Even more bad news came for the Detroit Pistons. Guard Brandon Jennings is suffering from an impacted wisdom tooth and a hairline fracture at the base of it. The Pistons announced onTuesday that Jennings would be re-evaluated after a three-week immobilization period.
Detroit opens the regular season on Oct. 30 against Washington, and Jennings is likely to miss that and even more time. Jennings is the second member of the Detroit backcourt to go down in the preseason, joining Rodney Stuckey. Stuckey is out three to four weeks after breaking his thumb when he slammed his car door.
We wish Jennings a speedy recovery on what probably causes a ton of pain.
