Jennings (Achilles) is able to start weight training.

Jennings seems to be progressing nicely from a full tear in his Achilles that he suffered in late January. However, there are serious question marks regarding his future as he makes his way back from serious injury. Only time will tell, but it's still unclear if he'll play at the same level that he once did before suffering the career-altering injury.

Jennings (Achilles) is expecting to walk without a boot in two weeks, David Mayo of MLive Media reports.

Jennings is reportedly three weeks ahead of schedule but will still miss the remainder of the season after tearing his Achilles earlier in the year. There's still a long road to recovery although this news certainly bodes well for his availability for the 2015-16 season.

Jennings has a full tear in his Achilles and will miss the remainder of the season, The Detroit News reports.

An MRI on Sunday revealed the unfortunate news that has been expected since Jennings left Saturday's game against the Bucks with the injury. There's a wide range for his potential return to action as the likely timeline is 6-9 months. His status will be updated throughout the process as D.J. Augustin takes over starting point guard duties for the rest of the season.

Jennings (leg) tweeted out "6/9months" which is likely his timetable for return, meaning that he would miss the rest of the season.

This timeline for return still has not been confirmed by the Pistons organization, although there's growing fear that he tore his Achilles against the Bucks on Saturday so the 6-9 months recovery period makes intuitive sense. Jennings was scheduled for an MRI sometime Sunday, and official news on his situation will be released in short order.

Jennings (leg) may have torn his Achilles, but nothing will be confirmed until MRI results are released Sunday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Jennings was writhing around the floor in severe pain. It was gut-wrenching to watch him clutch at the back of his leg in pain, and unfortunately, it appears Jennings' season would be over if he did indeed tear his Achilles. Most players that suffer an injury like that are never able to fully return to their past level of play. D.J. Augustin is worth a flier pick-up in all standard leagues, and Spencer Dinwiddie should be added to all watch lists.

Jennings was in a boot and on crutches leaving the arena following Saturday's game, FOXSports Wisconsin reports. There was some speculation from reporters that he may have suffered an Achilles injury. Jennings will be out for the "foreseeable future".

With Jennings down and out, D.J. Augustin is the prudent pick-up right now in all standard leagues. Jennings should be hed onto until an official diagnoses is released, which is expected to come Sunday. He left Saturday's game in considerable pain, and some of his teammates expressed their concern and support after the game. Rookie point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, the man with the greatest mustache since Magnum P.I., could also see a big enough increase in minutes that he could become relevant in deeper leagues.

Jennings left Saturday's game with a left leg injury, the Pistons' official site reports.

Jennings was writhing in pain and didn't put weight on the injury as leaving the floor. If Jennings has to miss any time, D.J. Augustin should step into the starting lineup and have great value, while Spencer Dinwiddie should also start to see more minutes. There's even an outside chance that Dinwiddie could start and Augustin would simply get more minutes and continue to come off the bench. The Pistons play Sunday. It seems highly unlikely that Jennings will be ready to play.

Jennings finished with 24 points (10-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT) and 21 assists during Wednesday's victory over the Orlando Magic.

While it looked as if Jennings may have started to cool off over the past two games, he took off again Wednesday with a monster double-double. The 21 assists were a new season-high for him, nearly doubling his previous season-high. He may not be the most consistent fantasy player, but if he can post lines like this, fantasy owners will be plenty happy.

Jennings scored just seven points (1-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with five assists in 30 minutes in the loss to Atlanta on Monday.

Jennings had been playing excellently in the Pistons' winning streak. Since Josh Smith was excised from the team, he has scored 34 points or more three times. However, Jennings appears to be cooling off and is just 4-of-19 (21.1 percent) from the field in the last two games. With the former Buck, fantasy owners will have to take the good with the bad.

Jennings scored 34 points (11-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 8-9 FT) with 10 assists, two rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's win over the Raptors.

After shooting just 36% (12-for-67) from the floor over his last four games, Jennings turned in one of his occasional amazing performances. If you can handle his poor FG% and inconsistency, the Pistons' PG can still be a solid asset for roto owners.
