Griffin will get the night off Monday vs. the Bucks due to “injury management”. That’s not all that surprising since the Pistons are on the second leg of a back-to-back, and Griffin has already missed time this season due to a concussion. Josh Jackson has also been ruled out vs. the Bucks with an ankle injury, which leaves the team a bit thin in the frontcourt. Rookie Saddiq Bey is expected to draw the start at power forward, and he’s averaged a solid 13.0 points and 7.1 rebounds in two starts in place of Griffin this season. That makes him an interesting value option on FanDuel.
The Bucks have struggled to a 3-3 record to start the year, but they still rank first in Net Rating. They are expected to secure a comfortable win over the Pistons and are currently favored by 16 points on FanDuel Sportsbook.
