According to reports Detroit Pistons star forward Blake Griffin will be out for the remainder of the series against the Milwaukee Bucks due to his left knee injury. This is terrible news for Detroit as they got demolished by the Bucks in game one, 121-86.
Blake Griffin is looking like he will be out the entire first round of the playoffs for Detroit. Not good news. #DetroitBasketball— TREVSTONE (@TrevStonePSE) April 15, 2019
After missing three games with the sprained knee Griffin decided to return April 5 against Oklahoma City and scored 45 points, but the knee swelled up again and limited his time in a game against Charlotte. And he has been out of action since.
Detroit will be looking to bounce back in game two on Wednesday. This injury more than likely means Detroit will be eliminated after the first round. So… I could probably make the title “Blake Griffin out for remainder of season” but I hope not.
Detroit would need to have players step up big time to pull off a win against Milwaukee. I’m not saying it can’t happen but in game one the only player to show up for Detroit was Luke Kennard and for some reason Pistons coach Dwane Casey wont start him or draw up plays for him.
After game one Blake Griffin told reporters:
