For those wondering, Charlie Villanueva is still in front of Vernon Macklin in the Pistons' pecking order.

Given that Villanueva had played in only four games all season (he missed time with an ankle injury), it was fair to wonder about that after Macklin returned from an impressive D-League stint Sunday at Miami.

But Macklin has been inactive for two games and Villanueva got off the bench for 18 minutes in Monday's 119-89 blowout loss to the Magic.

Villanueva scored 10 points and knocked down his first three-pointers in his fifth game of the season.
