Pistons' Tobias Harris: Will start for rest of season

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Friday that Harris would be the Pistons' starting power forward for the remainder of the season, Jake Chapman of the Pistons Radio Network reports.

After opening the season as a starter, Harris has largely served as the Pistons' sixth man since Christmastime, but Van Gundy began tinkering with his lineups last week following a blowout loss to the Pacers. Harris started the team's subsequent three contests before moving back to the bench Wednesday against the Jazz in favor of Jon Leuer, but after the Pistons suffered another decisive loss in that contest, it appears Van Gundy now plans to stick with Harris on the top unit on a more permanent basis. The decision shouldn't have a significant impact on Harris' fantasy value, as his averages as a starter have been relatively on par with what he's provided in a bench role this season.
