Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin won't play in the team's Game 1 matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday as he deals with left knee soreness, according to the Detroit News' Rod Beard.
He averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 75 appearances for the Pistons.
In large part because of Griffin's performance, the Pistons returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
He led the team in scoring and assists and was second in rebounding.
Maker showed promise early in his career in Milwaukee, but he made only 37.3 percent of his field-goal attempts in 29 games with the Pistons.
