Greg Monroe PF/C DET 12 Days

Monroe (knee) will not play Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

Monroe suffered a strained knee during Monday's practice, and he'll be held out Tuesday. With the Pistons hitting the road for a one-game road trip (Wednesday @PHI), it's possible Monroe could be held out for another game, though the team is yet to say as much.

Monroe scored 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-3 FT) with 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in the loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

Monroe may forced to to carry the scoring and rebounding load if Andre Drummond ends of up missing extended time due to the concussion he suffered on Saturday. Monroe's rebounding numbers have fallen off a bit over the past week, but is a good bet to maintain his double-double average with upside minus Drummond. He's a must start in all formats.

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.
