they were elite in that second quarter. We kind of paid the price."

Memphis had no response in the second half. It committed 19 turnovers during the game.

"They brought it defensively," Jenkins said. "This is something we talked about. It is great for our guys to experience, especially our young guys."

Ja Morant, the top candidate for Rookie of the Year, will look to bounce back from arguably his worst outing this season. The point guard scored just two points in 24 minutes.
