Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings suffered a potentially season ending injury last night.

Season Over

Early reports are indicating that the 25-year old Jennings went down with what appears to be a torn Achilles tendon last night in the Pistons 101-86 loss against the Milwaukee Bucks in Wisconsin.

Late in the third quarter of the Pistons defeat, Jennings was in the back court trying to pressure an inbounds pass when he took a step and crumpled to the ground in pain. Jennings had to be wheel chaired to the locker room.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Pistons really are fearing the worst for their talented one-guard.

"There’s significant fear within the Detroit Pistons organization that guard Brandon Jennings sustained a torn Achilles’ tendon on Saturday night and could miss the rest of the season, league sources told Yahoo Sports."

Jennings has been a revelation since Josh Smith was let go by the Pistons. In his last 15 games he has scored 20.1 points a game, shot 39.4 percent from three and the Pistons have gone 12-3 to get themselves back in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

It's been a bad year for NBA injuries. We had Paul George breaking his leg before the FIBA World Cup, rookies Julius Randle and Jabari Parker suffering season enders with Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant to boot.
