The Detroit Pistons announced on Thursday that forward Blake Griffin has been cleared to participate in all basketball-related activities, with the hopes of returning to game action. Griffin has yet to play this season because of what the team is calling left hamstring and posterior knee soreness.

A six-time All-Star, Griffin appeared in 75 games last season for Detroit, his most since 2013-14. He averaged a career-high 25.5 points to go with 7.5 rebounds. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in the offseason.

The Pistons said Griffin is day-to-day.
