Jeff Pendergraph's natural position is power forward.

He stepped in and started the second half at center in place of the injured Roy Hibbert at Detroit last month.

He surprisingly got playing time at small forward for the first time in his career against the Utah Jazz last weekend.

That's commonly referred to as being a utility player in baseball.

What's it called in basketball?

"Whatever it takes to get on the court," Pendergraph said, laughing. "Whatever the coaches tell me to do, I'll do."
