Last season, Detroit Pistons power forward Blake Griffin dealt with a knee injury that limited his availability at the end of the season and the beginning of the playoffs, which led Griffin to have knee surgery in the offseason. The surgery wasn't expected to keep Griffin out of any offseason activities, and Tuesday's announcement that he's resumed light basketball activities keeps Griffin on track to be a full go for the 2019-2020 season. Knee injuries are definitely something to be concerned over, but as long as Griffin is able to take the court when the season opens, his usage on this Pistons team will make him a strong fantasy basketball option next season. There's injury risk, but Griffin's upside is undeniable.
Detroit Pistons power forward/center Blake Griffin was a game-time call and he decided to suit up, despite obvious pain in the 127-104 loss to the Bucks with the series on the line. Griffin was far from 100 percent as he limped his way to 22 points and added six dimes with five boards in the effort. Griffin went for it and deserves some credit with the series pretty much over before this game even started. Griffin played a healthy 77 games this season and it was a shame he had the knee issues during the playoffs. Griffin should be up for some early-round value next season after this excellent bounce-back season.
Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin (knee) is a game-time decision for Monday's Game 4 versus the Milwaukee Bucks. The good news is, Griffin is listed as probable for this game, so that's a great sign. It sounds like he'll actually suit up for this game, but there won't be official confirmation until after pre-game warmups. Thon Maker would lose minutes and value with Griffin back in the rotation. Griffin shouldn't be limited since there has been no word of that yet.
