The Detroit Pistons will be without guard Avery Bradley, who will be shut down for at least a week, according to Pistons’ head coach Stan Van Gundy.

“He’s going to be shut down for at least a week,” Stan Van Gundy said on Tuesday, via NBA.com.

“We’ll go at least seven days and then week to week. It’s going to take some time. He’ll basically do nothing for the next seven days and then we’ll see where he is and whether we’re starting him back or not.”

Bradley will be re-evaluated.

Detroit originally thought of his injury as a right abductor strain, but now believe that his symptoms are showing a sports hernia.

Pistons’ Reggie Jackson Says Teams Takes Andre Drummond for Granted

Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson is heaping praise on his teammate, big man Andre Drummond, who he feels that the team often times takes for granted.

“I’d be lying if I said we didn’t [take Drummond for granted],” Jackson said, according to Vince Ellis of Detroit Free Press. “I think a lot of times we rely on him heavily for rebounds. On some nights when we get outrebounded, we’re solely looking for him to do it and not necessarily always helping him.”

“When you get a guy who over the last few years get around 14, 15 (rebounds per game), unfortunately it’s hard not to take him for granted, but we definitely appreciate him being the best (rebounder).”

Drummond is having a solid season, posting 18.9 points, 16.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.

Detroit Pistons superstar forward Blake Griffin isn’t letting criticism of his game impact his play on the court, in fact Griffin is using that same criticism as motivation this season as the Pistons embark on the 2018-2019 regular season.

“The past two, three years, all I hear is how bad I am,” Griffin said, according to NBA.com. “And, you know, I’ve been hurt, had bad games. I haven’t even played the way I have. But we’ve talked about it: This summer, being able to work out for the first time in three summers, is huge. Last three summers, I was fighting and working as hard as I could to get healthy to be able to play. This summer, I was able to really put time in and work on my game, on my body. I’ve always been a big believer in hard work pays off.”

Griffin made headlines already this season for his 50-point game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
