Jonas Jerebko could be the odd man out of the Pistons rotation, according to the team's website.
He's not really capable of playing small forward, so it'll be tough for him to get run with Josh Smith looking to get more run at power forward. Jerebko had a career-best season from beyond the arc, which will be a big factor in his outlook this season. He's not worth drafting in any league right now. Sep 22 - 7:30 PM

Jonas Jerebko said he's hoping to fill the role as a stretch four for the Pistons this season.

While coach Stan Van Gundy said Jerebko could be part of the team's core, it's not going to be easy with Josh Smith expected to get more run at power forward. Jerebko is only worth a late-round flier in deep leagues for now.

Jonas Jerebko was one of seven players Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy identified as the team's "core."

Van Gundy is pleased with Jerebko's development, both physically and mentally, and his ability to shoot from outside should endear him to his new coach. Jerebko struggled last season, playing only 11.6 minutes per game, but he shot 41.9 percent from downtown and is worth keeping in mind as a flier pick in fantasy drafts.

Jonas Jerebko will pick up his $4.5 million player option for 2014-15, the final year of his contract with Detroit.

The 27-year-old is coming off a tough season during which he averaged 4.2 points in 11.6 minutes per game. "I feel like I can do much better than what I got the opportunity to show this past season," said Jerebko. He voiced his support for coach Stan Van Gundy, whose proclivity for 3-point shooters may give Jerebko a chance to revitalize his NBA career.

Jonas Jerebko played 24 minutes vs. the Nets on Friday, scoring 16 points with five boards, four assists and one 3-pointer.

It's the third time in his last five games in which he's played at least 24 minutes. In that span, Jerebko averaged 6.4 points, 4.6 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.6 triples in 18.4 minutes. Obviously, those aren't awe-inspiring numbers, so fantasy owners can ignore him for the most part.

Jonas Jerebko had a big game on Saturday with 22 points, nine rebounds and five 3-pointers, but it appears to have been nothing more than a fluke

He had four points and eight rebounds in 19 minutes on Wednesday, and seven points, eight rebounds and a 3-pointer on Monday. Keep an eye on him if you're in a deep league, but at this point, we're having trouble coming up with reasons to pick him up.

Jonas Jerebko came out of nowhere to hit 8-of-12 shots and five 3-pointers to tie his career high with 22 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

He was just 1-of-4 from the line, but who cares? We hadn't even blurbed Jerebko since early December, which was about the last time he made any noise. This was his third game of the entire season with double-digit scoring, and while it's possible he could finish on a high note, we need to see what happens in his next couple games before telling you to give him a look.

Jonas Jerebko scored 12 points off Detroit's bench on Sunday, and fellow reserve F Charlie Villanueva scored 10 points in the losing effort.

On Saturday it was Josh Harrellson who got hot, scoring 10 points, but Jorts was scoreless tonight and all three of the Pistons' reserve bigs belong on the waiver wire.

Jonas Jerebko did not see any minutes on Monday as the Pistons lost to the Blazers.

Maurice Cheeks decided to go with what was essentially an eight-man rotation on Monday, and Jerebko and Luigi Datome were the victims of that decision. Jerebko is only averaging seven minutes per game this season anyway, so while the "DNP Coach's Decision" next to his name comes as no surprise, it should serve to underscore the lack of usefulness that Jerebko provides to fantasy owners.

Jonas Jerebko was held out as a precaution on Tuesday, but he'll be part of Detroit's rotation for Thursday's exhibition.

Jerebko will return but Charlie Villanueva will get a day of planned rest, according to Mo Cheeks. The two veterans are vying for backup forward minutes in a crowded rotation, a situation custom-made to scare away fantasy owners.

Jonas Jerebko scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help Sweden defeat Russia in first-round EuroBasket competition on Saturday.

Jeffery Taylor, who leads EuroBasket with 4.7 turnovers per game, finished with 25 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals. Alexey Shved led Russia with 15 points, but he also had five turnovers and zero assists. Russia has an 0-3 record in Group B games and is headed for an early exit.

Jonas Jerebko is excited about his fresh start under Mo Cheeks.

"It feels good, I want to start playing right now and it's June," he said. "I'm just excited for a fresh start." After being glued to the bench under Lawrence Frank, we don't blame him. "I'm not going to lie. It was up and down," he said of his benching and inconsistent minutes. Jerebko and Cheeks have already spoken, so it looks like their relationship is off to a solid start.

Jonas Jerebko did not get along with Lawrence Frank, and he's hopeful that Maurice Cheeks will give him a chance to play consistently.

"I’ve met Mo Cheeks, we’ve talked a few times," he said. "He’s a great guy and a great coach. We’ll see what happens." Regarding Frank, Jerebko said, "it was a tough year, looking back on it. I'm excited for a fresh start and I know my teammates are too." Part of why Frank was fired was due to his "poor player relations."

Jonas Jerebko will play for the Swedish National team at the Eurobasket tournament.

Jerebko turned some heads toward the end of the season and he should be in line for a much more consistent role next year considering the Pistons could use him as a valuable reserve off the bench.

Jonas Jerebko played 28 minutes off the bench on Friday and had 21 points, eight boards, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers against the Bobcats.

Yes, this line comes against the Bobcats and they give up big lines to plenty of guys. Although, Jerebko's value has potentially skyrocketed with Andre Drummond going down with an ankle injury tonight. He could emerge as a must-start player on Monday, so plan accordingly.
