Description: Detroit PF/C Greg Monroe has been suspended for two games after pleading guilty to a DUI.
Insight: The loss of two games shouldn't change his fantasy value over an 82-game schedule. He averaged 15.2 ppg, 9.3 rpg and 2.1 apg last season. Monroe's season debut is now Nov 1 against the Brooklyn Nets.

Description: According to USA Today, Greg Monroe has accepted the Pistons' qualifying offer of $5.5 million.
Insight: Monroe was a restricted free agent this offseason, but rather than sign and offer sheet with another team or a long-term deal with Detroit he's opted to take a one-year deal. He'll become an unrestricted free agent next summer. Monroe, Josh Smith and Andre Drummond did not fit well together last season and the Pistons went 29-53.

Insight: The team would prefer to build around second-year center Andre Drummond. Detroit would be able to match any contract offer Monroe gets on the open market this summer though it doesn't look like they will. The Pistons could also work out a sign and trade deal like the one they pulled off last season to acquire Brandon Jennings from Milwaukee.

With Josh Smith doing his thing and Andre Drummond breaking out before our eyes, Monroe is going to have a hard time even matching last season's production, much less improving on it.

Description: Pistons center Greg Monroe said he expects to play Friday against Dallas after hurting his left ankle in Tuesday's practice and missing Wednesday's game with the Knicks. He'll be a game-time decision.
Insight: If Monroe (16.1 ppg, 9.5 rpg) can't go, Jason Maxiell would become a viable fantasy option as Andre Drummond is still out and Charlie Villanueva is dealing with a hamstring problem.
