The Pistons back up center hasn’t played since a 113-96 win against Philadelphia last Saturday.
Per Pistons.com, he won't be playing again until at least the All-Star break with a knee injury:
Course of treatment for the injury will include rest and rehabilitation under the direction of Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander. Harrellson will be re-evaluated following the NBA All-Star break.
Harrellson, who has averaged 2.9 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 10 minutes per game, has been a pleasant surprise off the bench, providing some interior defense and outside shooting – two areas in which the Pistons have been lacking this season.
Jorts has endeared himself to Pistons fans due to his style of play and demeanor, although Jonas Jerebko has been efficient in limited minutes, Harrellson is still a better option when healthy and Detroit will be missing his production off the bench in the upcoming games.
Pistons have three more home games -- Denver, San Antonio and Cleveland -- before the All Star Break, hopefully the jean-short wearing bigman will be back in action on February 18th against the Charlotte Bobcats. Until then, we’ll have to get used to seeing Jonas Jerebko playing minutes other than in garbage time.
