Blake Griffin (knee) will be 'ready to go' for new season

Pistons GM Troy Weaver says Blake Griffin (knee) will be "ready to go" for the upcoming 2020-21 season.

Fantasy Impact

Griffin underwent season-ending knee surgery back in January, but he was reported to be at full health back in September. The 31-year-old will be entering his fourth season with the Pistons.

Blake Griffin (knee) feels 'a world of difference' in his knee

Blake Griffin (knee) feels Fri, Aug 14th 11:02am EDT By Alex Burns DET During his media teleconference on Thursday, Pistons star Blake Griffin told reporters that he feels "a world of difference" in his knee compared to January. He mentioned that his strength is way up and that he feels more explosive.

Fantasy Impact

The six-time NBA All-Star only played in 18 games during the 2019-2020 season before being shut down to undergo a season-ending procedure on his knee back in January. For a player that relies on athleticism as much as Griffin does, it's really encouraging to hear that he feels stronger and more explosive since the surgery. His contract ties him to Detroit through the 2021-2020 season and although the Pistons are entering rebuild mode, Griffin should still receive plenty of opportunity to produce when on the court. The 31-year-old forward hobbled his way to 15.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists across 18 games this season before being shutdown.

Blake Griffin (knee surgery) reportedly still not 100%

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Blake Griffin (knee surgery) feels great and is ‘ready to go’

In a recent interview, Pistons F Blake Griffin (knee surgery) told ESPN’s Sage Steele that “I feel great, so I’m ready to go whenever things pick back up.”

Fantasy Impact

Griffin had knee surgery in January after playing in just 18 games this season for the Pistons. He was averaging just 15.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 28 minutes per game. He shot a miserable 35.2 percent from the field, by far the worst shooting of his 11-year NBA career. Should the NBA resume play, Griffin will be ready, but temper expectations for the veteran forward, who could just play it safe with Detroit nowhere near a playoff berth. Hopefully Griffin can get back to his old ways to begin the 2020-2021 season. He won’t have Andre Drummond to contend with for rebounds any longer, as he’s since been traded to the Cavaliers. It’ll be Griffin and up-and-comer Christian Wood leading the way in the front court for Detroit next season.
