Without Griffin, the Pistons were no match for the top-seeded Bucks in Game 1 on Sunday night, losing 121-86 at Fiserv Forum.

Pistons star Blake Griffin, who sat out Detroit's National Basketball Association playoff loss Sunday to the Bucks with a sore left knee, isn't expected to play at all in the first round Eastern Conference series, Yahoo Sports reported early Monday, citing unidentified sources.

Griffin has battled the ailment for the last several weeks and missed the must-win season finale against the New York Knicks last week.

Facebook might fold Messenger back into its main app
This used to be the case back then before Facebook made a decision to spurn off it into a full blown dedicated app. People used it like how we used Twitter DMs and it was called Inbox where we could privately chat with people.

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.

According to Goodwill, Griffin does not have structural damage in his knee and it remains unclear if he will require any type of minor procedure during the offseaosn. Griffin and team doctors will decide the best course of action when the season concludes. Griffin, who had played his most regular season games (75) since 2013-14, enjoyed a career campaign while snapping a four-year absence from the All-Star Game. The others were Brooklyn's Kenny Atkinson, Denver's Michael Malone, Indiana's Nate McMillan, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, the Los Angeles Clippers' Doc Rivers, Utah's Quin Snyder and Portland's Terry Stotts.

Griffin, 30, averaged a team-high 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game this season.
