The Detroit Pistons will once again be without star forward Blake Griffin Wednesday night at home against the Indiana Pacers. He’s already missed the past two games after experiencing knee soreness during shootaround before Detroit’s matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers.
During his pre-game press conference, head coach Dwane Casey provided an update on Griffin’s condition.
“No, it’s not structural (Griffin’s injury),” he said. “He’s working, trying to get it back to where he is comfortable with it. He’s still not comfortable with it so the medical people made a decision to hold him until he is comfortable and can go with it.
With a record of 39-38, the Pistons currently occupy the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the Brooklyn Nets and a full game ahead of the 8th place Miami Heat.
