Coach Doc Rivers said that Blake Griffin is likely to play on Tuesday against the Sixers
The words attributed to Rivers were “most likely.” That’s a good sign. If he plays, he will have missed 18 games in total. Without Chris Paul, it is difficult to say how Griffin’s return affects the rest of the lineup. However, Griffin was a monster when Paul missed time in 2013-14. Griffin averaged 27 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.4 steals per game in the 19 games that Paul sat that season.
