Sixers-Pistons Preview: Death By Injured Point Guards

With Brandon Jennings and Michael Carter-Williams likely on the shelf, this could get ugly. Since jettisoning maligned forward Josh Smith, the Detroit Pistons have transformed into one of the most compelling stories in the NBA. Once mired in the Eastern Conference muck with the Sixers and Knicks, Detroit climbed out only to have their ascension halted by an injury to one of their best players. The fawning over Brandon Jennings got a little ridiculous following his injury -- people were still making #BucksIn6 jokes as recently as a month or two ago -- but losing him to an Achilles tear...

Brandon Jennings has successful achilles surgery

Jennings updated family, friends and fans about his surgery via social media. If you follow Brandon Jennings' Instagram (thedealer7) or SnapChat (thedealer3), you will know that he had surgery on his ruptured achilles on Mondsay in New York (got there before the blizzard apparently) and it was successful.  He thanked his family, friends and fans (THAT'S US!!!) for their support. Successful Surgery. Thanks for the love & support. I appreciate it! pic.twitter.com/Ir1xKrjR98 — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) January 27, 2015 Jennings has other videos and pictures from his hospital...

Daily Dish: Tuesday's Fantasy lineup advice

Should D.J. Augustin be a must-play now that Brandon Jennings is out? Our Chris Towers offers his take on Tuesday's best options in his latest Daily Dish.

Game 46: Cavs at Pistons

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (25-20) at DETROIT PISTONS (17-28)The Palace of Auburn Hills7:30 p.m. TuesdayRadio: WTAM-AM 1100, WMMS-FM 100.7, La Mega-FM 97.7TV: NBA TV, Fox Sports Ohio1. The last time these two teams met, the Pistons pounded the Cavs at The Q, 103-80, on Dec. 28. Point guard Brandon Jennings ripped the Cavs for 25 points and six assists. The Cavs won't have to deal with Jennings tonight. He ruptured his left Achilles' tendon (same one as Cavs center Anderson Varejao) and will be lost for the season. The Pistons have replaced him with D.J. Augustin in the starting lineup. He's a...

Stan Van Gundy on Brandon Jennings: 'He really thought we were going to kick everybody's butt every night'

The Pistons need a new source of swag. A win on the road against the No. 2 or 3 team in the conference on the second night of a back-to-back would've been a tall task even with Brandon Jennings running the point. Mere hours after officially learning Jennings would be lost for the season with a ruptured achilles? Yeah, while you have to give the Pistons credit for staying in it until the final horn, it's no surprise the team trailed by double digits for much of the game. Losing Jennings means more than simply losing points and assists. Take it from Stan Van Gundy: "Brandon's a guy that...

Pistons vs. Raptors final score: D.J. Augustin steps up but defense missing as Detroit falls to Toronto 114-110

D.J. Augustin looked more than capable of picking up the point guard reins from the injured Brandon Jennings. DJ Augustin has been here before. A team loses its starting point guard and most dynamic playmaker to a season-ending injury. Last year, Augustin broke out with the Chicago Bulls after stepping in for the injured Derrick Rose. In his first game as the starting point guard for a Pistons team that just lost Brandon Jennings to an achilles injury, Augustin delivered his best game in a Detroit uniform and scored a career-high 35 points. Unfortunately, his offensive efforts weren't...

About a half hour before The Detroit News posted their story, Jennings gave away the results of his MRI with the following tweet: 6/9months. — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) January 25, 2015 As has been pointed out, Kobe Bryant missed exactly eight months when he tore his achilles last...
