AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Orlando star Dwight Howard is out of the lineup again Tuesday night against the Detroit Pistons because of back spasms.

Guard Jameer Nelson and forward Ryan Anderson are also out with a sore left calf and sprained right ankle. Detroit guard Rodney Stuckey is out with a sore left hamstring.

Howard also missed Orlando's game Sunday against Denver.

Ben Gordon started in Stuckey's place for the Pistons. Glen Davis started at center for Orlando in Howard's place, while Chris Duhon and Quentin Richardson replaced Nelson and Anderson.
