Alex Acker's hopes of making the Detroit Pistons took a hit when he learned a knee injury would likely keep him from participating in summer league games.

Acker, a Pistons second-round pick in 2005 who spent his rookie season with the team before playing in Greece and Spain the past two winters, is again experiencing problems with the same knee that he injured last summer. The fact he can't participate in summer league games means he's probably headed back to Europe for a third straight season.

Even though the Pistons did make Alex Acker a qualifying offer which makes him a restricted free agent, he's not a lock to make the Pistons team next year.

Being the 60th overall pick in the 2005 draft, the numbers are always going to be against him. "I don't worry about that," he said. "I just worry about me, and my game." Heading into Tuesday, Acker was the summer league's third-leading scorer, averaging 23 points, to go along with 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

Acker won't have much of a role with Detroit down the homestretch. "Going down there, they're looking at me like I'm a veteran, even though I'm a rookie," said Acker, who played 48 minutes at point guard last week. "I'm like, 'I'm still a rookie!' But it was a good experience."
