The Pistons have an open roster spot, and Van Gundy said a third point guard likely will be with the Pistons by the end of the week. Despite trade speculation, Van Gundy dismissed the idea of dealing anything of value just to add a third point guard. "We want to give ourselves every chance, so we want to get some help, but we won't mortgage anything in terms of the future," Van Gundy said. "We're not going to go out and give away assets, picks or anything like that. No, we're not gonna do that." That means a temporary solution probably could be found in the D-League, with a 10-day contract. Detroit Free Press

Vincent Ellis: Jennings had surgery last night. Texting SVG this morning with game plan suggestions. #pistons Twitter @Vincent_Ellis56

The Pistons have not released formal details about the surgery yet. "He seems fine, as a matter of fact, he was texting me game-plan advice this morning -- 'I've been watching them (Cavaliers) a lot,' that's what he said," Van Gundy said at this morning's shootaround. "He's so into it, it kills him not to be playing. That guy loves to play basketball. More than most people that I've been around in this league, he just loves to play, and this is killing him. He's trying to stay upbeat." Booth Newspapers

It seems as though fooling the officials into calling a foul when there wasn’t one is among the criteria the league looks at when deciding to crack down. J.J. Redick and Andre Drummond are the latest to receive warnings, and in both cases, fouls were called when the contact appeared to have been exaggerated. NBCSports.com

After crumpling to the floor on a non-contact play in the third quarter of a loss to Milwaukee, Jennings is set to return to Detroit on Sunday for an MRI exam on his left Achilles. Both the Pistons and Jennings are bracing for the worst, sources told Yahoo Sports. Yahoo! Sports

Things already weren't going well for the Detroit Pistons when they faced off against the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night. The Bucks were in the process of blowing out the Pistons when Brandon Jennings suffered what looks to be a very serious injury.
