Blake Griffin (left knee surgery) said he's not 100 percent yet but hopes to be "quickly."
This is why we take players comments about their health with a grain of salt as Griffin said in early May that he was 100 percent. According to Omari Sankofa of the Detroit Free Press, Griffin recently sat down with his trainer to "review rehab notes and put together a plan to escalate his training." As for his future in Detroit, Griffin is an awkward spot because he's no longer in his prime at age 31 and the Pistons are preparing for a long rebuild. What makes this even more complicated is the fact that Griffin has one more guaranteed year on his bloated contract followed by a player option worth nearly $39M in 2021-22. Jun 14 12:33 pm (EST)
