Leuer compiled 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 11 rebounds, four assists and one steal across 33 minutes in Friday's 108-97 win over the Clippers. The Pistons' signing of Leuer was a rather low-key move this offseason, but the 27-year-old has proven to be an outstanding addition. Though he hasn't started in any of the Pistons' 17 games, he's seeing starter-level playing time, averaging 10.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 26.9 minutes per contest. The big man is worth a look in deeper leagues where he's available, as his role isn't likely to change in the near future.
Leuer tallied 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Knicks. Leuer had his best scoring performance of the season, putting up season highs in both points and field goal percentage. The 27-year-old also got his three-point shooting back on track, after going 0-7 over his previous three games. Leuer is averaging 26.8 minutes per game and should continue to be the Pistons top player off the bench.
Leuer recorded 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds and one steal across 26 minutes in Saturday's 106-95 win over the Nuggets. It's only the first double-double of the season for Leuer, but he's otherwise been excellent as the Pistons' first big man off the bench. Leuer has topped 11 points in five of the last six games and should continue to offer the Pistons strong three-point shooting and quality rebounding whenever he takes the court.
Leuer registered 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes in Monday's 114-82 loss to the Pistons. Leuer has topped double digits in the scoring column in three straight games, shooting 60 percent or better from the field in all of those contests. The veteran forward has consistently received between 23 and 29 minutes off the bench throughout the season, and it looks like coach Stan Van Gundy will continue to rely heavily on him as his top big man off the bench.
Leuer scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 103-86 win over the Nuggets. It was his best scoring performance on the young season, as Leuer's role on the Pistons' second unit more typically involves playing tough defense and crashing the glass. He's getting consistent, and significant, minutes though, and if Leuer can hang onto this role in the frontcourt rotation he should be able to top his previous career highs of 8.5 points and 5.6 boards a game, both set last season.
