Blake Griffin PF LAC 2 Days

Griffin posted just 10 points, five rebounds, and eight assists in 29 minutes of action Friday against the Sixers.

Griffin has been struggling of late, averaging just 17.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 5.0 assists over the last five games. He came back from a month-long injury just two weeks ago, and it's a good likelihood that its lingering effects are still bothering him. That being said, he's still worth owning in all leagues.

Griffin had 23 points (10-21 FG, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes in the win over New Orleans on Sunday.

Griffin stuffed the stat sheet Friday against the Wizards, posting 22 points, six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in 36 minutes of action.

Griffin has now played four games ever since returning from an elbow injury. He's averaging 17.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 blocks during that span. While he isn't scoring as much as he had been prior to his injury, it's encouraging to see him aggressive on the boards. That being said, he'll probably ease back into scoring 20-plus points per night sooner than later.

Griffin (elbow) returned to the starting lineup, scoring 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-3 FT) along with 11 rebounds and eight assists in 40 minutes against the Rockets on Sunday.

This was Griffin's first game back since February 6th. Griffin only attempted 10 shots, which makes sense as he was probably eased into the offensive gameplan in his first game back. With Griffin attempting an average of 17.5 shot attempts per game this season, we should expect him to return to his usual production soon. Spencer Hawes, who replaced Griffin in the starting lineup, only played three minutes tonight and is no threat to Griffin's playing time.

Griffin (elbow) will start in Sunday's game against the Rockets, the Orange County Register reports.

Griffin will assume his normal role in the starting lineup in lieu of getting acclimated back to the action by coming off the bench. There's still some concern for just how much time on the court he'll see but coach Doc Rivers has not imposed a minutes limit on Griffin. Either way, the All-Star can put up impressive numbers even in limited minutes.

Griffin (elbow) went through a light shootaround with the team Sunday morning, Arash Markazi of ESPN reports.

Griffin remains a game-time call for Sunday's matchup with Houston as he nears a return from a staph infection. The team likely won't announce his status until close to game-time (3:30 PM ET).

Griffin (elbow) is officially considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets, the Orange County Register reports.

Griffin was able to go through a full workout Friday so a return to the court Sunday is certainly not out of the question. When he eventually returns to the lineup Spencer Hawes should head back to the bench and DeAndre Jordan's production may also decline. Further news on Griffin's status should be released following Sunday's morning shootaround.

Griffin (elbow) went through a full workout Friday and a return Sunday is likely, ESPN's Arash Markazi reports.

The report from Markazi states that if Griffin cannot return Sunday, then he will definitely be able to make his return Tuesday, so this is music to his owner's ears. It seems like it will be safe to deploy Griffin in weekly leagues next week, even if there is a chance that his minutes may not be where they were before he was sidelined. Check back on his status prior to Sunday's game.

Griffin (elbow) will not play Friday against the Mavericks, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Griffin has not played since Feb. 6 after needing surgery on his right shoulder due to a staph infection and will now miss his 15th game since suffering the injury. He could return as soon as Sunday against the Rockets or Tuesday against the Hornets. Through the 51 games he has played this season, Griffin has averaged 21.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 0.2 three-pointers in 35 minutes per game. Although he is shooting a career-best 38 percent from beyond the arc, the fact that he's only attempting 0.4 shots from deep limits the value of his increased efficiency.

It looks as though Griffin will not play Friday in Dallas, but his return appears imminent. If he does not end up playing Sunday, his next opportunity will come Tuesday when the Clippers host the Hornets. Griffin has missed the past 14 contests with a staph infection in his right elbow.
