Josh Harrellson has a slight tear in his left meniscus and will go through a rehab session.
He's missed the last two games with knee soreness and the Pistons have pinpointed the problem. He will likely miss an extended period of time, so the Pistons might look to change around their rotation a bit to compensate. The team shouldn't have too much of a problem replacing Harrellson's 9.9 minutes per game.

The Pistons got a lift from Josh Harrellson in Saturday's win, as he came off the bench for a season-high 10 points with two 3-pointers in just 13 minutes.
Jorts even had five rebounds, two assists and three blocks for what was easily his best line of the year. Barring some drastic and unexpected change to his nine minutes per game, however, he's persona non grata in fantasy leagues.

Pistons sign free agent PF Josh Harrellson to a two-year deal.
The man known as 'Jorts' now occupies the 15th roster spot for the Pistons, meaning they're offseason moves have likely come to an end. Harrellson was the MVP of the Chinese Basketball Association with 22 points and 18 rebounds per game last season, and previously played for the Heat in 2012, and the Knicks in 2011. He's never made much of a dent in the NBA, and with Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith around, that shouldn't change this year. Ignore him, but beware that he could become a factor if Drummond has more back issues this season.
