    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Out Monday vs. Nets

    Jon Leuer (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason matchup with the Nets, Detroit Pistons radio play-by-play announcer Mark Champion reports.Leuer has missed all of training camp and the preseason thus far with a knee injury, but was able to participate in 5-on-5 work for the first time Sunday. Considering he's just getting reintegrated in scrimmages and full-contact, it's not a huge surprise that Leuer will miss at least one more contest. The Pistons close out the exhibition slate with matchup against the Wizards on Wednesday and the Cavaliers on Friday, so there's still a chance Leuer is able to get on the court at some point prior to the regular-season opener Oct. 17 against the Nets.

    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Upgraded to 5-on-5 work

    Jon Leuer (knee) took part in some 5-on-5 work Sunday, Keith Langlois of Detroit Pistons.com reports.Leuer had surgery on his knee at the start of August and has been limited throughout training camp and the preseason thus far. However, he made a significant jump in his progress with his return to 5-on-5 work Sunday, which now gives him the potential to be cleared for the start of the regular season. Still, considering the lengthy absence, Leuer could be brought along slowly over the next few weeks, so continue to keep an eye on his participation in practice. Once cleared, Leuer should have a regular role in the rotation with the second unit.

    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Will be limited to start camp

    Jon Leuer (knee) will be limited to open training camp, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.Leuer underwent surgery on his right knee back in early August, and while the procedure was considered minor, he's still working through the latter phases of his recovery. The hope is that the Wisconsin product will be at full strength by the regular season opener, but at Monday's media day, Detroit Pistons senior adviser Ed Stefanski confirmed that Leuer is not yet in basketball shape and will use training camp and the preseason to work his way back. "Everything is progressing well in the rehab," Leuer said. "My goal is to be back before the first game, hopefully, the last preseason game."

    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Expected back for season opener

    The Detroit Pistons anticipate that Jon Leuer (knee) will be ready to play by the start of the regular season, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.Leuer underwent surgery Aug. 9 to address a right knee injury, which he sustained during a recent workout. The procedure was apparently more of the clean-up variety rather than reconstructive in nature, so a lengthy recovery timetable doesn't look to be on tap for the 29-year-old. Ellis relays that the Pistons are cautiously optimistic that Leuer will be able to practice when training camp opens, though it seems likely that he'll face limitations on some level if he's deemed ready to go by then. In any case, Leuer doesn't look to be at much risk of missing the games that count, putting him in line to open the season with a regular role on the Pistons' second unit.

    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Will undergo season-ending surgery

    Jon Leuer (ankle) will undergo season-ending surgery on Friday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.Leuer hasn't seen the floor since Oct. 31 and coach Stan Van Gundy said Monday that the power forward is not progressing as well as the team thought he would in his recovery. As a result, the only option for Leuer ends up being surgery, which will effectively end his 2017-18 campaign. Leuer still has two years remaining on his four-year deal he signed with the Detroit Pistons, so he'll look to return for training camp next year at 100 percent.

    Pistons' Jon Leuer: Gets another ankle injection

    Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy revealed Monday that Jon Leuer recently received a second injection in his sprained left knee, Jake Chapman of the Pistons Radio Network reports.Van Gundy acknowledged that Leuer, who hasn't played since Oct. 31 due to the injury, isn't progressing in his recovery as the team had hoped over the last two-plus months. While likely season-ending surgery remains a possibility for Leuer, he'll see if another injection can effectively addressing the lingering soreness and enable him to return to the court later during the campaign. Given his lengthy layoff from on-court action, Leuer probably remains multiple weeks away from appearing in games even if the injection has its desired effect.
