Jonas Jerebko to Miss 2-3 Months?

Jerebko reportedly tore his right Achilles tendon last night against Miami, and according to the news out of Detroit, it’s not looking good for the Pistons and their young Swedish forward:

“Indications are Pistons power forward Jonas Jerebko suffered a significant injury to his right Achilles tendon in Tuesday night’s 105-89 loss to the Heat in the exhibition opener for both teams.”

“I am being told that Jerebko will likely miss 2 to 3 months minimum. Terrible News.”

    What? Damn that sucks. I must have missed the part where he got the injury. Damnnn, Jerebko is one of the teams few bright spots after last season. Hope he gets well soon.

    I like the long lost Jonas brother.. Hopefully he’ll have a speedy recovery.. If the Pistons can stay healthy and get a little more outta Gordon and Charlie V, I can see them making some noise in the east.. I think their about as good as the Bucks.. After Mia,Orl,Bos,Chi, the east is pretty much wide-open..

    not as good as the bucks, not by a long shot. but they better make some noise cuz that arena has been dead last couple yrs tempting me to go to games less and less

    ooooh my. villanueva gets a free pass this year. jonas I had you on my team (fantasy 14 team)!

    Hopefully Monroe will surprise, they land a “true” point guard, They dont get hit with injuries, and Villanueva&Gordon find their niche.. On paper, the roster looks good, good mix of youth and experience.. I think I posted a simular comment 1 year ago..

    ^ Im not even a Pistons fan, in fact they’re one of my least favorite teams.. I do like Prince,Hamilton, and Big Ben though..

    Nooooo way on the Charlie V. We have to have Monroe start if we have a chance at being OK inside. OUR INSIDE GAME SUCKS!!!! Charlie would only make it worse. Monroe can help with that.

    Helvete! – Swedish for “damned/f*ck!” This is bad news for Detroit, and for swedish basketball.

    I think this is gonna open the door for Greg Monroe. Forget Charlie V.

    He can always fall back into a backstreet boys cover group…

    They changed it to 5-6 months…pretty much the whole season…that majorly sucks.

    Y’all Saw the ball hit him in the groin to add further insult to a literal injury. Even worse a guy from his own team threw it

  • Seven Duece

    I ruptured mine April 09 and still am not 100%; hope he fares better – good luck buddy!

    This could be a blessing in disguise for the Pistons; it gives Monroe more minutes and he needs to be a key part of this team if they are going to compete this year.

    That sucks. Jonas was one of the lone bright spots last season, and after a solid showing in Europe this summer I was hoping for bigger things this year.
