2019 Fantasy Outlook
Brown emerged as a starter at shooting guard for the Pistons during the second half of the regular season, starting in 46 of the team's final 47 contests. His production, however, remained relatively unchanged with the move to the starting five. In fact, his points per game dropped from 4.6 points as a reserve to 4.2 as a starter, but this was likely due to him playing with more high-volume, ball-dominant scorers as a starter. Regardless, the second-round pick out of Miami showed he still has plenty to work on with his perimeter game, as he shot just 25.8 percent from behind the arc on just 1.3 attempts per game. This wasn't too surprising considering Brown shot just 31.6 percent from three in his two seasons at Miami, but it leaves Brown vulnerable heading into his second year. With the Pistons boasting plenty of backcourt options, including Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and the newly-acquired Derrick Rose, Brown will have plenty of competition for minutes and has by no means secured a spot in the starting lineup for next year.

College/International Summary

When Brown began his career at Miami in 2016-17, coach Jim Larranaga thought he might be a solid reserve as a freshman. The 6-fooot-4 guard came off the bench in four of the first five games, then was installed as a starter for the rest of his career. In his 11th game, he put up a triple-double (11 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists). The Boston native also scored 30 points in a win over North Carolina. He averaged 11.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists, and Miami was invited to the NCAA Tournament. A foot injury limited Brown to 19 games as a sophomore, but he opened the season with a second triple-double. He played his last game in a Hurricane uniform on Jan. 27, 2018 and provided 11.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists. After his abbreviated second season, Brown declared for the 2018 NBA Draft and was selected 42nd overall by Detroit.

Recovers from thumb surgery
GDetroit Pistons
Ankle
May 15, 2020
Brown (ankle) underwent surgery in late April to repair a ligament in his right thumb but indicated that he would be ready to play if the NBA season resumes, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
It's not clear when Brown suffered the injury, but he seems to have made a full recovery from the procedure while the NBA has been on hiatus for the past two months. Before the league-wide shutdown, Brown missed the Pistons' most recent game March 11 against the 76ers due to a sprained ankle, but that injury no longer appears to be a concern either. The 23-year-old has averaged 8.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals across 28.2 minutes in his second NBA season.
