The Pistons’ rebuild may now be delayed.
Point guard Cade Cunningham may need shin surgery, according to NBA insider Marc Stein. The former No. 1-overall has missed Detroits’ past five games with shin soreness, and there is now fear that he suffered a stress fracture.
Cunningham’s discomfort was first made public after a lackluster 1-for-11 shooting performance in the Pistons’ 128-112 loss to the Boston Celtics earlier this month. The injury did not seem serious at the time, but the 21-year old’s situation has since developed.
Through 12 games, Cunningham has averaged 19.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6.0 assists. The 3-14 Pistons have the second lowest winning percentage in the association.
