DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit Pistons say star forward Blake Griffin has a bone bruise on his right ankle and will be evaluated again in a week.

Griffin was scratched from Thursday night’s win over Washington and had an MRI that night. The Pistons say a timetable for his return will be provided “as appropriate” — Detroit’s playoff chances are slim, and the regular-season finale is April 11.

The Pistons acquired Griffin in January in a blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Clippers. Detroit is five games behind Milwaukee for the final postseason spot in the Eastern Conference.
