Blake Griffin PF LAC 17 Days

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.

Griffin (rest) won't play in Tuesday's preseason game, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

This is simply a day off, as the Clippers play back-to-back preseason games Tuesday and Wednesday.

Griffin scored 31 points (14-22 FG, 0-2 3P, 3-4 FT) with five rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Monday's preseason loss to the Jazz.

It seems safe to say that Griffin is ready for the regular season. If his offseason work to improve the range on his shot pays some dividends, he might even be able to top last year's career best 24.1 PPG.

Griffin has been working on the corner three, the Orange County Register's Dan Woike reports.

After pulling out of Team USA due to a fracture in his back, Griffin has apparently been a full participant so far in camp. Griffin attempted a career-high 12 three-pointers last season, but if he can refine a corner three-point shot in the same way that, say, Serge Ibaka has, then he would become an even more potent offensive weapon than he was last season when he was an MVP candidate. Griffin's two main weaknesses in fantasy coming into last season were his free-throw shooting and his lack of blocks relative to his position. However, in 2013-14 he took a major step at the charity stripe, hitting a career-best 71.5 percent of his free throws. If he adds a three-point shot, that would make up for his lack of blocked shots and make him a viable option early in drafts.

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."
