The 2022-23 season has not been so kind to the Detroit Pistons as the hold the league’s second-worst record at 12-35 and are last in the East. Detroit has a younger roster this season with Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren playing big roles for the team. Another young star on the rise for the Piston’s was Cade Cunningham, but he played just 12 games after his season ended early. Good news is being reported from Cunningham now and that’s a positive sign for his recovery process.

In 12 games played for the Piston’s this season, Cunningham averaged 20/6/6 in (33.3) minutes per game. His 2022-23 season was cut short due to the need to get shin surgery. Definitely not how the 21 year old wanted this season to unfold, but hopefully he can be better from it moving forward.

Piston’s fans should be happy to know that a month after his season-ending shin surgery, Cunningham has said that he is pain free. He won’t be back this year, but he will still be a big part of their franchise’s future moving forward. Michigan Sports Betting sites have the Pistons at (+100000) to win the Finals this season.
