Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings' bothersome wisdom tooth was apparently a more serious issue than anyone previously thought, as tests showed Jennings had an impacted tooth with a fracture at the base.

Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News notes that Jennings will miss at least three weeks before being reevaluated:
