Detroit Pistons combo guard and 2021 No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham needs season-ending surgery on his left shin, multiple outlets reported Monday.

Cunningham sustained a stress fracture to his shin and has been sidelined since Nov. 9. The decision comes after several weeks of rest, consultations and discussions, per the reports. He’s expected to be fully recovered and ready for the 2023-24 season.


Cunningham’s second NBA season ends after just 12 games. He was averaging 19.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game.

Cunningham finished third in Rookie of the Year voting in 2021-22 behind Scottie Barnes (Raptors) and Evan Mobley (Cavaliers) after averaging 17.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists.
