Blake Griffin (knee) is being listed as out for Saturday against the Nuggets.

He is very likely to return on the upcoming road trip, but it won't be the first game unless something changes. Austin Rivers gets the biggest bump with Blake out because Luc Mbah a Moute is too important to the perimeter defense and should be starting. There's a great chance Griffin returns next week.
Jan 20 - 4:11 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) could return to game action on the upcoming road trip.

The Clippers start their road trip on Saturday and won't be coming back home until Feb. 2. Griffin has been going through some sprints and DeAndre Jordan seemed encouraged. "I’m ready for Blake to come back. I know he’s extremely ready to be back on the floor," Jordan said. He doesn't have a target date, but another loss on Thursday could move BG's timetable up.
Jan 20 - 3:07 AM

Blake Griffin (knee) was running at full speed in practice on Thursday.

He was doing some more on-court work and going through some tests. Yesterday, coach Doc Rivers said it'll likely be another 1-2 weeks before Griffin can return. Upon his return, he'll likely affect Austin Rivers, Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass.
Jan 19 - 3:02 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Blake Griffin (knee) is still about 1-2 weeks away from his return.

That means he'll be on the back end of his 4-6 week timeline from back on Dec. 20. Griffin is starting to do some on-court work and ran some sprints before Saturday's game. The Clippers may have a tough time winning games with Chris Paul (hamstring) also out. Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers should be carrying the offense.
Jan 18 - 2:07 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) ran light sprints along the sideline at Staples Center during warm-ups on Saturday.

He is coming along nicely and remains on his 4-6 week timetable. Griffin has been taking some shots and there has been no sign of a setback. It may be a handful of games before he's back to his old self, but his owners may get him back within the next week.
Jan 14 - 3:40 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Blake Griffin (knee) feels great and his 4-6 week timetable is still accurate.

"All things are good for him," Rivers said. Griffin has been getting some shots up and is coming along just fine. He was ruled out for 4-6 weeks back on Dec. 20, so it's possible he's back this month. The Clippers will likely manage him upon his return, so Griffin may not be himself until the All-Star break.
Jan 11 - 10:46 PM

Blake Griffin was spotted getting up some shots following Tuesday's practice.

This is the first time we've heard of Griffin going through any on-court activities, and he's now hit the 3-week mark of his initial 4-6 week timetable, so he's definitely getting close to a return. Doc Rivers said that he "looked great" during a recent checkup and that he'd prefer that Griffin isn't with a minutes limit upon his return, and if that's the case, he'd likely be hitting the court closer to the 6-week mark. Austin Rivers and Marreese Speights will continue to see an uptick in minutes sans Blake.
Jan 10 - 2:32 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) had a routine follow-up examination on Thursday and coach Doc Rivers said Griffin "looked great" and is making progress.

Griffin had surgery to remove loose bodies from his knee on Dec. 20. The Clippers said he would be out three to six weeks. It sounds like the team is going to err on the side of caution with Blake and wait until he is as close to 100% as possible. "At the end of the day, he’s just going to be really healthy before he gets on the floor," Rivers said. "It’s a long year and we got to look at it that way." Rivers also said he’d prefer that Griffin not have any minutes restrictions when he returns.
Jan 7 - 10:55 AM

Blake Griffin underwent successful arthroscopic right knee surgery on Tuesday, and his timetable to return has been set at 4-6 weeks.

Griffin's initial timetable was set at 3-6 weeks, but now that he's actually had the procedure we have a more accurate estimate of the amount of time he's expected to miss. Paul Pierce is being listed as the probable starter for Tuesday night's game against the Nuggets, and it'll likely be a combination of Pierce, Brandon Bass and Marreese Speights picking up minutes at the four-spot sans Griffin. Austin Rivers could also earn a few starts when the matchup presents an opportunity to go small.

Blake Griffin is set to undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right knee on Tuesday, and he's expected to miss the next 3-6 weeks of action.

Of all the surgeries to have, arthroscopic is the least invasive, so Griffin could realistically meet the earlier end of this initial timetable. While he's out, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will benefit most, while the power forward minutes will likely be divvied up between Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass and Marreese Speights. Griffin has way too much upside to cut, so owners will just need to hold on to the dead roster spot or sell-low if in a desperate situation. We'd advise against selling low.

Blake Griffin (right knee) will reportedly have arthroscopic surgery early this week, with an expected timetable of 3-6 weeks.

The right-knee surgery was dubbed a "clean up" procedure and it will reportedly cost him 3-6 weeks, according to Clippers beat writer Dan Woike. As long as he's out of commission, the Clippers are likely to turn to Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass and Marreese Speights for additional minutes. Griffin's owners should simply hold tight, since his relatively short timetable precludes a cut in standard leagues.

Blake Griffin scored a team-high 26 points on 10-of-21 shooting during Sunday's 117-110 loss to the Wizards, adding seven boards, seven assists, one steal and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Griffin surpassed Elton Brand for the No. 3 spot on the Clippers’ all-time scoring list in this one, and he’s now just 82 points away from overtaking Bob McAdoo for the No. 2 spot. He’s been a steady top-50 option on the season, and the quad injury that ruined him last year has been a complete non-issue this season.

Blake Griffin played 33 minutes against the Magic during a 113-108 win on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.

He was red hot in the first half with 16 points on 6-of-8 from the field, but made just 3-of-6 after the break. Griffin hasn't quite attacked the basket as much since his rest day with only seven makes at the rim. He's lit it up from midrange, though. As long as Griffin stays healthy, he should produce. Although, expect him to rest on some upcoming back-to-back sets against non-playoff contenders.

Blake Griffin (sore right knee) returned from a one-game absence in Monday's 121-120 win over the Blazers in style, scoring 26 points on 12-of-25 shooting.

Griffin's knee is fine. He logged a team-high 40 minutes which confirms that coach Doc Rivers simply rested him against the Pelicans on Saturday. He grabbed 12 rebounds with six assists, one block and four turnovers, hitting 2-of-3 shots from the line. He gets a matchup with the Magic on Wednesday.
