  Report: Blake Griffin to make season debut on Monday Griffin has not played at all this season due to knee and hamstring injuries. He was cleared for all basketball activities and was practicing during the week, suggesting a return was close. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the debut will happen in the Pistons’ home game against Minnesota.Griffin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in April and has a history of knee injuries. The Pistons have said they will handle the forward carefully this season due to the issues.

The Detroit Lions have discussed shutting down quarterback Matthew Stafford for the remainder of the campaign, but the veteran still hopes to play this season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

In fact, Stafford's been "maniacal" about getting back on the field before the year's done, a source told Schefter.

The 31-year-old has missed Detroit's last two games with fractures in his back. Though the Lions enter Week 12 at 3-6-1, Stafford has not yet been shut down for the season.

Doctors previously told the signal-caller that most players with his injury would be sidelined for six weeks.

Lions fined for violating injury report policy with Stafford .
The Detroit Lions, head coach Matt Patricia, and general manager Bob Quinn were fined $75,000, $25,000, and $10,000, respectively, for violating the NFL Injury Report Policy, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The infractions are a result of the team designating quarterback Matthew Stafford as questionable before a Nov. 10 game against the Chicago Bears. The Lions purportedly knew Stafford would be unable to play by Friday of that week, as tests had revealed fractures in his back.Stafford hasn't suited up for a game since Nov. 3. The Lions have labeled him week-to-week since then, refusing to place him on season-ending injured reserve.
