Default Jennings Out 3 Weeks

It looks like Jennings will miss at least the first 4 games. Anybody that has had anything done to their wisdom teeth know this is pretty painful. At least it's a fairly short time to be out. I guess this really puts the starting lineup for game 1 into question. I could see Bynum potentially starting with Billups at SG. It also gives KCP a chance.

The Detroit Pistons announced today that guard Brandon Jennings will not play in the teamís next two exhibitions, at Chicago on Wednesday and at Cleveland on Thursday, with wisdom tooth discomfort. He also missed the previous two exhibitions.

An examination by Dr. Robert Weaver on Monday revealed an impacted wisdom tooth and a hairline fracture of the jawbone at the base of the tooth.

Treatment will include immobilization for three weeks. He will be re-evaluated at that time.

A lot of times a hairline fracture is worse than a break. I wonder if it's like that with the jaw. Hopefully this isn't something that lingers.

I wouldn't expect Bynum AND KCP both starting, I think we could even see Billups and Singler starting in the back court to start...

I think it's safe to say Billups will be starting. That other spot is definitely up for grabs still though. If Bynum keeps playing that well with Drummond he'll definitely see his fair share of PT. You can tell already they are making Drummond more of a focal point this year (as they should).

First two games

Grizz - Tony Allen
Celts - Bradley

Billups can hold his own against these two on defense,

Next couple of games,

Pacers - George
Warriors - Iggy / Thompson

Might need Singler or KCP's length on these matchups...

Brandon Jennings will miss at least three weeks with a wisdom tooth fracture, meaning he will be out for the rest of the preseason and the beginning of the regular season.

Jennings is slated to be Detroit's starting point guard, playing in tandem with veteran Chauncey Billups.
