    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Scores season-high 22 points in Saturday loss

    Jennings had 22 points (7-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds, two steals and a block in a loss to the Raptors on Saturday. Jennings scored a season-high in points against the Raptors on Saturday. Most of his damage got done down the stretch with the game was seemingly out of reach and the Pistons nearly completed the improbable comeback. This is an interesting situation to monitor now that Jennings is showing that he deserves more minutes in the rotation. Starting point guard Reggie Jackson hasn't been entirely consistent and Jennings is getting better with more time that passes.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Scores 20 off bench in loss Thursday

    Jennings scored 20 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with five assists and a rebound over 20 minutes in a 115-99 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday. After suffering an ankle injury against the Warriors on Saturday, Jennings failed to make offensive impacts in either of Detroit's following two games. Jennings hit his stride against the Pelicans, however, hitting multiple three's for the first time since Jan. 14. While Jennings' performance Thursday is an encouraging sign for future production, injuries and a diminished role (Jennings is averaging 17.4 minutes per game, as opposed to 28.6 last season) have limited his fantasy upside.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Scores only two points in loss to Bulls

    Jennings (ankle) recorded two points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, and two assists across 16 minutes in Monday's 111-101 loss to the Bulls. After jamming his ankle in the Pistons' previous game Saturday against the Warriors, Jennings was cleared to return to action Monday, but didn't provide much of an impact. Coach Stan Van Gundy remains reluctant to play Jennings and Reggie Jackson together, and with Jackson routinely seeing over 30 minutes per night, it's been tough for Jennings to reach even the 20-minute mark on a regular basis.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Available for Monday's game

    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Jennings (ankle) is available for Monday's game against the Bulls, Keith Langlois of reports. Jennings suffered an unknown ankle injury against the Warriors Saturday, and was questionable to enter Monday's game. As of now, it looks as though he will be available, but it is unclear how healthy Jennings will be going into the game. Should Jennings be less than 100 percent, look for Steve Blake and Reggie Jackson to fill any missed minutes.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Questionable for Monday

    Jennings has a "50-50" chance of playing in Monday's game against the Bulls, Keith Langlois of reports. Jennings hurt his ankle during Saturday's contest with the Warriors, which now brings his status for Monday into question. Jennings availability is currently considered a coin flip, but we should see his status updated following Monday morning's shootaround. If he's unable to play, look for Steve Blake to backup Reggie Jackson at point guard.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Sustains ankle injury Saturday

    Jennings left Saturday's contest against the Warriors due to a jammed ankle, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports. Relegated to bench duty since making his season debut on Dec. 29, Jennings notched two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in eight minutes before his departure Saturday. While a foot injury is always a concern for a player less than one year removed from a torn Achilles, expect the veteran point guard's status to be clarified in due time. If Jennings requires some time to heal, Steve Blake will serve as Reggie Jackson's primary backup at the point.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Scores 17 off bench in victory Monday

    Jennings (Achilles) scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with six assists, one rebound and an assist over 18 minutes in a 115-89 victory over the Magic on Monday. Jennings turned in his finest performance since returning from a ruptured left Achilles' tendon. Jennings, who averaged six points with three rebounds and 3.3 assists in his first three games back from a rehab assignment, appears to have assumed Steve Blake's role as the team's primary backup point guard. Jennings' playing time is worth monitoring as coach Stan Van Gundy eases him back into a consistent role.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Plays 17 minutes in season debut

    Jennings (Achilles) played 17 minutes in his season debut during Tuesday's 108-96 loss to the Knicks, finishing with seven points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, and one rebound. Jennings immediately assumed the minutes of veteran Steve Blake, who didn't see the floor after serving as Reggie Jackson's top backup at point guard throughout the season. It's likely that coach Stan Van Gundy will carve out a little more room for Jennings in his rotation with wing players Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marcus Morris ranking among the league leaders in minutes, but in order to do that, he'd have to be willing to play Jennings and Jackson together. Even if that materializes, it's unlikely the duo would share the backcourt for extensive stretches of action, which could ultimately put a cap on Jennings' fantasy value. He might be worth a flier in very deep formats, but those in shallower formats can feel free to ignore Jennings for now.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Set to make season debut Tuesday

    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Jennings (Achilles) is "ready to go" for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, reports. Jennings has been in uniform for the Pistons' last three games, but didn't leave the bench, as Van Gundy only intended to use the point guard in case of emergency. With an extra week to rest up following an arduous rehab process for the torn Achilles' tendon, Jennings is come off the bench for his season debut Monday, marking his first NBA appearance in nearly 11 months. Jennings is eventually expected to assume the second spot on the depth chart at the point behind starter Reggie Jackson, but with backup Steve Blake playing his best basketball of the season, Jennings could be forced to settle for a more limited role initially.

    Pistons' Brandon Jennings: Not expected to play this week

    Jennings (Achilles) will be in uniform beginning with Tuesday's game against the Heat, but he's not expected to play in any of the Pistons' three games this week, David Mayo of reports. Jennings notched a double-double for the Grand Rapids Drive of the D-League on Sunday, and while he certainly looked to have his quickness back, the Pistons will continue to bring him along slowly as he recovers from a torn Achilles. There's a chance Jennings could play Tuesday (at Miami), Wednesday (at Atlanta) or Saturday (vs. Boston) - he hasn't officially been ruled out - but at this point it looks as though the team is targeting next Tuesday against the Knicks as his return date.
