DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin has been cleared to for basketball-related activities, the team announced on Thursday.
According to the team, the medical staff cleared Griffin, who has started to "return to game action progression."
Griffin hasn't played this season because of hamstring and knee issues. The team said they will monitor him on a day-to-day basis to see when he can return to action.
The Pistons also said they are monitoring Derrick Rose's hamstring strain on a day-to-day basis before he returns, but Reggie Jackson will remain out with a lower back issue.
