The Pistons are off to another terrible start and their bad luck continued on Tuesday night. Blake Griffin left the game early after he got absolutely rocked by Warriors rookie James Wiseman.
Griffin went down immediately after catching the elbow and was on another planet. He didn't return to the game and was being evaluated for a concussion.

That wasn't just an elbow, that was an elbow from the top rope. Griffin's lucky he didn't take a little nap on the floor after that.
Consider the trip to another planet a gift from the concussion gods. It could have been worse.
