News: Blake (coach's decision) didn't play in Wednesday's 123-114 victory over the Rockets.
Impact: Brandon Jennings (Achilles) hasn't been forced to miss any games since making his season debut Dec. 29, which has resulted in Blake's minutes disappearing almost entirely. Blake has played just twice in the 11 games that Jennings has been active, and will continue to go ignored off the bench while he serves as the team's third-string point guard behind Reggie Jackson and Jennings.
Rotowire: Dec 23 / 12:09p ET
News: Blake scored a season-high 12 points (4-5 FG, 4-5 3Pt) to go with two boards and two assists across 17 minutes in Tuesday's 93-92 win over the Pistons.
Impact: It was just the third time all season Blake reached double figures in the scoring column. He's been consistently seeing minutes in the teens behind Reggie Jackson all season, but Blake's marginal role will likely diminish almost entirely when Brandon Jennings (Achilles) returns to action. Jennings is targeting the Dec. 29 game against the Knicks for his season debut.
Rotowire: Nov 13 / 9:50a ET
News: Blake has averaged 15 minutes, 3.3 points, 3.3 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game so far for the Pistons.
Impact: Blake missed most of the preseason due to a concussion, which may be why his minutes have been limited. However, the point guard isn't expected to see many minutes as long as he is coming off the bench behind Reggie Jackson.
