Grant Hill and Jerry Stackhouse provide a solid 1-2 scoring punch as the Pistons post a record of 42-40 finishing in 4th place. However, as the season wound down Hill would suffer a devastating ankle injury. Without Hill the Pistons would be swept in the playoff sin 3 straight games by the Miami Heat. Following the season the Pistons would have t make some tough decisions, as Grant Hill is not resigned. It would end up being the right decision as Hill would never be the same player again as his ankle injury would limit him to just a handful of games over the next few seasons.
