The news just keeps getting worse and worse for Tayshaun: “For now, the remedy is rest for the ruptured disc in Tayshaun Prince’s back, but possible surgery to correct the problem hasn’t been ruled out. The team announced after Saturday’s practice that the seven-year veteran will be out indefinitely because of the back injury that ended his streak of 436 consecutive starts with Tuesday’s home game against the Magic. The Pistons realized the seriousness of the problem Tuesday and he underwent treatment immediately to help ease the problem. His back responded at first and felt better, but things haven’t gotten better since. So Prince is continuing treatment and he isn’t expected back in the foreseeable future.”
