Brandon Jennings Injury: Updates on Pistons Star's Status, Likely Return Date

Tyler ConwayFeatured ColumnistOctober 15, 2013

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:

He is set to return in a bench role to make his Pistons debut.
