C - Detroit Pistons
Jalen Duren posted a double-double for the Pistons Saturday night, grabbing 11 rebounds and scoring 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-6 FT) while also dishing out three assists, recording one steal, and blocking four shots in a 112-109 loss to the Magic.
Duren has been dynamic on both ends of the floor after the all-star break, recording a double-double in each of the last two games since returning. The versatile center continues to provide fantasy managers with a reliable lineup option at the position, averaging 14.0 points and 12.0 rebounds per game while posting a usage rate of 17.1% so far this season.
Jalen Duren scored 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds and two assists in the Pistons 129-115 loss against the Pacers.
Duren played 30 minutes, recording his fourth double-double in his past six games. He should continue to see the minutes with Isaiah Stewart suspended two more games.
Jalen Duren scored 27 points (9-15 FG, 0-1 3PT, 9-10 FT) to go with 22 rebounds and three blocks in Thursday's 128-122 overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
Duren was a dominant force in Detroit's overtime win over the Blazers. He led the team with 27 points scored, and he did that while logging a new career high in rebounds with 22. He has stepped up for the Pistons recently with multiple key players out of the lineup, and he could continue to dominate for the rest of the season if he can maintain a high workload.
Jalen Duren scored 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-6 FT) to go with 15 rebounds and six assists in Wednesday's 133-120 win over the Sacramento Kings.
The big man had a great game on Wednesday. He scored 20 points over the course of 37 minutes, and he was also able to lead the team with 15 rebounds to complete his double-double. He will continue to play a large role as the primary center for this team going forward.
Jalen Duren posted a double-double for the Pistons Friday night, grabbing 13 rebounds and chipping in 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT) while also dishing out two assists in a 136-125 loss to the Clippers.
Duren continues a steady stretch on both ends of the floor of late, grabbing at least eight rebounds and scoring at least 10 points in each of his last five games for the Pistons. The athletic center has been the most reliable option as part of a disappointing Detroit squad to this point, averaging 13.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game while posting a 16.9% usage rate so far this season.
