Injury: Lower Leg

Injury status: Expected to be out until at least Dec 14

Updated: Nov. 27

UPDATE: Cunningham (lower leg) is expected to be out indefinitely due to a stress fracture in his shin, according to The Athletic’s James L. Edwards III.\

The second-year guard will miss the games against the Boston Celtics on Saturday, the Toronto Raptors on Monday, and the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers the following week.

Cade Cunningham will miss at least the next four games for the Pistons due to left shin soreness, the team announced prior to Saturday’s game. He’ll be re-evaluated after the Pistons’ game against the Lakers next Friday in Los Angeles.

Cunningham is expected to play against the Kings on Nov. 20 if all goes well.

Cunningham also missed Friday’s loss to the New York Knicks due to his latest injury, putting him out for at least five games.

Cunningham’s injury timeline is unexpected, but it’s understandable that the team is wary. He is the dynamo. Detroit simply goes with the flow. The Pistons would rather be cautious than risk further injury by bringing back the former first-round pick.

Cunningham will be evaluated in a week, according to the team. If the rest goes well, Cunningham could return to the lineup against the Sacramento Kings on Nov. 20 or the Denver Nuggets on Nov. 22.
