Drummond says he talks to Griffin all the time and that Pistons players still believe in the All-Star forward.
“I'm in constant communication with him on court and always telling him he's fine,” Drummond said, via the Detroit Free Press. “There's nothing he can do about it right now. He's missing shots and really can't get himself into a rhythm, but I told him that we all believe in him.
“Just keep playing, keep doing the same things and those shots will fall. We still need him defensively so don't worry about the offensive end. It will come.”
Griffin, who missed the first 10 games of the season, is averaging just 15.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 16 games for the Pistons while shooting 35.9 percent from the field, 25.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.4 percent from the free-throw line.
It's clear as day that Griffin isn't healthy. The Pistons have played and looked like a better team when Griffin isn't in the lineup.
Barring some miracle, the Pistons aren't going to see the Blake they got last season when he put up 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists and made the All-NBA third team. It may be a good time for Detroit to embark on a rebuild and consider trading Drummond, Griffin, Reggie Jackson or Derrick Rose.
