Griffin Bothered By Sprained Knee, Intends To Play Versus Spurs
Blake Griffin managed eight points, four rebounds and two blocked shots in Game 7 of the Clippers’ first-round series against Memphis despite a sprained left knee that limited his jumping ability.
"There just were movements I couldn't do and I wanted to do," Griffin said. "And I don't want to ever put my teammates in a situation where I feel like I'm hurting them, where physically I can't do what I need to do."
Griffin intends to play when the Clippers open their second round series against the Spurs on Tuesday.
"No, I'm not going to sit out," Griffin said. "It's a matter of rest."
