Prince Injures Back Again

Pistons small forward Tayshaun Prince reinjured his back last night in the team's loss in Boston against the Celtics. He collided with teammate, forward Jason Maxiell, whose knee hit the center of Prince's back.

Nothing further has been reported regarding the injury, but Prince was in extreme pain. Speculation is that he could miss a considerable amount of time, perhaps the rest of the season. Detroit is already without point guard Rodney Stuckey and center Ben Wallace, both of whom are hoping to return before the end of the season.

The only bright spot for the Pistons is that Prince's injury opens up additional playing time for the team's three rookie forwards: Austin Daye, DaJuan Summers and starter Jonas Jerebko.
