AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Pistons center Aron Baynes had surgery to repair a broken nose.
The team announced the operation Thursday, saying Baynes received clearance to keep playing after injuring his nose at Oklahoma City on Nov. 27.
Baynes has played in three games since then. He missed all five of his shots from the field in Wednesday’s win over Phoenix.
Baynes is averaging 4.3 points a game on the season.
