Injury update on Pistons forward Blake Griffin

The Detroit Pistons are in the midst of an extremely tight playoff race, with the final three playoff spots in the Eastern Conference up for grabs by five different teams, including the Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat.

Star forward Blake Griffin has missed the past two games with knee soreness, and did not participate in Tuesday’s practice session according to The Athletic. He will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday’s tilt against the Indiana Pacers at Little Caesars Arena.

Additionally, Luke Kennard didn’t participate in practice and is also listed as day to day.

Dwane Casey has message for Tom Izzo haters

On Thursday, the Michigan State Spartans defeated Bradley 76-65 to advance to the NCAA Tournament Round of 32.

But the Spartans win was not the news that stole the headlines over the next couple of days.

Instead, everybody and their brother showed the video and wrote about a couple of incidents which involved MSU head coach Tom Izzo yelling and getting in freshman Aaron Henry‘s face.

Some destroyed Izzo for his actions while most defended him, pointing out how much he loves his players and that this is something he has done for many years.

On Saturday, Detroit Pistons‘ head coach Dwane Casey was asked about Izzo’s coaching style and he had a message for anyone criticizing the Spartans’ coach for getting on his players.

As a Michigan fan who absolutely loves John Beilein and his coaching style, I almost equally love Tom Izzo and how he coaches his teams.

Keep it up, Tom.
