Jonas Jerebko hoped for a late-season return with the Pistons. But with 14 games remaining, coach John Kuester has dismissed that possibility …
Kuester is disheartened, to say the least. “I’ve never seen a kid work so hard to try to get back,” Kuester said. “It’s killing him. He’s worked extremely hard to get back.”
I admire that Jerebko wanted to get back this season, but there’s really little incentive to do that and risk re-aggravating the injury. Now he’ll have a full offseason to heal and try to take back the starting job he looked to be on the verge of earning before his preseason injury.
