Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to alleviate soreness that plagued him the final two weeks of the season.

The club said Griffin had the successful procedure done in Los Angeles and that he’s “not expected to miss any offseason training or preparation for the 2019-20” season.

Griffin missed the first two games of Detroit’s first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pistons fell to Milwaukee in four games.

Griffin, 30, comes off his best season in years. The six-time All-Star became the first Pistons player in history to post averages of 24-plus points, seven-plus rebounds and five-plus assists during the regular season. He made a career-high 189 3-pointers.
