Doc Rivers again shot down the Blake Griffin trade rumors during a recent interview.
"We knew none of [the trade rumors were] true. We figured that was one of you guys starting these rumors here in Boston." said Rivers. "It happens, unfortunately. Blake and [Chris Paul] are free agents [after this season]. Just like last year Oklahoma [City] had to deal with that, now it's our turn." Rivers has time and again said that he has absolutely no desire to unload Griffin or Paul, but that won't stop the rumors from persisting. For what it's worth, there's reportedly a strong feeling from Griffin's camp that he'll re-sign with the Clippers once he opts out of his contract this summer. Sep 7 - 12:38 PM

Blake Griffin said that he "didn't deserve a summer break" after an injury-plagued 2015-16 season, and he's only taken two weeks off all summer.

"I took a week off after I had surgery and then started rehab a week after that," Griffin said, apparently referring to a bone marrow procedure last April. "I kind of had in my mind, I’m just going to [work] all the way through." He didn't give specifics about his workouts or his status for training camp, which leaves him in limbo for fantasy purposes, but he should at least be ready for opening night.

Blake Griffin is reportedly planning on re-signing with the Clippers when he hits free agency during the 2017 offseason.

Griffin is reportedly uninterested in leaving Los Angeles, and Doc Rivers is reportedly so confident that Griffin will stay that he's not even willing to engage in any trade talks involving the Clippers' franchise forward. There's still a long ways to go until Griffin is a free agent, but the odds favor the Clippers retaining him, as they'll be able to grant Griffin the biggest payday.
Aug 23 - 6:06 PM

In addition to the Thunder, the Celtics, Magic and Bulls are also expected to pursue Blake Griffin in free agency, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

Griffin has an ETO (early termination option) after the 2016-17 season, and he's widely expected to hit free agency in order to land a bigger payday. Boston has been mentioned as a possible Griffin destination prior, but the Celtics are connected to just about any big name (remember Kevin Love at Fenway?) because of their treasure chest of assets and ongoing search for a superstar. The reality is that almost the entire league will be in on Griffin if he hits free agency without a commitment to the Clippers, and these types of rumors—no matter how outlandish— will only intensify moving forward.
Aug 6 - 6:43 PM

The Thunder are expected to pursue Blake Griffin next summer.

Griffin has a player option for the 2017-18 season, but he's fully expected to opt out due to the rising salary cap. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical said that Griffin "has his own tensions" with Chris Paul in Los Angeles, but it's still unclear if the interest is mutual between OKC and the All-Star power forward. The Thunder are eyeing another star to play alongside Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo and Steven Adams, and right now it appears that Griffin is on the top of their list.
Aug 5 - 9:34 AM

In an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Doc Rivers made it clear that Blake Griffin isn't going anywhere.

Specifically, Rivers said teams aren't even calling because they know the Clippers won't move him. In regards to the Blake to Boston rumors, Rivers said he's talked to Danny Ainge twice this summer, but it was simply about golf. Needless to say, a trade doesn't seem imminent and Griffin is likely focusing on rehabbing his partially torn quad.

The Thunder are reportedly interested in signing Blake Griffin after the 2016-17 season.

The Thunder will have plenty of competition as Griffin will be one of the top unrestricted free agents on the market next summer, but they could have an advantage as Griffin hails from Oklahoma. The Thunder are reportedly interested in teaming up Griffin and Russell Westbrook, but Griffin has also been mentioned in various trade rumors so there are other factors at play here. For the time being, Griffin is focusing on rehabbing his partially torn quad for 2016-17 and will enter the season as an early-round fantasy draft pick if we hear positive reports before draft season.

According to sources of Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, some executives around the league believe that Blake Griffin's partially torn quad is still a "serious thing."

"I still think there’s a concern with his leg," said one unnamed rival executive. "We looked into him, and we’re hearing that’s a pretty serious thing. I’m not saying you don’t go after him, but you’d better be really sure about that leg before you go making any big commitments." Griffin's 2015-16 campaign was cut short by the partially torn quad injury, and he reportedly required a bone marrow transplant at the end of the season. Griffin won't be suiting up for Team USA in order to give himself some extra time to recover, and we're sure to have plenty of updates on the health of his leg leading up to camp.
Jul 16 - 9:55 AM

Blake Griffin (quad) has begun shooting free throws.

Griffin had a bone marrow procedure in April to speed the recovery of his torn quad, but he didn't require surgery. He won't be playing in the Olympics and should have plenty of time to get healthy for training camp.
Jun 23 - 7:10 PM

The Clippers announced Blake Griffin (quad) will not play in the 2016 Olympics.

There were some other reports of Griffin not playing in Brazil and now it's official. He's not expected to have surgery on his injured quad and should be ready for the start of next season.
May 6 - 5:40 PM

Blake Griffin will not require surgery to repair his left quad.

Griffin underwent a bone marrow procedure on Wednesday, which is similar to a PRP injection and effectively eliminates the need for surgery. He's going to be sidelined for at least the next three months, so in addition to missing the remainder of the postseason, he won't be able to participate during the 2016 Olympic Games. He should be fine for the 2016-17 season, though.
Apr 28 - 4:07 PM

Blake Griffin (left quad tendon) was reportedly told he could re-tear his left quad by playing through injury.

We have to give Griffin credit on this one as many players would have elected for surgery and missed the rest of the season. Griffin had a bone marrow procedure on his injured quad Wednesday morning, but shouldn't have any issue returning in time for training camp. The 27-year-old will continue to be a high-risk, high-reward pick in 2016-17 fantasy drafts.
Apr 28 - 11:07 AM

Blake Griffin had a bone marrow procedure on his injured left quad Wednesday morning.

Griffin isn't on the Clippers' bench during Game 5 on Wednesday, and now we know why. A recent MRI revealed no further damage to his quad but there could be more to Griffin's injury than the Clippers have disclosed. He's already been ruled out for the playoffs, and the only good news is that he has a full offseason to rest and recuperate.
Apr 27 - 11:48 PM

Blake Griffin (quad) and Chris Paul (hand) will miss the remainder of the postseason for the Clippers.

This is a crushing blow to the Clippers' postseason run, and it would be shocking to see them advance out of the first-round at this point. With both Paul and Griffin done for the postseason, just about everyone on the Clippers roster will need to step up with guys like Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford and Jeff Green seeing the largest value boost. For what it's worth, the MRI did not reveal any further damage to Griffin's left quad, so it sounds like the Clippers are just being cautious after he aggravated the injury in Game 4.

Blake Griffin (quad) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Griffin is currently listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Blazers, and we should have a better idea on his status after the MRI. With Chris Paul (hand) already out for Game 5, we'll see a ton of Jeff Green, Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford on Wednesday night if Griffin is also forced to the sidelines. Stay tuned.
