Pistons' Monroe returns against Mavericks


Posted Mar 8, 2013 8:04 PM

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit's Greg Monroe is back in the lineup for Friday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The 6-foot-11 Monroe missed Wednesday's game against New York with a sprained left ankle. Detroit remains without coach Lawrence Frank, who is missing his second straight game because of a personal matter.

Monroe is averaging 16.1 points and 9.5 rebounds on the season. Detroit, which is still without rookie big man Andre Drummond, has lost six of seven.

Drummond has a stress fracture in his back.

Assistant coach Brian Hill is filling in for Frank.
