Monroe Starting Over Maxiell

The Pistons are now using rookie Greg Monroe as their starting power forward. He takes over for veteran Jason Maxiell, who could be completely out of the rotation. Little-used reserve Chris Wilcox has played well of late and could continue to see additional minutes off Detroit's bench.

John Kuester, Pistons Head Coach, continues to scramble trying to establish a set rotation. Injured veteran Jonas Jerebko hopes to return at some point this season, perhaps as early as February. It's likely Kuester would look to reinsert Jerebko into the starting lineup at power forward.

Of all the Pistons capable of manning the power forward spot, veteran Charlie Villanueva has played the most minutes and is quietly having an impressive second season in the Motor City. Yet, Kuester will continue to keep him in a reserve role to help balance out scoring on the second unit.
