The Detroit Pistons enter tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks coming off a 99-89 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. Josh Smith scored 18 points and Andre Drummond hauled in 16 rebounds for the Pistons. The loss dropped the Pistons to 3-10, last place in the Central Division. Brandon Jennings left the game after scoring nine points in 23 minutes due to a thumb injury. He's hoping to play tonight and his status is "questionable" for the game.

Keith Langlois, editor of, confirmed Jennings' status with this tweet.
Brian Packey at DetroitBadBoys noted that Jennings injured his hand attempting to steal the ball from Jeff Teague.  Jennings immediately started to shake his hand in pain and left the game in the next minute. Following the game, it was announced that Jennings had a hyperextended left thumb. There is no official word whether or not Jennings will miss time, but with treatment and rest, Jennings is hopeful to play tonight against the Bucks.

Should Jennings be unable to play or have his time limited, expect D.J. Augustin to see extended minutes at the point. Augustin is averaging 10 points, 2.7 assists and two rebounds per game.

Jennings, in his sixth NBA season, is averaging 16 points, 5.8 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game this season. In 384 career games with the Bucks and Pistons, Jennings has averages of 16.7 points, 6.1 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.
