Pistons' Blake Griffin likely to miss first-round series with Bucks

Mike Budenholzer Checks All of the Boxes For Coach of the Year

2018-2019 was Budenholzer's first as the head coach of a completely revitalized Milwaukee Bucks that profited from selfless play, the emergence of Giannis Antetokounmpo, and selfless play from the rest of the unit.

The Pistons are concerned that could happen in the playoff series against the Bucks, even with the possibility of Griffin having 10 days off heading into Game 3 on Wednesday at Little Caesars Arena.

On the road, the eighth-seeded Pistons lost by 25 to the team with the best record in the league at Fiserv Forum.

Griffin had been battling a left knee injury for the past few weeks.

Rajasthan made a strong comeback, removing Surya Kumar Yadav (16) and Kieron Pollard (6) to put the pressure back on the host. Rajasthan Royals won the toss and put Mumbai Indians in to bat in their IPL match in Mumbai on Saturday.

"Griffin will be listed as day to day for the remainder of the series, with a league source calling it a "slim chance" he plays this weekend", Goodwill reported.

Griffin has been hobbled by a sore left knee for much of the last month, missing four of the final seven regular-season games and sitting out Game 1 on Sunday, as Milwaukee pasted Detroit 121-86 in the series opener.

Despite the team's must-win scenario in the season finale, Griffin has been a huge catalyst behind the Pistons successful season. The former No. 1 overall pick averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists while leading the Pistons to a late-season playoff push and just their second postseason berth since 2009.
