Prince is listed as the starting small forward for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Dave Pemberton of the Oakland Press reports.

As expected, Prince will make his season debut with the Pistons on Tuesday, and he'll supplant fellow-veteran Caron Butler in the starting lineup. Reports Monday suggested Prince will need to go through shootaround before an official decision on his status is made, but the fact that he's already listed as a starter is a solid indication that he'll take the floor. Prince hasn't been much of a fantasy contributor this season, but he strung together three straight double-digit scoring games at the end of January, proving that he can still be productive when given the opportunity.

Prince (trade) is expected to make his season debut with the Pistons on Tuesday, and coach Stan Van Gundy is planning on starting Prince at small forward over Caron Butler if Prince is comfortable during Tuesday's shootaround, the Pistons' official site reports.

Even if Prince starts the game, it's hard to imagine him carving out a big enough role to make him of use in standard fantasy leagues. He's simply not aggressive enough of a player on offense. Through 35 games played this season, Prince has averaged 7.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.6 three-pointers on 45 percent shooting from the field and 49 percent shooting from beyond the arc in 24 minutes per game. He's competent from beyond the arc (career 37 percent), but Prince isn't known as a gunner from deep, a trait that most wing players on the Pistons have.
