Detroit Pistons' guard Brandon Jennings out for season with ruptured Achilles

January 25, 2015

After releasing forward Josh Smith earlier this year and going on a hot streak to climb back into the playoff hunt, the Detroit Pistons' postseason hopes were dealt a significant setback today, as the team announced this afternoon that starting point guard Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season due to a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

The injury, which will require surgery, was confirmed following an MRI conducted on Sunday by team medical personnel.

Jennings, a 6'1" local Southern California product, has appeared in 41 games this season, averaging 15.4 points, 6.6 assists, and 1.07 steals in 28.6 minutes per game.

Team medical personnel will work with Brandon and his representatives in determining the next course of action and treatment for the injury.  No timetable is being placed on Jennings’ return at this time.
