Blake Griffin held a conference call with the media where he discussed his rehab from knee surgery and his future plans with Detroit. He is not at 100% yet, but is doing on-court workouts and is confident he'll get there "quickly" according to Omari Sankofa of the Detroit Free Press. (Omari Sankofa on Twitter)
Griffin had surgery on his left knee in January - a recurring injury that's plagued him dating back to the 2018-2019 season. Though the Pistons are in the midst of a rebuild, Griffin's contract is fully guaranteed through the 2021-2022 season which doesn't bode well for his title chances given his age and storied injury history. However, the extended break from play has offered Griffin plenty of time to get healthy and ready for next season. He'll have less front-court competition with Andre Drummond now in Cleveland and he'll serve as a mentor and compliment to budding foward/center Christian Wood. Fantasy owners who believe in Griffin should be able to get him at a discount next season after putting up the worst numbers of his career but he'll still carry considerable risk. Griffin's 2019-2020 season ended averaging 15.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists across 18 games.
