Clippers’ Blake Griffin Likely Returning Next Week



Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who has been out the past three weeks after having a staph infection removed from his right elbow, has been running “full-tilt” and could be back by the end of the week, coach Doc Rivers said Monday.

Rivers said he didn’t know when Griffin would be back. Asked if Sunday’s game against the Golden State Warriors was a possibility, which would be four weeks since Griffin was sidelined, Rivers said, “I guess it’s possible.”

A team source said Griffin had not begun shooting yet but would this week and cautioned that a return Sunday would be “wildly optimistic,” even though his conditioning is back to normal. A more likely target would be the following week.
