PASPN.net - Pistons C/PF Greg Monroe Will Be an All-Star Next Year: Fan's Take (Yahoo! Contributor Network)
Greg Monroe News
Trans. Feb 29 6:40 ET (Feb 29 6:40 ET ) It's been a rough season for the Detroit Pistons but not all is lost, as some of their top young players have excelled and shown that they can be building blocks for a future playoff run. The best revelation so far has probably been the play of center/power forward Greg Monroe,...
Greg Monroe hit 7-of-17 shots for 18 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's tough loss to the Suns.
The Scoop:This was a nice bounce-back game for Monroe after his six points and seven rebounds on Monday, and he now has six double-doubles on the season, despite sitting out the first two games due to a suspension. He's averaging 15.6 points and 10.3 rebounds this year. And in case you're wondering, teammate Andre Drummond has just four double-doubles despite playing in two more games, and is averaging 8.7 points and 11.1 rebounds.
The Scoop:This marks Monroe's third consecutive start, and he'll be joined by Brandon Jennings, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Josh Smith, and Andre Drummond. Monroe is averaging 16.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 3.0 assists as a starter, and has a favorable matchup today against the Jazz, as they're currently the worst team in the league at defending the power forward position. Get him in your lineups.
The Scoop:Stan Van Gundy will again roll with his jumbo-lineup of Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, and Andre Drummond. Monroe was fantastic in his last outing, putting up 23 points, 18 rebounds, three assists, and a steal, so get him in your lineups.
The Scoop:The move does make a lot of sense for this matchup, but coach SVG won't reveal his starting lineup yet. Regardless, Monroe will have value this season even he if does come off the bench, but we will monitor this situation closely as tip-off approaches. If Monroe starts, Kyle Singler will take a seat on the bench. Stay tuned.
