And, unsurprisingly, the team is struggling in the East, sitting in 14th place with a 6-19 record.
No one knows what is ahead for Cunningham or when he will return to the team.
But it’s good to know that even if he’s out for the rest of the season, the team has some options.

The other night, a young fan in the stands at a Pistons game sat next to a sign that read, “Put Me in Coach, I’m Back.”
What made this so cute was that the kid was dressed up to look just like Cunningham, it was a wonderful costume.
It was so wonderful, in fact, that Cunningham himself took note of it and was caught smiling on the sideline as the kid’s image was projected on the screens above.
Cunningham has now missed multiple games due to a shin injury.
The injury is seemingly quite serious and the team and Cunningham need to come to a conclusion and make a choice: either sit Cunningham out for the rest of the season and let his shin heal or allow him to get surgery.
It’s clear that Cunningham could be out for a long time.
The team is very quiet about what is happening with Cunningham and their plans for the near future, and this is rubbing some fans the wrong way.
They want him back: Cunningham was averaging 19.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6 assists a game before he was injured.
The team wasn’t doing very well before Cunningham’s departure and it’ll take a miracle to turn the season around so people want the team to make the smartest, safest choice to get him back as soon as possible.
