After becoming a major part of the recent success of the Detroit Pistons, bad news arrived in the form of a torn Achilles for point guard Brandon Jennings.
Jennings underwent successful surgery and is now expected to miss 6-to-9 months.
All things considered, Jennings seemed upbeat in a tweet sent out today:
Jennings averaged over 15 points per game with 6.6 assists in 41 games this season, but he really came on after the release of Josh Smith. In 13 games in January, he averaged 20.9 points and 7.2 assists per game while shooting 43 percent from the field.
The loss of Jennings means more time for D.J. Augustin and rookie Spencer Dinwiddie. It also might mean fewer wins for Detroit.
