Via Twitter, 97.1 FM’s Matt Dery has the word on the injury Jonas Jerebko suffered last night in the Pistons’ loss to the Heat, and it isn’t good:
Pistons Jonas Jerebko has a torn achilles tendon. More soon.
I am being told that Jerebko will likely miss 2 to 3 months minimum. Terrible News.
Jerebko was one of the few bright spots on a dismal Pistons squad last year, surprising everyone by averaging 9.3 points and 6 rebounds, making 73 starts as an unheralded rookie. Fortunately, Detroit has plenty of forwards who can fill his minutes this season, in addition to one of the league’s most well-respected training staffs.
