Pistons’ Reggie Bullock was victim of hit-and-run on way to practice
Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Bullock was the victim of a hit-and-run incident over the weekend.
Bullock was on his way to practice on Sunday when his car was struck and the other driver fled, per Keith Langois of the team’s official site. The fifth-year swingman was said to be OK but did not end up going through practice due to what Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy called back spasms. Langois adds that Bullock will travel with the team on their upcoming six-game road trip, but his status is to be determined.
Rod Beard of The Detroit News also relayed that Bullock went to a hospital after the accident for a precautionary examination.
The 26-year-old Bullock is enjoying the best year of his career with 10.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 27.2 minutes per game. He and the Pistons have some work to do over the final month of the season though, as their 30-36 record has them a full five games out of a playoff spot in the East.
