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.

In his last five games, he has averaged 15.4 points, 11.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and has at least one steal and one block in each game. Monroe is helping fantasy teams across the board.

Monroe continues to roll along, and with the Pistons suddenly looking like they could make some noise in the Eastern Conference playoffs, the pending free agent's chances of being traded would appear to be shrinking. Expect him to remain a nightly double-double threat going forward.

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.
