Griffin struggled to even play in the playoffs last season due to injuries with that same left knee. It got cleaned up after the season ended, but apparently he’s still have some problems with that leg. The Pistons will hope that it’s a brief absence and doesn’t cost him much more time than he’s already been ruled out for.
The 30-year-old was a standout for Detroit last season, and his 24.5 points per game was his best mark in the NBA.
