Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 8:27 PM EDT Oct 9, 2018 Ann Arbor — In the Pistons’ locker room, the veterans value their space, often taking two lockers to store their extra clothes and gear. Not far from Blake Griffin’s and Andre Drummond’s is rookie Zach Lofton’s locker. The placement is by design, to give the young player some veterans to guide and mentor him. It’s an extra lifeline to make sure that Lofton, 25, doesn’t fall through the cracks or potentially give in to the temptations off the court that can derail the talent that Lofton flashes when he has the ball in his hands. There was the flash of seven points in Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, when he had a drive through the lane for a highlight-worthy dunk.

Chris McCosky The Detroit News Published 10:20 p.m. UTC Jun 16, 2018 Chicago — It was a busy pregame around the Tigers’ clubhouse Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field. First, the news on Miguel Cabrera’s surgery Thursday was encouraging. “Everything went fine,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “He’s doing really well.” Cabrera had surgery in New York City to repair a ruptured biceps tendon in his left arm. The surgery was performed by Dr. David Altchek. Cabrera was released from hospital Friday and, as Gardenhire addressed the media in Chicago, was on a flight back to Detroit.
