Blake Griffin pushing to play despite injured knee

Blake Griffin Pistons

Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin is a serious doubt for the remainder of the team’s first round series, but he does not want to sit out.

Griffin missed Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Milwaukee Bucks with a knee injury, and according to coach Dwane Casey, he’s pushing to play despite the advice of the medical staff.

We already know that Griffin would have played in the series opener if it was his decision. Ultimately, though, the Pistons are not going to overrule the medical staff, and as long as that remains the case, it is unlikely that we’ll see him on the floor in the series.
