Blake Griffin likely out for first round of playoffs

Blake Griffin is expected to not be available for the Detroit Pistons’ first round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Yahoo Sports’ Vincent Goodwill, there is a “slim chance” Griffin plays this weekend, meaning he will be out for at least three games.

This was the same issue that caused Griffin to miss 5 of the Pistons’ last 7 games.

Griffin told this to reported following the Pistons’ 121-86 blowout loss in game 1:

Obviously, it’s very, very frustrating. You sacrifice your body throughout the year and play through little injuries to get to this point. Obviously, very frustrated. I never like to feel like I’m leaving my guys out there.

I have to do what our organization, our training staff, our doctors think is best—and that’s the bottom line.”

The Pistons needed Griffin to have a remote shot at defeating the 1 seeded Bucks, but they have even less of a chance without him.
