Blake Griffin isn’t sure if he’ll play on Friday night and said that it’d be up to him, the coaches and the medical staff as to whether he could return tomorrow.
Griffin has missed 14 straight but was originally expected to miss eight weeks of action, so he’s been well ahead of schedule on this one. Even if he doesn’t return against the Lakers, expect him to be back by the end of next week at the latest barring a setback. Jamil Wilson has been starting in his absence while Montrezl Harrell and Sam Dekker have been getting extra playing time, though the good times for all three would pretty much evaporate once Griffin returns to full speed. Check back tomorrow for a final update on his condition.
