Detroit down to three-man backcourt?

Due to several factors, Detroit could be down to a three-man guard rotation for its game with Atlanta tonight.

David Mayo of mlive.com writes that the one-game suspension of Will Bynum and the uncertain status of Brandon Knight (knee) could limit the Pistons to Jose Calderon, Rodney Stuckey and Kim English as the main guard options against the Hawks.

In a pinch, Kyle Singler is also capable of sliding over to the two, where he played for much of the season prior to the big trade that shipped out Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye and brought in Calderon.

If English is forced to play an extended role, it will be a bit of a gamble considering how little he's played for much of the season (9.3 mpg in 25 games). But at this point, if Knight cannot go the Pistons may not have much of a choice other than relying on Calderon and Stuckey to play huge minutes.
