Kennard will come off the bench in Monday's Game 4 against the Bucks, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
After starting Games 2 and 3, Kennard will return to coming off the bench with Bruce Brown moving back into the starting five. Coach Dwane Casey is making the move to provide the second unit with a little more firepower, as Kennard has been one of the few bright spots for the Pistons this series. Through the first three games, he's averaging 16.3 points and 5.0 rebounds over 33.3 minutes per game.
Kennard produced 19 points (6-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 120-99 loss to Milwaukee.
Kennard replaced Bruce Brown in the starting lineup Wednesday, emerging as the teams leading scorer with 19 points including four triples. Kennard has had an interesting backend to the season, flashing his fantasy upside on many occasions. He has also struggled mightily at times and the inconsistent playing time has certainly been a source of frustration. Given his performance, it would seem likely Kennard starts again Saturday but the Pistons are going to need a lot more from their starters as a unit if they are to push the Bucks.

Kennard (foot) will play in Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
In a surprising development, Kennard will be active for Wednesday's game after he was originally deemed doubtful.

Kennard came off the bench Sunday to score 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting. He has been better over the last couple of games after falling into a slump prior to that.
