The Detroit Pistons will bring back Justin Harper on a second 10-day contract, Keith Langlois reports.

The Pistons are beset by injury issues, including to its lone stretch four in Anthony Tolliver, who is expected to remain out of the lineup for a couple weeks as he recovers from a sprained knee. The Pistons signed Harper for depth at the power forward spot as Tolliver recovers, and he has acquitted himself quite nicely.

Harper, who played with Stan Van Gundy's Magic in 2011-12, is hitting 42.9 percent of his 3-point attempts and has played in three games so far.

The 26-year-old has played 34 games in the D-League this season, averaging 14.8 points and 5 rebounds for the Los Angeles D-Fenders. He also hit 40 percent of his 3s on more than five attempts per game.

It is unclear if the Pistons would be interested in signing Harper through the rest of the year once his second 10-day deal is up. By then, Tolliver will likely be back or close to a return and the team might still be dealing with some depth issues on the wings.

What do you think the Pistons should do with their final roster spot?
