But when the Swedes participate in the Eurobasket 2013 Qualifiers, from mid-August through mid-September, Jerebko won't be wearing one. “I'm very disappointed,” he said. “Of course, I want to represent my country and play. But I'm looking forward to next summer and joining them again, and I wish them all the luck this summer. I'm definitely going to keep a close eye on it. “I know my teammates, on that team, will understand my decision after coming off an injury like that, so I'm not really worried about it. I'm just looking forward to playing with them next summer and I wish them all the luck.” Booth Newspapers

Jerebko shot 8-for-14 from the field — including 3 of 4 from 3-point range — and scored 16 points in the first half as Detroit built a 52-44 advantage at the intermission. “Jonas is great,” said coach Lawrence Frank. “One of the things that was a consistent thing was how hard he worked at rehab. He basically lived with Arnie Kander. It speaks volumes about his dedication to come back from an injury like that. Meeting Jonas and seeing how hard he works you can see why. “When you look at the two preseason games and now we've played four regular-season games, each game he gains more confidence and more rhythm and he looks more and more comfortable out there. That's an encouraging sign.” Booth Newspapers

The Pistons saw enough in his promising rookie season that he signed a four-year, $18-million deal before the start of camp, but Jerebko admitted at media day Wednesday that he had a small case of jitters before his first scrimmage this week. "First scrimmage -- I'm not going to lie -- I was a little nervous, and I had a few decisions that weren't the usual decision for me. But right now I'm feeling great," Jerebko said. "I don't feel rusty, but we'll see when the games start. "My first game might be a little rusty, but I'm feeling great. I don't feel like I've been away from the game at all. I watched 82 games from the side, so I just kind of feel like trying to play smarter." Detroit Free Press
