    I hope they don't rush him back. Wait for the tooth to be back at full strength. It's a long season.

    as I said at a different occassion in this forum, this may be a blessing in disguise. I'd love to see Siva get some burn and Will Bynum running fastbreaks with the bigs. Also, Jennings will have to work even harder to get minutes if the rotation without him delivers.

    Stuckey's injury is a blessing in disguise. We've all seen his "thumbs-down" act for years and I have no reason to believe that it would be any different this year. His injury paves the way for our lottery pick to get some extra reps and helps make sure that we see as little of Rodney as possible.

    Different story with Brandon Jennings IMO.
    Jennings is on a new team and has a fresh start. He needs to be out there running with his new teammates. I don't see any angle of this situation that makes this a "blessing in disguise". He's a starting PG on a new team. He needs to rehab his tooth ASAP and get back to work.

    From all reports, it sounds like Stuckey will be back much sooner than Jennings. The Thumb may be back for the opener.

    Can we call Jennings "The Tooth" now? Please? Because someone with better Photoshop skills than me could make a phenomenal spoof of this:

    Also, he's not the worst-shooting PG the Pistons have had in some time, but Calderon was arguably the best-shooting PG in the league.

    Okay, so inspired by myself, I went ahead and created a fairly amateur one.

    I just hope Jennings has to play a couple of game with the old school bandage tied around his jaw/head with the bunny ears up top tied in a knot.

    Thumb down, man down.

    The good news with teeth is that once they're healed, they're healed. There is no risk of re-injuring it.

    Why can't he play with a hurt tooth? Stuckey did... although his street cred fell down a notch with his finger boo boo.

    I read an article yesterday that Jennings is now able to put his tooth pretty high up on the wall.
    It sounds like he's progressing.

    (I'll try and find the link.)

    I looked at his models. His situation looks worse than first believed.

    I think you're right... I'm no dentist, but a mouth and teeth made of some sort of rubber polymer can't be a good thing.
