Article Summary:

While Embiid worked his way into a Most Valuable Player candidate last season, he was still sidelined for 21 games with knee and back issues.

“He wants to play,” Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said of Cunningham. “The medical people are holding him back. You don’t want to rush him back if it’s not 100 percent. There are certain movements he has where it’s still sore.”

Also without last season’s leading scorer Jerami Grant, the Pistons struggled on the offensive end against the Hawks. “Live-ball turnovers. They’re going down dunking, the crowd’s going crazy. It was the type of turnovers.”

In addition, the Pistons continue to miss way too many open shots.
