The Detroit Pistons have received some good news on the Blake Griffin injury front.
After missing the team’s first nine games this season, the All-Star forward has been cleared for all basketball activities. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Griffin is now considered day-to-day.
Griffin underwent off-season knee surgery and has been dealing with a hamstring issue. He’s seemingly been close to a return for some time now, but had yet to be cleared by the Pistons’ medical staff. That’s now changed.
There’s a good chance Griffin will be on the court when Detroit takes on Indiana Friday.
Detroit sits at just 4-5 on the season and has missed Griffin’s skillset on offense in a big way. The team ranks 20th in the NBA in scoring.
Griffin, 30, is coming off a career-best 2018-19 season that saw him average 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.
