It’s unclear how long Leuer will be out, but coach Stan Van Gundy indicated it’s likely not serious, but they’re being cautious. While Leuer is sidelined, Tobias Harris will start in his place. “Obviously, we’re concerned; we don’t think it’s any major problem but he’s got some fluid in there,” Van Gundy said following Tuesday morning’s shootaround at Golden 1 Center. “(Team physician) Dr. (Stephen) Lemos will look at the MRI today and then we’ll get a better idea of where we’re headed. From a comfort standpoint, he’s not able to go tonight.”

Jon Leuer was able to start Sunday’s double-overtime marathon game, but apparently couldn’t finish it. The Detroit Pistons forward came out of with 5:45 left in the first quarter of the 125-124 win over the Portland Trail Blazers complaining of a sore right knee. No official details were given Sunday on the severity of the injury or Leuer’s condition, but Pistons president-coach Stan Van Gundy said early indication showed nothing too serious. “I only got the word that was put out right away — that they were going to try and get an MRI here in the second half,” Van Gundy said. “There didn’t seem like there was any ligament or meniscus damage. “He did have some fluid in there. … But I didn’t have a follow-up email.”
