The Detroit Pistons are listing Blake Griffin as out and Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard as questionable to face the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.
Griffin played 32 minutes on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks, so the Pistons are just resting him on the second night of a back to back.
#Pistons Blake Griffin listed as OUT tonight at #Bucks. Luke Kennard (hip) and Derrick Rose (left foot soreness) are questionable.
Rookies Sekou Doumbouya and Jordan Bone listed as AVAILABLE.#DFS

The Pistons defeated the Hawks by 25 points. Griffin, who missed the first 10 games of the season, had his best game of the year versus the Hawks. The high-flyer put up 24 points while shooting 9-of-16 from the field and 2-of-7 from beyond the arc.
Rose played only 17 minutes against the Hawks since the Pistons won in blowout fashion. The former MVP scored 11 points while shooting 4-of-6 from the floor, including 3-of-4 from the 3-point line.
Kennard saw 31 minutes of action against the Hawks. The lefty put up nine points. The Pistons snapped a five-game losing streak by defeating the Hawks. They are 5-10 on the season.
Detroit will likely lose to the Bucks on Saturday, especially since Griffin is out. Questionable usually means out for Rose, who has an extensive injury history. The Pistons are being very careful with Rose's usage and minutes this season. He's averaging 17.6 points per game in 23.8 minutes per night.
