Blake Griffin PF LAC 1 Month

Griffin, who had to pull out of Team USA practices due to a fracture in his back, said the issue is not serious and he is still able to work out, reports.

Griffin suffered the injury during the playoffs last season and said he pulled out of the USA camp in order to let his back heal so that he's fully healthy for training camp this fall.

Blake Griffin withdrew from Team USA camp to rest a small fracture in his back, which is not believed to be serious.

We're not going to tell you not to get worried about a fracture in anybody's back, but owners should exercise a bit of discretion before assigning any long-term concern to this. The injury reportedly isn't serious and it occurred during the playoffs, which may explain some of the (relative) lack of explosion he showed against the Thunder. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne adds that Griffin should make a "full recovery."

Blake Griffin will not play for Team USA this summer at the FIBA World Cup in Spain.

"I want to focus and dedicate 100 percent of my energy on improving and preparing frmo the upcoming season with the Clippers," Griffin said. The Clippers were a bit of a letdown despite seeing Griffin having his best season, DeAndre Jordan breaking out, and Chris Paul becoming a more well-rounded scorer. Griffin's improved free throw shooting makes him a much more fantasy-friendly player to own, making him worth a look in the second round of upcoming drafts.

The Clippers are expected to make a big pitch to LeBron James this summer, but it's highly unlikely that Blake Griffin would be included in any deal.

Doc Rivers has reportedly told Griffin he's "untouchable," and we're assuming the same is true of Chris Paul. But outside of those two, the rest of the Clips are probably fair game.

Blake Griffin scored 22 points vs. the Thunder during Thursday's 104-98 loss to go with eight boards, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He fouled out in this game and was constantly showing his displeasure with the refs throughout the night. The Clippers were not really attacking the basket down the stretch, which didn't make much sense because of Serge Ibaka (calf) not able to finish the game. Griffin's offensive repertoire grew in a big way this season with his career-high 24.1 points per game, but he still has room to grow at age 25.

Blake Griffin had his first double-double of the playoffs with 24 points, 17 rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 10-of-20 shooting in Tuesday's controversial Game 5 loss to the Thunder.

Griffin hit 4-of-5 free throws, but the one he missed, his last of the night, proved to be very costly, as the Clippers lost by one point after the Thunder went on a 17-3 run to finish out the game. There were missed calls, controversial calls, and instant replay controversy, but the bottom line is the Clippers had the game in hand and didn't finish the deal. Chris Paul fouled Russell Westbrook on a 3-pointer that resulted in three free points for OKC, and also had two crucial late turnovers, one of which he called the dumbest play of his career, finishing with 17 points and 14 assists. Jamal Crawford had 19 points and several ill-advised late shots, and Matt Barnes and J.J. Redick each scored 16 points in the loss. Game 6 is in L.A. on Thursday. See you there.

The Clippers have been out-rebounded in all three games by an average of 14.3, while giving up an average of 11.1 offensive rebounds per game, and that will simply not cut it.

"I think with the exception of the first game, the last two games we haven't been very good," Blake Griffin said. "I thought they kind of got everything they wanted the last two games. They got to the rim. They got easy buckets. They got threes. They got everything. So we've got to be better." The Clippers will need to play with a sense of urgency if they hope to even out the series for Sunday's Game 4 in Los Angeles.

Blake Griffin scored 34 points on 13-of-22 shooting (8-of-9 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks in the Clippers' 118-112 Game 3 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Griffin played very well and showed off his trademark athleticism at times, but it hasn't been enough to take over the game playing across from the Thunder's big guns. Chris Paul scored 21 points with 16 assists and the same held true for him, as Russell Westbrook controlled the pace and went toe-to-toe with the Point God all night. Jamal Crawford scored 20 points but needed 18 shots to do it, and his defense was once again a big problem down the stretch. The Clippers will try to right the ship in Game 4 on Sunday.

Blake Griffin scored 23 points during Monday's Game 1 win over the Thunder, adding five boards, five assists and one turnover in 31 minutes.

The Clippers didn't get much out of their frontcourt with DeAndre Jordan posting just seven points and five boards while Griffin shot just 7-of-16 from the field. They also lost the rebounding battle 47-31 and became just the ninth team since 1986 to score more than 120 points while grabbing less than 32 rebounds in a playoff game. Obviously, none of this mattered with Chris Paul turning in one of the best games of these playoffs.

Blake Griffin fouled out in 40 minutes during Game 6's loss to the Warriors on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, nine boards, five assists and one block.

He shot just 8-of-24 from the field and Draymond Green was outstanding on defense. Griffin wasn't nearly as aggressive in getting to the rim and it led to just 24 points in the paint tonight. The Clippers only had six points in the paint in the first half and never really got into a rhythm, making just 36.4 percent from the field. Griffin should have a better showing in Game 7 on Saturday.
