Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings, who ruptured his left Achilles tendon nearly 11 months ago, will return to the court for the first time when he suits up for the Grand Rapids Drive of the D-League on Saturday night.

“I don’t think there’s a lot of guys with Brandon’s status in the league, even coming off an injury, who would do that,” said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, who will board a bus with Pistons staffers and Jennings well-wishers to Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the game. “But Brandon just loves to play basketball. I asked him, ‘Do you want this publicized or kept quiet?’ He said, ‘I don’t care. I just want to hoop.’ That’s Brandon. He truly loves to play basketball.”
