|Blake Griffin has a small fracture in his back |
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(7/29/14) Though it wasn't cited in his statement to the media, one of the reason's Blake Griffin will miss the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup relates to a small fracture in his back.
According to ESPN, the injury, which he sustained in the playoffs, isn't considered serious, but he and the Clippers would rather be safe than sorry. This makes sense considering Griffin injured his knee in 2012 during a Team USA practice prior to the Summer Olympics.
Griffin enjoyed a top-notch statistical season last year, averaging 24.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.

(7/28/14) Team USA will be without two of its star power forwards for the August FIBA World Cup, as Blake Griffin and Kevin Love both withdrew from participation.
According to the AP, Love wants to be cautious and not risk injury while seeking a trade from the Timberwolves.
Griffin said in a statement that he appreciated the invite but would decline the opportunity in order to focus his energy on improving the Clippers.

(5/4/14) Clippers forward Blake Griffin scored a team-high 24 points on 10 of 18 scoring as four Clippers scored at least 20 points in a 126-121 Game 7 win over the Warriors Saturday.
Griffin seemingly willed in an acrobatic basket with just under a minute remaining to cap off an excellent performance as the Clippers move along to face the Thunder in the Conference Semifinals. Griffin finished with six assists, five rebounds, three steals and three blocks in the win.
|Blake Griffin pours 35 points in Game 2 win over Warriors |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/22/14) Clippers forward Blake Griffin put together a dominant effort on Monday, scoring a game-high 35 points in his team's 138-98 victory over the Warriors in Game 2 of the opening round of the playoffs.
Griffin shot 13 of 17 from the floor, and 9 of 10 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with six rebounds, one assist and two steals while logging 30 minutes of game action. He has combined for 51 points, nine rebounds and four assists through his first two postseason games.
|Blake Griffin earns 16th tech, suspension |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/14) Clippers forward Blake Griffin did not travel with the team to Portland for Wednesday's season finale, after picking up his 16th technical foul of the season Tuesday. That technical triggers an automatic suspension, and with just one game left, there isn't a great chance the league will rescind the technical.
The technical was the lone blemish on an otherwise fantastic game for Griffin, as he scored a game-high 24 points on 9 of 17 shooting. He added five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in a 117-105 win over the Nuggets.
|Blake Griffin’s third season in the league saw him take some steps forward and backward, but the end result still made him one of the top forwards in the game. Griffin’s minutes were limited for the first time in his career, as he averaged 32.5 per game, leading to career low averages of 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. It wasn’t all bad news for Griffin, as he improved his free-throw shooting to a career-high 66.0 percent, while upping his assist average to 3.7 and his steals to 1.2 per game. If the Clippers allow him to play 35 minutes on a nightly basis like his first two seasons, Griffin only has improvement ahead of him. And even if they opt to use him in a similar role, he remains worthy of selecting in the second round of most Fantasy leagues on Draft Day anyways.
