Pistons’ Star Blake Griffin Undergoes Knee Surgery, Out for the Year
Blake Griffin’s season is officially over.
The Detroit Pistons star has undergone season-ending surgery on his left knee and will use the remainder of the season focusing on extended rehab. Griffin has struggled to remain healthy and find consistency on the floor this season and in only 18 games, averaged just 15.5 points per game, the lowest total of his nine-year career.

According to Tim Bontemps of ESPN, Griffin underwent an arthroscopic procedure on Tuesday morning. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
In the meantime, the Pistons may be ready to blow things up and are reportedly shopping star big man Andre Drummond as well as forward Markieff Morris. The pairing of Drummond and Griffin has failed to create the impact the Pistons were originally hoping for.
Once Griffin returns to the floor, this Pistons team may look very different.
