Brandon Jennings suffered last season from an Achilles injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. After a lot of rehab and twitter posts, the young point guard may be back in action sooner than we think. Originally expected back in late December, Jennings has been medically cleared to resume full basketball activities:

If Jennings is back earlier, that will certainly help the Pistons early in the season as they try to clinch a playoff seed. With the new rules of seeding in the NBA, the Pistons are looking to make a splash in the playoffs this year. Having a fully healthy Jennings certainly could not hurt the situation.
