Forward Blake Griffin's season debut will have to wait another day.

Griffin has been ruled out when Detroit Pistons (3-4) host New York Knicks (1-6) on Wednesday. He’ll return when they ‘give me the green light,’ Griffin told Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Pistons have anticipated Griffin being unavailable until early November after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in April. The team plans to re-evaluate Griffin's status on Wednesday after rehabbing from soreness in his knee and hamstring, Charania reported.

“I feel great and I’m ready to go whenever they give me the green light,” Griffin said The Athletic. 
“I’m close, very close. The training staff tells me it’s one day at a time. They tell me what I’m doing the next day, and that’s it, because they know I’d go crazy if I have a timetable.”

The 30-year-old averaged 45.5 points, 7.5 rebounds in 75 games with the Pistons last season. It was his first 70-plus game campaign in five seasons.
