Greg Monroe PF/C DET 3 Days

Monroe scored 28 points (9-13 FG, 10-15 FT), and added 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks in 44 minutes against the Knicks Friday.

While Monroe's stat line clearly benefited from the two overtime periods, there may be other important trends at play. Monroe has posted three straight double-doubles since the trade deadline shook up the Pistons' roster and brought in Reggie Jackson. Monroe saw a huge boost in performance the last time the Pistons shook things up, then by releasing Josh Smith, and it is possible that these moves may could also have some impact on his performance. Alternatively, however, this could just be a hot streak with some coincidental timing.

Monroe will not be traded before the Feb. 19 trade deadline, Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News reports. "It's not gonna happen," Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Wednesday. "I don't know where Greg's head will be in the offseason, but we're still hopeful of Greg Monroe for the long term. And with him going into free agency, you won't get a lot, maybe a pick. I'm not gonna walk in that locker room and give up a piece like that and then tell the guys we're trying to make the playoffs. They deserve the chance to ride this out. You never say never to anything, but I can tell you about 99.9 percent, Greg Monroe's not going anywhere."With the word of Van Gundy, Monroe is locked in as a primary piece for the Pistons this season and the foreseeable future. Monroe will remain a must-start player for the rest of the season as long as he stay healthy.

Monroe scored 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 FT) with nine rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

He's been on a serious roll lately, averaging 16.5 points and 12.8 boards over his last 10 games while shooting 51.5% from the floor.

Monroe finished with 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot in Wednesday's win over the Orlando Magic.

Monroe has now posted three impressive double-doubles in a row, averaging 17.3 points and 14.3 rebounds over that span. He can be counted on as a double-double machine, as he's now averaging 15.1 points and 10.0 rebounds per game on the season. He only played 25 minutes in this game, but was still very productive and should get closer to 30 minutes on a nightly basis, so don't read too much into the lower minutes total.
