Blake Griffin scored a game-high 26 points against the Blazers on Thursday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

It's his second game with at least three attempts from deep and Blake is now 3-of-7 from out there this preseason. While Griffin did make just six treys in all of last season, he made a very respectable 41.5 percent on his shots from 20-24 feet. Even with a little more upside and more ball-handling responsibility because his minutes will be staggered from Chris Paul, Griffin is still a risky fantasy pick.

Blake Griffin is focusing on the 2016-17 season, rather than his upcoming free agency.

Griffin is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, but he's not letting that distract him from the task at hand. "Honestly, nothing I even really think about," Griffin said. "Haven't had a conversation with anybody. That includes friends, family, agents, coaches, teammates. It's not a conversation I have. I got a lot of basketball left to play this year. I got a full season, postseason. So that's on the back on my mind. I'll deal with that one when the appropriate time comes, but right now isn't the time." Griffin is an always an injury risk, but the 27-year-old is still worth a look in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.

Coach Doc Rivers is expected to stagger the minutes of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to keep one of them on the court at all times.

This became a popular plan following the Blazers doing this with C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard. Last season, the Clippers had a net rating of +13.4 in their 865 minutes with CP3 and Blake. Without both it was -5.1, without CP3 and with Blake it was -10.0, and without Blake and with CP3 it was -9.9, so it makes sense to stagger them. This can be viewed as a positive for both players from a fantasy perspective, too. That said, Griffin's injury risk is a bigger concern.

Blake Griffin said he'll look to take more three-pointers this season.

Griffin said he doesn't want to fall in love with the shot, but will look to take more shots from downtown if the opportunity is there. Griffin is a career 27.1% shooter from beyond the arc, but an uptick in threes will help expand his already strong fantasy game. While the 27-year-old is a risky pick, he's still worth a look in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.
Oct 6 - 9:02 AM

Blake Griffin feasted against the Raptors on Wednesday with 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in just 26 minutes.

Griffin was his explosive self, which is the biggest takeaway, but his perimeter shooting is also worth notice. He said recently that he "want[s] to be someone who shoots [3-pointers] confidently," and it's something we might see more of this season. Even though he looks fully recovered from his quad injury, Griffin remains a high-risk, high-reward target.
Oct 6 - 1:12 AM

Blake Griffin scored six points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, shooting 3-of-7 from the field with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers.

The Clippers were blown out by 45 and he had five fouls, so Griffin only played 18 minutes. Griffin is healthy again and is hoping to show off his new 3-point shot this season, but he missed his only attempt of the night. Even with the promise of more triples, the injury risk will cause him to slide in a lot of drafts. He's in a contract year and entering his prime at 27 years old, so he could be a nice value if he can stay healthy.
Oct 5 - 1:29 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said he's expecting everyone to be available for Tuesday against the Warriors.

Blake Griffin has been declared 100 percent for over a week, so he'll be out there in the "Cool Story, Glenn" preseason battle. He's looking to get more confidence in his 3-point shooting, so that's something to watch.
Oct 3 - 4:01 PM

Blake Griffin has been working on his shooting from beyond the arc this summer and wants to be more confident from deep.

"I don’t necessarily think falling in love with the 3-point shot is a good idea, but shooting it confidently from there is great," Griffin said. While Griffin did only make six treys all of last season, he has shown he is capable. On his shots from 20-24 feet last season, Griffin made a very respectable 41.5 percent (34-of-82). Additionally, Chris Paul said the Clippers will tell Blake to "shoot it damn near every time he catches it." Even with a slightly higher upside, the injury risk will cause Blake to slide a bit this year, and justifiably so.
Sep 29 - 9:06 PM

Blake Griffin has fully recovered from the quad issue that sidelined him for a majority of the 2015-16 season.

"It just looks like a brand new tendon," Griffin said, after seeing the results with his doctor. "No tendinitis, no anything…The doctor was like, ‘This is probably as healthy as your tendon’s been since high school,’ just because of the nature of how much basketball we have to play." Doc Rivers said that Griffin "looked great" during his first full practice with the team at camp, and Griffin added that he's cleared all the mental hurdles of the recovery process. He's in a contract year and entering his prime at 27 years old, so Griffin could be in for a career-year with the Clippers.
Sep 28 - 12:59 PM

Blake Griffin (quad) and Chris Paul (hand) both said on Monday that they are 100 percent.

This means the Clippers will open training camp at full strength. Griffin spent most of the summer rehabbing, and while his recovery was abnormally long, hopefully the quad issue is in the rearview mirror. He's entering a contract year and the trade rumors have been buzzing, so his price in fantasy drafts has noticeably dropped. It will be interesting to see how he holds up during the preseason.
Sep 26 - 3:35 PM

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.

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.
Aug 31 - 9:52 PM

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.
