Greg Monroe PF/C DET 20 Days

Monroe double-doubled in Tuesday's win over the Spurs, finishing with 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

Monroe is starting to gain some traction as a member of the starting lineup. He's now recorded three straight double-doubles, averaging 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds over his last three games. Monroe will continue to see plenty of minutes with Josh Smith out of the picture, so we'll see if he can continue his recent production against a tough Dallas Mavericks team Wednesday.

Monroe scored nine points with nine rebounds in 21 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win against the Magic.

Monroe has been up and down in the three games since he moved into the Pistons' starting lineup in the wake of Josh Smith's release, though Tuesday's low minutes were likely the result of the lopsided nature of the game. With the Pistons' thin front court, Monroe should see all the minutes he can handle going forward, which could translate into big production as Monroe enters restricted free agency this offseason.

Monroe moved into the starting lineup against the Pacers Friday, replacing the waived Josh Smith. Monroe scored 19 points (7-11 FG, 5-8 FT) and added 15 rebounds, one assist, three steals, and a block in 31 minutes.

Monroe had struggled somewhat coming off the bench in the Pistons' crowded frontcourt. Smith was released Monday, creating a major opportunity for Monroe, who seized it Friday. Monroe's value is much higher now than it was just one week ago.

Monroe scored 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 FT) with seven rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes off the bench Friday.

He's slowly adjusting to life off the bench, averaging 15.8 points and 8.0 boards over his last 10 games, but Monroe isn't seeing enough minutes to pull down the consistent double-doubles he was producing at the beginning of the season.

Monroe came off the bench again on Sunday in an uninspiring game that resulted in a loss. He closed the night out with 12 points (3-7 FG, 6-9 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

This is now the sixth game the Pistons have played since moving Monroe to the bench and things have not gotten better for the Georgetown product. For the most part he's had a hard time scoring, with his best game coming against Boston's depleted front court. Additionally, the Pistons have lost every game during that span, so don't be surprised if the team doesn't end the year with this as their final rotation.

Monroe will come off the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Monroe will relinquish his starting spot, opening the door for Kyle Singler to get the nod at small forward. This is already the second time this week coach Stan Van Gundy has used this starting lineup, but it remains unclear whether the switch will be permanent.

Monroe responded after being moved to a bench role by coach Stan Van Gundy. He finished with 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 FT), 10 rebounds, and one block in 31 minutes on Sunday.

Monroe was coming off a pair of forgettable performances that likely provoked his demotion. He still played over 30 minutes and if he continues to have nights like this he won't be at risk for any decline in value. Check before the Pistons take court Tuesday against the Lakers, as this move may not be permanent and Monroe may earn his starting role back.

Monroe will come off the bench against the Warriors on Sunday, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Monroe will come off the bench for the second time this season, as coach Stan Van Gundy will shuffle the lineup with the Pistons riding a seven-game losing streak. Kyle Singler gets the nod at small forward, pushing Josh Smith to power forward, while Andre Drummond remains at center. Van Gundy has not stated whether the move will be permanent, and that will likely be determined by how well Detroit starts against the Warriors on Sunday.

Monroe scored 18 points (7-17 FG, 4-5 FT) with 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Suns.

It's his sixth double-double of the season. The Pistons' three-big lineup hasn't done Andre Drummond or Josh Smith any favors so far this season, but Monroe has been thriving.

Monroe had 16 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 FT) with 11 rebounds in 32 minutes in the Saturday loss to Memphis.

Monroe has been playing well with 16.6 points on 50 percent from the field with 10.0 rebounds in his last five games. The Pistons have only won one of those games, so coach Stan Van Gundy may need to tinker around Monroe.
