Nothing is going right for the NBA-worst 5-25 Detroit Pistons this season and it's just gotten even more distraught. Rookie Cade Cunningham has entered COVID-19 protocols, per The Athletic's Shams Charania:

The Pistons have actually stayed relatively clear of COVID problems. In fact, according to their injury report, he is the only player on their roster to be in the league's health and safety protocols. However, it just takes one person to get it, and then it can spread, just like we've seen across the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, Brooklyn Nets, and most recently, the Toronto Raptors.

This couldn't come at a worse time for Detroit though with Jerami Grant currently sidelined with a thumb injury. Cunningham has basically been the Pistons' primary source of offense alongside second-year forward Saddiq Bey with Grant out. The 2021 first overall pick out of Oklahoma is averaging an impressive 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per night in 24 games played. Cunningham is shooting just 31% from long range, though.

The Pistons are 1-9 in their last 10 games and will have an extremely hard time winning any games now with their two best players on the shelf in Cunningham and Grant. Let's hope it doesn't grow into a full-blown outbreak because Detroit is already struggling in the first place. A more depleted roster isn't going to help.
