Pistons F Griffin day-to-day heading into playoffs

Blake Griffin’s sore left knee remains bothersome enough to keep the Detroit Pistons forward listed as day-to-day heading into Saturday’s playoff opener against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.Griffin did not play Wednesday at New York even with a playoff spot on the line. The Pistons were able to roll past the lowly Knicks anyway and grab the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.Griffin’s knee issues go back further than that. He took himself out of Tuesday’s 100-93 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, playing just 18 minutes.
