The Clippers are committed to signing Blake Griffin to a long-term contract this summer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Despite a rash of injuries in recent years that have derailed him in the postseason, Griffin is still just 28 years old and supremely skilled. The current core of Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan has yet to get over the hump; however, losing a player as talented as Griffin in his prime and having nothing to show for it would be devastating to the franchise. The safest course of action may be re-signing Blake and then trading him down the line if the results remain unsatisfactory. Apr 28 - 9:19 AM

Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the 2017 NBA Playoffs with an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe.

The Clippers simply can't catch a break, as this is yet another postseason in which they have to deal with a debilitating injury to one of their star players. Griffin injured the toe late in the first half on Friday. Marreese Speights started the second half in place of Blake and will continue to see an uptick in minutes going forward, but Speights may still come off the bench if Austin Rivers (hamstring) is healthy enough to return. Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will be asked to shoulder the offensive load going forward. CP3's usage rate will spike, just as it did in the second half of Game 3.

Blake Griffin (bruised right big toe) underwent an MRI and his status for Game 4 on Sunday is unknown.

Griffin injured his toe after making a layup over Rodney Hood with just under four minutes left in the second quarter. He limped back on defense and slammed his fist into a chair when he got back to the bench, before heading to the locker room. He was subsequently ruled out for the second half. Fortunately, the X-rays were negative, but Griffin may still miss time. We're still waiting to hear word on the result of the MRI. "We should have more news [Saturday]," coach Doc Rivers said. "So we don’t know [how he is doing] is the answer." Check back soon for an update.

Blake Griffin (bruised right big toe) will not return to Friday's game.

The good news is X-rays were negative, so hopefully it's only a day-to-day thing. Griffin himself also reportedly said the injury was worse than he thought, so this could be a multiple-game issue. Marreese Speight started the second half and will have to step up in a big way. Plus, DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul will have to bring their A game.

Blake Griffin (right toe) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday and will have X-rays.

He looked to have a tweak to his lower leg after a drive to the basket. A report from Jazz radio says Griffin looked to say it's "worse than I thought" as he went back to the locker room. We'll see if he starts the second half.
Apr 21 - 11:07 PM

Blake Griffin hit 11-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 24 points, five rebounds, two assists and a block in Tuesday's crucial Game 2 99-91 win over the Jazz to tie the series at 1-1.

Griffin's stat line wasn't exactly chock full of goodness, but he led his team in scoring, hit a 3-pointer and played pretty well on a night the Clippers desperately needed a win. Game 3 is in Utah on Friday and it doesn't sound like Defensive Player of the Year candidate Rudy Gobert is going to be likely for that one, which should mean more good things from Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
Apr 19 - 1:14 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes during a Game 1 loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

He was hot in the first half with 20 points, but didn't have any field goal makes in the fourth quarter. The Jazz actually went small against Griffin and had Joe Johnson defend him for most of the fourth quarter. Despite his size, Griffin has struggled at times against smaller defenders, but it's still not enough to draw a conclusion here. Based on the playing time in this game, you can bet Griffin will get some serious burn in this series.
Apr 16 - 1:14 AM

Blake Griffin carried the Clippers during Wednesday's 112-101 win vs. Dallas, making 11-of-14 shots to score a game-high 32 points.

Griffin went 2-of-4 from deep and 8-of-10 from the FT line, while contributing six assists, four rebounds, one steal and just one turnover. He's been the deciding factor in L.A.'s four-game win streak, and his hyper-efficient scoring has been an unexpected boost for plenty of late-season fantasy owners. In the past four games, Blake is a combined 45-of-64 from the field (70.3 percent).
Apr 6 - 1:36 AM

Blake Griffin said he won't discuss free agency until the season ends.

"I’ve loved my time here, absolutely," Griffin said. "But my main focus right now is the season. I said this before the season, I’m not doing the whole free agency talk. I’m not talking about any decision I can’t make right now. Like I said my main focus is getting this team right and moving forward and being right heading into the playoffs." Griffin and Chris Paul are both expected to opt out of the final year of their contracts to take advantage of the rising salary cap, but the Clippers success in the playoffs could determine the fate of both players. While the Clippers are the favorite to re-sign Griffin, it's worth noting that he has been heavily linked with the Thunder and Celtics.
Apr 2 - 9:41 AM

Blake Griffin dropped 36 points on 12-of-15 shooting in Saturday's 114-105 win over the Lakers.

He also reached 10,000 points for his career, becoming the first player in franchise history to reach that milestone in a Clippers jersey. He hit 8-of-9 free throws with eight rebounds, five assists and one steal, and he also set a career-high with four 3-pointers on seven attempts. The Clippers only play twice next week, but Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan are still worth starting as they battle for playoff seeding -- they are just 1.0 game behind the Jazz for the No. 4 seed.
Apr 1 - 7:35 PM

Blake Griffin hit 12-of-18 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 5-of-7 free throws for 31 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Thursday's win over the Suns.

Griffin just missed a triple-double with 26 points, 10 boards and nine assists on Wednesday, and he's clearly putting his team on his back down the stretch. The Clippers are tracking the Jazz and trying to hold off the Thunder in the West and currently hold the No. 5 seed. They could easily move up or down, depending on if they win or lose, so the hope is that they keep playing their studs.
Mar 31 - 12:37 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Clippers offense was on fire and Blake's bucket with 5:43 left in the third made the Clippers the fastest team to 100 points in a game this season -- Lawler's law worked again today. Griffin's numbers were trending down with only 17.7 points per game over his previous 10, which has knocked him down to just fifth-round value per game on the year. Hopefully, this big game gets him going again.
Mar 30 - 1:55 AM

Blake Griffin shot 6-of-11 from the field to score 17 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

Griffin did his damage in 32 minutes and the shooting was a welcome sight -- in his past three games he was a combined 17-of-48 from the field (35.4 percent). The Clippers struggled to find him down the stretch, however, as their offense sputtered and they gave up a double-digit lead, resulting in a crushing loss that leaves them a full game behind the No. 4 seed Jazz in the standings.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Blake Griffin scored 15 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer against the Jazz on Saturday.

It was a big game for the Clippers and Griffin said having the tiebreaker over the Jazz could be important. Griffin also talked about how the Clippers will use the last part of the season to get better as a team, so that's an encouraging sign about him not getting rest. He's not playing his best, but his owners just have to keep rolling him out there.
Mar 25 - 7:23 PM

Blake Griffin scored 21 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He was coming off a mega dud with only 12 points against the Lakers on Tuesday, and still this line could've been better with only a 9-of-23 shooting line in this loss. Griffin's March has been underwhelming with only 18.0 points per game in his previous outings this month, so Blake just hasn't been right. The good news for his fantasy owners is that he still has two more games to go.
