    Blake Griffin will miss Friday's preseason matchup with the Cavs.

    No reason is being given but it's likely rest for the Pistons' superstar after he returned from an illness on Wednesday. Tonight may be the last chance for Markieff Morris, Thon Maker, Christian Wood and Joe Johnson to show out in extended run. They're the targets if you're brave enough to play DFS tonight.

    After recovering from the flu, Blake Griffin returned to game action on Wednesday to drop 17 points, five rebounds, three assists and two threes in a 124-117 win over the Mavs.

    Considering he played more than any other Pistons player, I think it's safe to say the flu has passed for Griffin. Continue to consider Griffin as a great source for points and rebounds along with some out-of-position threes and assists while not offering much on defense.

    Blake Griffin (flu) returned to Pistons practice on Thursday, going through morning shootaround, after missing the first two days of camp.

    Griffin is reportedly healthy and ready to assume his role as the team's go-to guy. After putting up career-high numbers last season, and battling offseason injuries, Griffin is going as an early middle-round selection in drafts.

    Blake Griffin sat out the first practice of Pistons camp due to an illness.

    Griffin is reportedly healthy after offseason knee surgery and should be ready for training camp in a few days ago. Pistons fans can breathe a sigh of relief after not seeing Griffin out there on Tuesday.

    Coach Dwane Casey said that star forward Blake Griffin (left knee surgery) will be ready to go for training camp.

    Casey would like to give Griffin sporadic days off this year, but that might be hard to do if the team is fighting for a playoff spot again this year. Griffin put up career numbers last year, but an extensive injury history looms over as well. He's expected to be an early middle-round selection in drafts.

    Coach Dwane Casey revealed that although the team's training staff is easing him into things, Blake Griffin (knee) is back on the court and playing.

    Coach Casey added that the team expects Griffin to be at 100% with "no lingering effects." It looks like Griffin is progressing nicely in his return and should be all systems go for the start of the season. With Griffin's extensive injury history, the team may manage him more this year. Coming off a career year, he's expected to be an early middle-round selection.

    Blake Griffin (left knee) has been cleared to start light basketball activities after undergoing arthroscopic surgery in late April.

    Griffin dealt with left knee soreness in the season's final games and missed the first two games of the playoffs. His issues were dealt with quickly after the season ended and he should be ready for the start of the season. Look for Griffin to come off draft boards in the early-middle rounds after he put up a career season last year, though there might not be much profit margin at that price. There's a definite 8-cat lean as well.

    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 3 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.
