One minute he's throwing crazy alley-oops, the next he could be lost for the season.
Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings went down in a heap with about a minute left in the third quarter while guarding Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Knight on an inbounds pass. Knight pushed off Jennings to free himself up and come to the ball, and when Jennings tried to follow, his left leg gave out on him and he fell to the ground. He then had to be helped off the court.
After the game, Pistons.com writer Keith Langlois reported that Jennings is fearing the worst.
He'll be officially evaluated tomorrow but @BrandonJennings told some he felt like he was kicked in back of lower leg. Fear is Achilles.— Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) January 25, 2015
To add insult to injury, the Pistons were blown out by the Bucks, 101-86. Losing Jennings for the year would be a big blow to Detroit's recent resurgence.
