Jonas Jerebko Suffers Torn Right Achilles' Tendon

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:

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.
