  • Blake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (left knee) underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday night.

    Griffin's knee obviously dogged him during the final stretch of the regular season and throughout the Pistons' brief playoff run. The Pistons said that he isn't expected to miss any off season training and should be good to go for the start of the 2019-2020 season.

    Blake Griffin joined the Piston fans in the "refs you suck" chant that took place in Game 4 on Monday.

    Griffin continued to pour it on the refs in his postgame press conference, referencing how Giannis Antetokounmpo alone took more free throws than the entire Pistons team in Game 4. While the free throw disparity is a disheartening development for the Pistons, they would have needed a lot more than a few calls to make this a series.

    Blake Griffin may have limped through 28 minutes in Monday night's 127-104 Game 4 loss to the Bucks, but he put up 22 points, five rebounds, six assists and four threes.

    Griffin helped keep the Pistons' season alive for almost three quarters on a bad knee before fouling out in the fourth to a standing ovation. He was at significantly less than 100 percent during this series, but it was good to see him lay it all out there as a last-gasp effort for his team. Griffin had a great fantasy season and there should be more of the same as the 30-year-old hopefully returns healthy in 2019-20.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is active for Monday's Game 4 against the Bucks, as expected.

    Griffin was listed as probable but there was pretty much zero doubt about whether or not he'd play with Detroit facing elimination. We'll see if they can extend this series tonight, even with their best player clearly working at less than 100 percent health.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Bucks.

    Griffin returned for Game 3, Detroit's first home playoff game in three years, and looks good to go for Game 4. It's unlikely to help Detroit as the Bucks have been in full control of this series from the tip.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) started in Saturday's Game 4 loss to the Bucks, finishing with 27 points (10-of-24 from the field), two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals in 31 minutes.

    Griffin played despite the previous reports that he'll miss the first round because of knee soreness that has been bothering him even before the playoffs started. He wanted to help out his squad but his team decided to not show up in a crucial match that made the Pistons fall 3-0 against the surging Bucks. Even with him back in the fold, Detroit went down by as much as 22 points in the third quarter on their home floor. The Bucks are obviously in control of the series and are looking to close it out in their next bout.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) will play in Game 3 on Saturday.

    Griffin missed the first two games of the series and the Pistons got worked in both games. It's not too surprising that Griffin is active for the team's first home playoff game since 2015-16.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is feeling "much, much better" according to coach Dwane Casey and is will go through warmups to determine his status for Saturday's game.

    Detroit has not been able to make the first two games of this series competitive and it would make sense for them to let him give it a go for the home crowd. Either way, the Bucks look to be in total control of this series.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play in Saturday’s Game 3 vs. the Bucks.

    Griffin has already missed the first two games against Milwaukee. Detroit hasn’t been very competitive without him and they’ll need the big man if they hope to even up the series at home. Thon Maker would likely get another start if Griffin isn’t able to play.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Bucks.

    Although Griffin participated in shootaround this morning, his knee is not healthy enough for him to play. Griffin is trying everything he can to get out on the court despite an earlier report that said he would not play in the first round. Even if Griffin suits up at some point this series, the Pistons don’t stand a chance against Giannis Antetokounmpo and company. Blake’s next opportunity to play will be on Saturday.

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt against the Bucks.

    Griffin had a very bulky knee brace on in a shootaround early Wednesday so he is still very much questionable for the matchup. Expect an update closer to tip-off.

    Blake Griffin (left knee) was able to get some shots up at Wednesday morning's shootaround, though he was sporting a big brace on his left leg.

    Griffin is going to do everything in his power to get onto the court so the Pistons will at least have a fighting chance in this series. Griffin at even 50 percent is going to be better than most players, and as the only truly dynamic player on the roster he'll be shouldering a huge burden to keep Detroit from getting smoked like they did in Game 1. There were reports that Griffin might miss the entire first round, but it looks as though he's giving it his all to at least make an appearance.

    Blake Griffin is listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 3 vs. the Bucks.

    Griffin's knee is giving him issues, but if the bounce-back forward can't find his way back to the court soon, the Pistons' hopes of advancing to the next round might just go up in flames.
