Pistons’ Blake Griffin suffers concussion thanks to Wiseman elbow

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin has suffered a concussion. He was injured on Tuesday night against the Golden State Warriors.

Griffin has entered into concussion protocol. As a result, there’s a good chance that he misses the upcoming games against the Boston Celtics on Friday and Sunday.

He received a concussion when he took an elbow to the head. Warriors rookie center James Wiseman was the man responsible for elbowing Griffin in the head.

Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said, according to WXYZ Sports Director Brad Galli, took two shots to the head in the first half.

If Griffin is not able to play against the Celtics, then Saddiq Bey and Sekou Doumbouya could potentially receive more playing time. In addition, Casey could use the depth on the bench to potentially fill in Griffin’s scoring before he is able to return.

Griffin could potentially be off the court for at least a week before he is able to return. He will have to pass the strict regulations set forth in the NBA to return to the court.

If he does not play in the series against the Celtics, the Pistons play two straight against the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their first game of the series is on January 4th and then again on January 6th at Fiserv Forum.
