Pistons' Blake Griffin: Deems self fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin said Monday in an interview with Sage Steele for ESPN's "The Encore" web show that he's made a full recovery from the arthroscopic left knee surgery he underwent Jan. 7. "I feel great," Griffin said. "I've basically been cleared for a while now, I just have been stuck in my house. So, I'm ready to go whenever things pick back up. I'm just working out and trying to stay ready and stay sane."

The 31-year-old was assumed to be out for the season when he had the procedure to address the nagging knee injury, but the NBA's two-month-long hiatus has given Griffin time to heal up and has provided him with a chance to play again if the 2019-20 campaign resumes at some point this summer. Due to the 20-46 Pistons' status as a non-contender, Griffin could still be held out for precautionary reasons when play resumes, but a decision on his status likely won't be determined until the coaching staff has a chance to evaluate him in full practices. Even if Griffin is given the green light to play, he would likely be on some sort of playing-time restriction.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Set for normal summer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) is expected to be fully recovered by June, allowing him to go through a normal workout routine over the offseason without worrying about injury rehab, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Griffin played just 18 games this season before being shut down for season-ending knee surgery. A rehab-free summer should help him as he heads into next season, but health can never be counted on for a player who has missed at least 15 games in five of the last six seasons, limiting him to just 52.3 games per season over that stretch.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Effectively done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NBA has granted the Pistons a $9.26 million disabled player exception for Griffin, who is projected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing arthroscopic left knee surgery Jan. 7, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

As Bobby Marks of notes, the exception means that Griffin is technically eligible to return to game action June 15, but barring the 16-28 Pistons making the most improbable run to the NBA Finals in league history, Detroit's season will already be over by that time. This was always the expected outcome for Griffin, who previously required a scope for the same knee last spring and looked like a shell of himself in his 18 appearances this season before Detroit shut him down and had him go under the knife again. Griffin is expected to receive clearance ahead of training camp next fall, but given his checkered health record in addition to the fact that he'll turn 31 in March, his days as an All-Star-caliber player could be over.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Out indefinitely following surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday and will be out for "an extended rehabilitation period" Tim Bontemps of reports.

Surgery has reportedly been on the table for Griffin for some time now, and the team decided to pull the trigger Tuesday. He's struggled to stay on the court so far this season, appearing in just 18 contests while shooting a dismal 35.2 percent from the field. A timetable for Griffin's return remains uncertain at this time. Christian Wood and Sekou Doumbouya are in line to see more opportunities in Griffin's absence.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: To consider season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) will be evaluated by a specialist this week and is considering season-ending surgery, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Griffin is considering season-ending surgery on the same knee that was targeted in an offseason surgery and has continued to plague him throughout the season. The star forward has seen action in just 18 games and is averaging career-worsts in points, rebounds and field-goal percentage. Considering that Griffin's appointment won't come until later in the week, he can be considered out for Tuesday's tilt with Cleveland. In his absence, Sekou Doumbouya and Christian Wood should both continue to see expanded roles.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lakers.

No surprise here, as Griffin continues to be bothered by a left knee injury that's already cost him three games. With Markieff Morris also out, expect rookie Sekou Doumbouya to again step into a larger role. Griffin should be considered questionable on a game-to-game basis until the Pistons say otherwise.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) won't play Saturday against Golden State.

Griffin will miss his third straight contest due to a left knee injury. His next opportunity to return will come Sunday against the Lakers. Sekou Doumbouya could draw another start in Griffin's stead.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Officially ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) won't play Thursday against the Clippers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Griffin was deemed doubtful due to knee soreness, so this update isn't all that surprising. Sekou Doumbouya will make his first career NBA start in Griffin's place.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Unlikely to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against the Clippers.

Griffin is likely to miss his second straight game as he continues to nurse a sore left knee. Christian Wood and Thon Maker should continue seeing increased work, especially with Markieff Morris (foot) also sidelined.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Utah, Aaron Falk of reports.

Griffin was doubtful for Monday's matchup, so this update isn't all that surprising. Christian Wood and Thon Maker should see more run in Griffin's absence.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Expected to sit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is considered doubtful for Monday's game against Utah due to left knee soreness.

Griffin's knee issues have once again resurfaced, and if he sits Monday, it'll be his fourth absence since the middle of the month. With Markieff Morris (foot) already out, Christian Wood could be set for increased minutes.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Scoring slump continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin had 12 points (3-16 FG, 3-10 3PT, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Saturday's 136-109 loss at San Antonio.

Griffin has not been able to top the 15-point mark in each of his last seven games, and he is making just 23.3 percent from the field and 11.6 percent from deep over that span. He should bounce back sooner than later, but right now Griffin isn't doing enough to remain a relevant fantasy asset.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Plays through illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin had 14 points (5-11 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and a block in 26 minutes during the Pistons' 132-102 win over the Wizards on Thursday night.

Griffin played through the same illness on Monday, but struggled mightily, shooting 2-of-14 from the field. He was better on Thursday and aided by the Pistons building a massive lead for the majority of the game. Griffin is shooting well below his career averages, currently hitting 35.9 percent of his twos and 25.3 percent of his threes. However, he has also played in just half of the Pistons' games and is a candidate to find his rhythm after a banner season in Detroit last year. He can be considered a buy-low option.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) will play Thursday against the Wizards, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Griffin will take the court despite an illness. This month, he's averaging 12.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 27.4 minutes.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Probable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is considered probable for Thursday's game against Washington due to illness.

Griffin was also dealing with the illness heading into Monday's game, but he was able to take the floor as the Pistons fell to Philadelphia. Chances are, Griffin will be available Thursday, but he could be less than 100 percent.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Struggles from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin had eight points (2-14 FG, 0-6 3PT, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 125-109 defeat against the 76ers.

Griffin was dealing with an illness before the start of the game, and he had missed three of Detroit's last four contests prior to this one. The fact that he was able to play 27 minutes was encouraging, but his shooting woes suggest he is not ready to return to his regular workload yet. Having said that, he should remain a starter ahead of Thursday's contest against the Wizards.

Pistons' Blake Griffin: Officially deemed available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) is available for Monday's game against the 76ers, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This news doesn't guarantee that Griffin will take on his usual workload Monday night, though he'll give it a go and see how his body responds to game action.

December 23, 2019 05:28 PM
Pistons' Blake Griffin: On track to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) is on track to play Monday against the 76ers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Griffin officially remains a game-time decision, though the expectation is that he'll at least give it a go. He's been battling with an illness.

December 22, 2019 05:48 PM
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is considered questionable for Monday's game against the 76ers due to an illness.

Griffin has missed three of the last four games with a knee issue, but this appears to be unrelated. Look for an update on his status Monday as he looks to avoid a third straight absence.

December 21, 2019 01:40 PM
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
