Garza's elevation comes in the wake of the news that starting center Isaiah Stewart (knee) will be out a minimum of one week with a bone bruise. Expect Garza to be a warm body on the bench, rather than a noticeable contributor, with Marvin Bagley III and Kelly Olynyk likely to devour the majority of minutes available due to Stewart's absence.
According to Pistons reporter Lauren Williams, Luka Garza has been assigned to the G League.
On Friday, the Pistons sent Garza back down to the G League after a short stint with the team. The rookie has only played four games with the parent club despite averaging 20.4 points and 8.8 rebounds across eight appearances in the G League.
Luka Garza will likely be available to play in Sunday's contest against the Charlotte Hornets.
Garza was recalled from the Motor City Cruise on Sunday, and it looks like he is going to be available to play against the Hornets. Don't expect the rookie to be a game-changer, but he should see some minutes.
