REPORT: Cade Cunningham Feared to Have Stress Fracture in Shin, Out Indefinitely

Detroit Pistons star Cade Cunningham will be shelved indefinitely and could require surgery with a possible stress fracture in his shin, according to Marc Stein of the NY Times:

Previously expected to return Sunday against the Sacramento Kings after a five-game absence, the league-worst 3-14 Pistons will be forced to carry on without their star player. In his absence, Jaden Ivey, Killian Hayes, and Alec Burks will all have elevated roles.

Cunningham has shown signs of greatness this season, especially just prior to his absence. In just 12 contests this year, the second-year guard has averaged 19.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6.0 assists but struggled with efficiency after adding weight in the offseason.
