Injured in a hip since January 5, Killian Hayes returns to competition on the night of Saturday to Sunday against the Knicks. The French leader can hope to prove himself at the end of the season.
Chosen in seventh position in the Draft by the Detroit Pistons, Killian Hayes only had time to play seven small games in the NBA. This is due to a hip injury contracted Jan. 5 on the Milwaukee court. Since, the former Ulm player (Germany) started in all matches and who scored 4.6 points and delivered 3.6 assists on average in 21 minutes, missed three months of competition or 41 games. Her frankness still occupies last place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 14 wins and 34 losses but she can be delighted to see her French leader return very soon.
According to The Athletic, Killian Hayes is expected to make his return on Saturday night (2:00 a.m. KST) for the game against the New York Knicks. It remains to be seen whether Pistons coach Dwayne Casey will give him the same role he played at the start of the season in the 23 regular-season games that remain to be played. Since his injury, the Michigan franchise roster has changed a lot with the departures of major players Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin in New York, respectively for the Knicks and the Nets. Casey thinks those moves can help the 19-year-old put a dent in Detroit.

For his season of adaptation in the prestigious Basketball League, the best can only come for Killian Hayes.
