Griffin scored 19 points (7-15 FG, 0-1 3P, 5-10 FT) with 10 rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Monday's loss to the Bulls.
His struggles at the free throw line mirrored the rest of the Clippers' lineup, as they shot just 46 percent (10 for 22) from the charity stripe on the night. Griffin has now picked up two double-doubles in his last three games, and his somewhat weak early season rebounding numbers are purely the result of a one-board game from a couple of weeks ago dragging down his average.

Griffin has been charged with one count of misdemeanor assault, ESPN.com reports.
The charge comes from an altercation at a night club one month ago. Griffin will likely face discipline from the NBA, so it's worth monitoring his situation from a fantasy perspective.

Griffin (illness) scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 5-7 FT) with 10 rebounds and six assists in 37 minutes during Monday's loss to the Spurs.
He didn't seem bothered by the stomach bug that he played through over the weekend. This was the first double-double Griffin has managed to collect this season, but it won't be the last.

Griffin (illness) will play Monday against the Spurs, Jovan Buha of Fox Sports reports.
Griffin was dealing with a stomach virus over the weekend, but it did not keep him from playing 35 minutes against Portland on Saturday. Coach Doc Rivers said Griffin is feeling better, but he noted teammate DeAndre Jordan appears to have picked up the virus. Jordan will also play Monday, but he'll be less than 100 percent.

Griffin has been dealing with a stomach virus but still managed to start Saturday's game against Portland, the Orange County Register reports.
The fact that Griffin hasn't had to miss any games means that his stomach bug won't likely affect him in the future. Even so, he'll be able to rest Sunday as the Clippers don't play the Spurs until Monday.

Griffin wasn't in foul trouble, he wasn't battling any kind of injury, he simply wasn't hitting his shots Wednesday night. He finished the evening with 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-1 FT), one rebound, and one assist in the loss to Golden State.
It wasn't the best night we've seen from Griffin, as he managed season lows in shot attempts, rebounds, and trips to the line. That being said, this was likely a night where he let the team's rivalry and his personal emotions weigh him down too much to help his team. Griffin will likely remember tonight next time these two teams play, until then he'll be focusing on playing Portland this Saturday.

Griffin scored 31 points (14-21 FG, 3-4 FT) with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 38 minutes during Monday's win over the Jazz.
It's already his second 30+ point night of the young season, and with a healthy Chris Paul getting him the ball Griffin might be able to top last season's career best of 24.1 PPG.

Griffin led his team in scoring and minutes on Sunday, but had a rough time getting there by going 6-20 from the field. Still he put up good numbers all around, finishing with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and a block in 38 minutes.
Griffin will have better shooting nights down the road, and this can be counted as just an off night from the All-Star. Griffin attempted only five shots in the second half, which could show how he failed to establish a groove all night, as did many of the Clippers tonight. Look for Griffin to bounce back on Monday against the Jazz, who he normally plays very well against.

Griffin was all over the floor Friday night against the Lakers, scoring 39 points (13-23 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 11-12 FT).
In addition to his scoring outburst, Griffin also had seven rebounds and four assists. He's now scored a total of 62 combined points in his first two games. The surrounding a possible MVP season for Griffin seems to be totally reasonable at this point in the season.
