Pistons' Jon Leuer: Starting Monday
Leuer is starting Monday's game against Philadelphia, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Leuer will start in place Blake Griffin, who won't play Monday due to rest. With Griffin out Leuer can expect to see heavy minutes Monday, but it's unlikely the big man will hold much value going forward as Griffin's expected to return for Wednesday's game against the Hornets....

Pistons' Luke Kennard: Starting Monday
Kennard will start Monday's game against Philadelphia, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
With a number of regulars out, the Pistons will pivot to a backcourt of Kennard and Reggie Jackson, with Bruce Brown at the three, Jon Leuer at the four and Andre Drummond at the five.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Not expected to play Monday
Johnson (knee) said he doesn't expect to play Monday against the 76ers, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.
It sounds like Johnson will miss a third straight game as he continues to nurse a sore knee. It's worth noting that he was able to test his knee out during pregame warmups Monday, suggesting he's getting closer to a return. Johnson's next chance to play will come Wednesday against Hornets.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Won't play Monday
Johnson (knee) will not play Monday against the 76ers, Vincent Ellis of the Free Press reports.
Johnson was initially deemed a game-time call, but he's now been ruled out for what will be his third straight absence. The Pistons will be a bit shorthanded up front Monday with Blake Griffin sitting out to rest.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Game-time call Monday
Johnson (knee) will be a game-time decision Monday against Philadelphia, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Johnson is still dealing with knee soreness that forced him to miss the past two games. His status should clear up closer to tipoff after he tests the issue out during warmups.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Reggie Bullock: Listed as out
Bullock (ankle) will not play Monday against Philadelphia.
Bullock is listed as out on the Pistons' initial injury report, and Monday will mark his fourth straight absence as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle. Expect Bruce Brown and Luke Kennard to pick up increased minutes on the win in Bullock's stead.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Will get night off
Griffin is listed as out for rest purposes on the Pistons' initial injury report ahead of Monday's game against the 76ers.
The decision comes as a bit of a surprise, though the Pistons are playing on the second night of a back-to-back, and Griffin has played 38 minutes in consecutive contests. In his absence Monday, expect some combination of Jon Leuer, Glenn Robinson, and Stanley Johnson (knee) -- if he's cleared to play -- to see increased minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Drops 35 in loss
Griffin had 35 points (13-25 FG, 4-9 3PT, 5-8 FT) and five rebounds in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
Both Griffin and Andre Drummond had big nights, but it ultimately wasn't enough to outduel the Pelicans, as Detroit got just nine combined points from its other three starters.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Big double-double in loss
Drummond had 23 points (10-23 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-6 FT) and 19 rebounds in Sunday's loss to the Pelicans.
Drummond went through a mini-slump to begin the month, but he's since turned in a pair of strong outings. The big man had 21 points and 10 boards against Philadelphia on Friday, and his 23 field goal attempts Sunday established a new season high.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Reggie Bullock: Out Sunday
Bullock (ankle) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
As expected, Bullock will be missing his third straight game due to a left ankle sprain. Teammate Bruce Brown will be starting in his place.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bruce Brown: Will start Sunday
Brown will start again Sunday against the Pelicans, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Brown will once again be in the starting lineup when the Pistons face the Pelicans on Sunday due to teammate Reggie Bullock (ankle) still not fully healthy. In his last start, Brown logged seven points and five rebounds in 32 minutes of action Friday.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Officially ruled out
Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
As expected, Johnson is set to miss a second straight game as he continues to battle knee soreness. Look for Bruce Brown to see increased run with Johnson unavailable and Reggie Bullock (ankle) listed as doubtful. Johnson's next chance to take the court will come Monday against the 76ers....

Pistons' Reggie Bullock: Game-time decision Sunday
Bullock (ankle) will be a game-time decision but is considered doubtful Sunday against New Orleans, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
After missing the last two games due to a left ankle sprain, Bullock may be in line to play Sunday against the Pelicans as he will ultimately be a game-time decision. The former North Carolina star is currently dropping 10.1 points and 2.4 assists over 18 outings this season. If Bullock is sidelined for a third straight game however, Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard are candidates to see an extended role Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Unlikely to play Sunday
Coach Dwane Casey said Johnson (knee) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Pelicans, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
It sounds like Johnson will miss a second consecutive game as he continues to deal with a sore knee. Bruce Brown should once again benefit from increased minutes in place of Johnson.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Shakes off brief rebounding slump
Drummond scored 21 points (7-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-7 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes during Friday's 117-111 loss to the 76ers.
After managing what was, for Drummond, a meager 14 total boards over the last two games, he bounced back with his 18th double-double of the season. The center has remained a terror on the defensive end, however, recording multiple steals and/or multiple blocks for the sixth time in the last eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Pours in team-high 31
Griffin scored 31 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 17-24 FT) while adding 12 rebounds and six assists in 38 minutes during Friday's 117-111 loss to the 76ers.
It was far from a flawless performance -- Griffin committed four turnovers and five fouls, including a technical late in the fourth quarter -- but the 29-year-old still set new career highs in made and attempted FTs while delivering his 12th double-double of the season, as well as scoring at least 20 points for the sixth straight game....
