Brandon Jennings was “not close” to being cleared, according to an anonymous source of’s David Aldridge.

On the other hand…

Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago:

I don’t know what to make of this. I’d trust both Aldridge and Goodwill on this, but they obviously can’t both be right. For what it’s worth, Jennings retweeted Goodwill’s tweet.

Goodwill is only slightly more optimistic than Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, who said he expected Jennings to make his season debut in mid- to late-December. When Jennings plays in a game is much more important than when he participates in basketball activities.

Either way, I doubt the Pistons are sweating it. Reggie Jackson is their starting point guard, and they have Steve Blake and Spencer Dinwiddie behind him. Jennings is more than afterthought, but he’s not paramount to the team’s present or future.
