Questionable against Philadelphia
Grant was unable to practice Wednesday due to an infection in his left elbow, but he still has a chance to play against Philadelphia. If the 27-year-old is held out Thursday, Kelly Olynyk will likely join the starting five once again.

Doesn't practice Wednesday
Grant was sidelined for Monday's game with an infection in his left elbow, which allowed Kelly Olynyk to join the starting lineup. The 6-foot-8 forward's status for Thursday's matchup with the Sixers is in jeopardy after missing Wednesday's practice, so Olynyk may be in line for another start.

Leads bench in scoring
Lyles has scored a combined 20 points in his previous two contests. He shot a respectable 38.7 percent from behind the arc on 2.7 attempts per game for the Spurs two season ago. Still just 25 years old, perhaps Detroit will eventually look to incorporate Lyles over veteran Kelly Olynyk. Until then, Lyles is a fantasy afterthought.
