Ersan Ilyasova, Marcus Morris and Adonis Thomas all left Saturday's scrimmage with various injuries, forcing head coach Stan Van Gundy to cut the Pistons' open-to-the-public practice at The Palace of Auburn Hills short:
"It was either end the scrimmage with 36 seconds or I had to play," Van Gundy said. "We decided to go with ending the scrimmage. But I'll tell you, my stance is really good. I just don't know if I can move out of it."
