Griffin hasn’t played at all this season because of hamstring and knee issues. The Pistons are 4-5 without him.
Detroit also released updates on other injured players Thursday. Derrick Rose (hamstring strain) and Tim Frazier (shoulder strain) are day to day, continuing treatment and rehab. Reggie Jackson (lower back stress reaction) remains out.
