2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 16th overall pick in the 2020 draft, Stewart made steady progress throughout his rookie season and worked himself into fantasy relevance. While he only ended up ranking 153rd in per-game fantasy production on the season, he ranked 104th from March 11 onward and 80th from April 8 onward. The center started 11 of his final 19 appearances, and during that span, he averaged 11.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.1 assists in 26.5 minutes. He also shot a nice 53.9 percent from the field and a passable-for-a-center 70.0 percent from the charity stripe. Despite standing just 6-foot-8, Stewart was able to rank 17th in the NBA in total rebound percentage (17.3) and eighth in block percentage (5.2). Even as a low-usage offensive player, those two stats alone suggest Stewart has the potential to be a great fantasy asset. Heading into 2021-22, the Pistons sent Mason Plumlee packing to Charlotte but brought in Kelly Olynyk. That complicates Stewart's path to a consistent 30 minutes per night, but Olynyk is also capable of playing power forward and pushing Jerami Grant down to small forward. And considering Detroit's status as a rebuild, Stewart's minutes should be an organizational priority. Given that he showed clear upside to rank inside the top 80 in just 26.5 minutes per game, fantasy managers have justification to draft him around that mark. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Isaiah Stewart II was born May 22, 2001in Rochester, New York and grew up playing soccer and boxing. His father, Dela, is a native of Jamaica who eventually moved to New York where he met Isaiah's mother, Shameka Holloway. In the fifth grade, Isaiah focused on basketball and was roughly six feet tall at age 12. Stewart initially attended McQuaid Jesuit High School in Brighton, New York for his first two years of high school. He then transferred to La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana. In his senior year, Stewart led La Lumiere to a 30-1 record and won the Naismith Prep Player of the Year and Mr. Basketball USA awards. He was also a member of the USA U-17 team that won a gold medal at the 2018 U-17 FIBA World Cup. For college, Stewart chose the University of Washington, where he earned All-Pac-12 First Team honors during his one season at Washington. Stewart wears the number 33 jersey to honor Jamaican NBA star Patrick Ewing. Fans can follow the 6-foot-9 big man on Twitter @Dreamville_33.

College/International Summary

Stewart was a double-double machine during his first and only season with the Huskies, collecting 14 total on the year. His best all-around performance came Jan. 18 against Oregon, as Stewart posted 25 points, a career-high 19 rebounds and five blocks. He saved his best scoring performance for the last game of the year, tallying 29 in a loss to Arizona. When it was all said and done, Stewart led the Pac-12 conference in two-pointers made (187), free throws made (154) and total rebounds (281). He was also strong on the defensive end, rejecting 2.1 shots per contest -- good for third in the conference. Stewart racked up the accolades at the end of the year as well, making both the All-Pac-12 first team and Pac-12 All-Freshman team. There was little doubt the big man was going pro, and Stewart made that official April 1.

'Ahead of schedule' in rehab
CDetroit Pistons
August 15, 2021
Stewart (ankle) said he is "ahead of schedule" as he works back from a July ankle injury sustained while scrimmaging with Team USA, Omari Sankofa of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Speaking to Sankofa in Las Vegas on Saturday, Stewart confirmed that he will not participate in any of the Pistons' Summer League games, though he noted that his recovery from the ankle injury is going well. "I'm doing pretty good," Stewart said. "I'm ahead of schedule, but they're not rushing me back or anything. They want me ready and 100% healthy or training camp going into the season." The big man, who suffered the injury back on July 8, said he's yet to return to playing five-on-five and has not taken contact during on-court work. Stewart led all rookies in total blocks and total rebounds last season and was one of the few bright spots for one of the NBA's worst teams. He'll likely be set for a larger and more consistent workload in 2021-22, though his exact role remains clouded after the Pistons swapped out Mason Plumlee for veteran Kelly Olynyk this offseason.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
After grabbing Killian Hayes at No. 7 in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Pistons opted to add a big man in Stewart. The freshman out of Washington was one of the top high school prospects in the country, and he delivered 17.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 32 games for the Huskies. For fantasy purposes, this is a good landing spot for Stewart given the Pistons' relative lack of depth and -- more importantly -- their status as a rebuilding franchise. His potential fantasy ceiling should become clearer once we know more about the final status of the roster heading into training camp.
