Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin is reportedly meeting with a specialist in Los Angeles to discuss season-ending knee surgery, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Griffin has not played since December 28th against San Antonio.
Griffin, who has been clearly hobbled in his return to action this season, has averaged 15.5 points per contest. This is a far cry from the 24.5 points per game he averaged last season in his herculean effort to drive the Pistons to the postseason.
After playing last postseason on a torn meniscus in his left knee, Griffin spent much of the summer rehabbing the injury. Unfortunately, it appears Griffin may have to go under the knife yet again, as the ailing superstar has struggled to get his body right. If Griffin is forced to shut it down for the year, the former Oklahoma Sooner will have one year remaining on his contract in addition to another year under a player option. Over those next two seasons, the Pistons are set to owe Griffin $75.7 million.
