Pistons’ Jennings sidelined with jaw problems

Updated: October 16, 2013

Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings
is expected to miss at least a few preseason games and possibly the start of
the regular season because of jaw issues.

The Pistons said Jennings was examined by Dr. Robert Weaver earlier this week
and tests revealed an impacted wisdom tooth as well as a hairline fracture of
the mandible at the base of the tooth.

Treatment is expected to include immobilization of the jaw for a three-week
period. He will be re-evaluated at that time.

The Pistons begin the regular season on Oct. 30 against Washington.
