Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey says All-Star power forward Blake Griffin's left knee injury isn't a long-term issue.

Griffin didn't play this past Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers and has already been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Indiana Pacers.

The Pistons are 39-37 on the season, which is good for sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Barring a collapse over the final six games of the season, Detroit should make the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Griffin has been a monster all season for the Pistons. The high-flyer is averaging 24.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while shooting 46.3 percent from the field, 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.9 percent from the free-throw line.

Griffin, 30, has recorded 21 double-doubles and two triple-doubles this season. The Pistons are 38-34 when he's in the lineup.

If Detroit wants to go on a run in the postseason, they will need Griffin to be 100 percent. The former No. 1 overall pick has a history of knee issues, so the Pistons should play it safe with him as the regular-season comes to a close.

The next time Griffin can suit up for the Pistons is on Wednesday. Detroit will play the Pacers again.
