AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Will Bynum and Chauncey Billups were in the starting lineup for the Detroit Pistons against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, while guards Brandon Jennings and Rodney Stuckey sat out with injuries.
Jennings, acquired in an offseason trade to be Detroit's new point guard, has been dealing with an impacted wisdom tooth and a hairline fracture on the mandible at the base of the tooth. Stuckey broke his right thumb after catching it in a car door and needed surgery.
The Wizards were missing first-round draft pick Otto Porter, who has been out with a right hip flexor problem. Center Marcin Gortat, acquired by Washington from Phoenix in a trade last week, did not start.
