Pistons guard Brandon Jennings leaves game with leg injury

MILWAUKEE (AP) Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings had to be helped to the locker room late in the third quarter of Saturday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with an apparent lower left leg injury.

Jennings fell to the floor while planting on his left leg while guarding an inbounds pass. He immediately clutched the leg above his sneakers while writhing on the floor in pain.

Play was stopped after the Bucks scored on the other end of the court with 1:03 left in the quarter. Jennings left with 16 points playing against the team that drafted him in the first round in 2009.

He set a career high and NBA season high with 21 assists on Wednesday in a 128-118 win over Orlando.
