The Detroit Pistons continue their road trip Monday night with a visit to the Verizon Center to play the Washington Wizards (11-37), who are playing on the third night of back-to-back-to-back.

Detroit (16-32) recently completed a five-game road trip, before returning home for a beat down at the hands of the Miami Heat, then hopping back on the road for another loss in New York to the Knicks.

In the last meeting between the two teams, the Pistons lost 88-77 at home to the Wizards. Former Georgetown Hoyas star Greg Monroe will be playing in the Verizon Center for just the second time since leaving Georgetown for the NBA. He is averaging 16.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per game for the Central Division bottom-dwellars.
