Blake Griffin to miss week with bone bruise in right ankle”

Griffin did not play in Thursday's 103-92 win over the Washington Wizards, a late scratch initially ruled out with a right ankle contusion.

According to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com on Friday, Griffin's ailment was diagnosed as a bone bruise, and it will be re-evaluated in a week.

Griffin had always been a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, being taken No. 1 overall in 2009 out of Oklahoma.

In 25 games with the Pistons this season, Griffin is averaging 19.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.2 assists per outing. Over 58 games in total this season, he is posting 21.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists, which would be a career high for the forward.

Anthony Tolliver likely will start in place of Griffin.

Despite this, they still find themselves five games out of the final playoff spot back east with seven games remaining. Henry Ellenson chipped in nine points and five rebounds off the bench.

Jackson will see the majority of shot attempts with Griffin on the shelf, mired as the lone scoring option along with Andre Drummond, who's coming off a 24-point, 23-point double-double.
