Brandon Jennings reportedly got into with coach Jim Boylan on Wednesday night and was subsequently benched, finishing with zero points on 0-for-3 shooting, while playing just 17 minutes, resulting in the first scoreless game of his entire career.
This couldn't have come at a worse time for Jennings' owners, while he was struggling coming in, hitting 4-of-15 shots for 12 points and 13 assists on Sunday. Now we'll have to wait for details on the situation, but it's possible that this is far from over. He could sit in the doghouse the rest of the way, be suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, or say the right things and bounce back. In any case, owners have no choice but to wait for the details to emerge and then act accordingly. As far as we know, he is healthy, while J.J. Redick and Mike Dunleavy are going to see a big boost if Jennings doesn't get back on his coach's good side soon.
