Detroit Pistons’ rookie guard Killian Hayes injured
DETROIT (AP) — Pistons rookie guard Killian Hayes has a torn labrum in his right hip and will continue to be evaluated by the team’s medical staff.
The team announced Hayes’ condition Wednesday but did not give a timeline for his expected recovery. He had an MRI on Tuesday.
Detroit drafted Hayes with the No. 7 pick in 2020. He has averaged 4.6 points and 21.1 minutes in seven games.
He was injured during the third quarter of a 125-115 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.
“It’s tough, especially for a young kid to play his sixth game or seventh game and be injured, coming into the league, just figuring it out,” coach Dwane Casey said before the Pistons’ game Wednesday at Milwaukee.
