R.J. Hampton Jr. (back) will be active for Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.

R.J. Hampton Jr. (back) is questionable for Detroit's matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.
Hampton missed Detroit's last game because of lower-back spasms that he's currently dealing with, and that same issue will jeopardize his status for Tuesday's game. The team will make a decision about his availability closer to game time, and Cory Joseph will get more work if Hampton is out against the Hawks.
R.J. Hampton Jr. (illness) is considered probable for Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Hampton is a recent addition to the injury report, being listed with a non-covid illness that will leave him with an injury designation for Saturday. It's not thought to be a serious issue, however, and the team expects him to suit up and play against the Cavaliers.
