According to ESPN’s Marc Spears, Blake Griffin is expected to be sidelined for Game 4 with a toe injury while Austin Rivers should be back in action.
Griffin’s absence would be a crushing blow to LA, though it would serve to even the playing field as Utah deals with life after Gobert. Rivers’ return would be a huge boost to the second unit. Despite his warts, Rivers remains a fine ball handler, play maker and occasional offensive threat that can help prop up a thin Clipper bench. We’ll see when Griffin returns to the court.
