2023 Fantasy Outlook
Stewart was shut down for the final 21 games of 2022-23 due to a pair of injuries, but he finished with career highs in points (11.3) and minutes (28.3) per game across 50 appearances (47 starts). The 2020 No. 16 overall pick added 8.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks per contest and made a concerted effort to develop a perimeter shot, though he only made 32.7 percent of his career-high 4.1 three-pointers per game and finished with a career-low shooting percentage (44.2). He also attempted a career-high 3.0 three throws per game, so despite spending more time on the perimeter, Stewart was still aggressive and took advantage of his athleticism. Stewart showed enough to remain a focal point in the frontcourt. But while he's probably more effective at center, the Washington product will likely spend most of his minutes at power forward as long as Jalen Duren and James Wiseman are available. Stewart's change in style bodes well for his long-term development, but it may impact his short-term fantasy value. Moving away from the basket reduced his rebounding and field-goal numbers, the two things that he excelled at early in his career, but he has a high upside if he can put everything together. Stewart was relatively healthy in his first two seasons, and his absence at the end of last season was presumably precautionary, so there shouldn't be any concerns about his health moving forward.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

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. 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.

February 22, 2024
The NBA announced Thursday that Stewart (ankle) is being suspended for three games due to his altercation with Suns center Drew Eubanks on Feb. 14, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Stewart was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge and issued a citation after he allegedly punched Eubanks in the Footprint Center parking lot ahead of the Pistons' game against the Suns on Feb. 14. While Stewart's court date was initially set for Feb. 23, the case has been dismissed by the Phoenix Municipal Court. Ausar Thompson, Troy Brown and Mike Muscala are candidates to receive increased playing time in his absence. Stewart's suspension will begin with Thursday's matchup versus Indiana, and his first opportunity to return will be against Chicago on Tuesday.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Linked to three teams
CDetroit Pistons
December 18, 2023
Stewart, who is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury, is drawing interest from the Celtics, Thunder and Mavericks, James Edwards of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Stewart is under contract with the Pistons through the 2025-26 season, but he also has a player option for another year. The Pistons have lost 23 straight games, and Stewart's long-term fit next to Jalen Duren is not ideal. The Pistons also have Ausar Thompson, who can slide in as a power forward. Stewart has struggled mightily in recent games with averages of 6.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in his last five outings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
After being drafted No. 16 overall in 2020, Stewart composed an encouraging rookie campaign where he ranked 153rd in per-game fantasy production over just 21.4 minutes. As a result, fantasy managers were hoping for a spike in output from Stewart last season. They didn't get it. While Gafford increased his minutes to 25.6 per game, Stewart shot worse from the field (51.0 percent) and his block rate decreased (1.1 per game). Combined with his 8.3 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists, the Washington product ranked worse in per-game value (172nd). Stewart is struggling to make an impact offensively. His weak finishing ability is a concern given that he plays as an undersized (6-foot-9) center. He shot just 58 percent at the rim - in the eighth percentile for players classified as bigs. A three-point shot might be coming - 36-for-109 (33.0%) for his career - but it's starting to feel more necessary than complementary. His main strength right now is offensive rebounding. He averaged 4.5 offensive boards per 36 minutes. But that alone doesn't guarantee him big minutes as the Pistons explore other options. Over the summer, Detroit traded for Nerlens Noel and Bojan Bogdanovic, signed Marvin Bagley and drafted Jalen Duren. It's reasonable to expect a player as young as Stewart to improve, but if it doesn't come with a minutes bump, it probably won't result in standard fantasy-league relevance.
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.
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.
