Advice: Ugly shooting has been a consistent issue for Griffin this season, who is currently connecting on a career-worst 42.9% of his shot attempts.

That said, he's still managed to produce top-60 value on the year and there's room for improvement, so he's someone to think about as a buy-low target.
