The Detroit Pistons announced this afternoon that guard Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season due to a ruptured left Achilles tendon. The injury, which will require surgery, was confirmed following an MRI conducted on Sunday by team medical personnel. 

The injured happened during the third quarter of Detroit's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday. 

Team medical personnel will work with Brandon and his representatives in determining the next course of action and treatment for the injury.  No timetable is being placed on Jennings' return at this time. 

The 6-foot-1 guard has appeared in 41 games this season averaging 15.4 points, 6.6 assists and 1.07 steals in 28.6 minutes per game.
