Detroit Pistons star Jerami Grant plans to make his return to action on Saturday on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Most Improved Player of the Year candidate has been out since April 26 with right knee soreness.

Grant, 27, spent his first two seasons in the league in Philadelphia.

The Pistons are 19-47, which is the worst record in the Eastern Conference and the second-worst record in the league ahead of the 16-49 Houston Rockets.

It was uncertain if Grant would rejoin the team on the court considering the Pistons have six games remaining on the schedule.

The forward is having a career year in his first season with the Pistons, averaging 22.5 points and 4.6 rebounds.

Grant signed a three-year, $60 million deal with the franchise last offseason.
