by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7:02 pm ET) The plan was for Blake Griffin to practice Friday and possibly be ready for Sunday's game against Warriors. 

That plan is now in doubt. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, Griffin missed Friday's practice as he continues to recover from a staph infection in his right elbow that required surgery. Griffin was spotted shooting jumpers early in practice but with his left hand. 

"I don't know yet," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "We'll see. We have two days of practice, so we'll know more [then]."

The Clippers have been without Griffin for 11 games. They've on seven of those contests.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Bradley did not travel to New Orleans for Friday night's game. He's nursing a sprained left elbow that was sustained Wednesday against the Jazz. 

With Bradley out for Friday's game, the Celtics are going with Jae Crowder in the starting lineup. According to The Boston Globe, Stevens said he's going with Crowder over Isaiah Thomas because he doesn't want to disrupt Thomas' rhythm off the bench.
