Sklava Kravtsov is the only player on the Detroit Pistons who has yet to have played in a game this season.
"It was not what I expected at all," Kravtsov said on Friday. "But this is life. You can not stop because of that. You should prove yourself at the practices and keep working to find yourself, and sometimes a chance comes to you. You just have to be ready for it."
Lawrence Frank has said that he would begin to play Kravtsov when he's ready.
"I think I'm ready," he said. "I've worked hard this month. I rested a lot on my body. I worked on my skills with Roy (Rogers, Pistons assistant coach). I think I get much better. And I think I can show something right now. I think I could help a lot. I just need to show it."
