If everything about a skinny dog is fleas, the Pistons thing goes even further. After 18 consecutive losses, the Michigan organization now knows that it will have to face at least two weeks without its starting center, Jalen Duren, who has suffered a sprained ankle; reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The injury occurred in the last game they played against the Memphis Grizzlies. He center Detroit won a defensive rebound, but when he fell he landed on an opponent’s foot and sprained his joint. Here is the moment when the mishap occurred.
As soon as he fell, Duren made clear gestures of pain and had to be helped by his teammates to leave the field. At that time it was unknown to what extent he had been injured or how serious the problem was. Finally, talking about two weeks does not sound so serious, although it does a significant damage to the team for the upcoming matches.

As for Duren, it is the second ailment he has had in his ankles, although the previous occasion was on the right. For the second-year player, it is being an important brake in what seemed (and seems) could be his breakout season. Not in vain does he average 12.6 points, 10.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.
