Matt Barnes suffered a sprained left ankle in the fourth quarter, limped to the locker room and never returned. Griffin's injury seemed to affect his play on Friday night at San Antonio, but he still played Saturday night against the Houston Rockets. "It's pretty swollen and it's pretty sore," Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said. "You could tell a little bit last night [in San Antonio]. He's battling through it right now. He's got some fluid in there." Griffin has been wearing a black sleeve on his left leg. Griffin said Clippers head athletic trainer Jasen Powell has a timetable for when the injury....

Why was Griffin playing at all if he's injured? We were gonna lose the games anyway, might as well let him rest.

They just really didn't want to see Odom play. I say rest Blake and go small ball with Barnes at PF. Odom sucks too much on offense

@CP3Best We barley lost to the Spurs by 2 bruh and it was a tight game the whole way, and they all played there asses off, so I don't see why you're taking shots at the team like that. We're all upset but don't get too down on the team. The Houston game on the other hand.....

Blake is a black hole at the moment and playing him is not only useless but also putting our entire off-season in danger. I doubt we can hold on to the 3rd seed anyways, so a Memphis match-up is most probable and they don't look as dangerous as last season. If we are 100% I think we can beat them easily, but if we are banged up from the start it will be a repeat of last season!

I think you guys should shut down Blake and Matt for a couple games if they're hurt. It doesn't look like you guys will be able to secure the 3rd seed anyway. It's best to have them healthy for the playoffs.

He's hardly a black hole as he is still dishing some assists. But I'd rather have him 100% in the post season than playing through injury in the remaining games.

If Blake really has to sit a game or two,,I could see Hollins start

I think it is quite a possibility, I would also like to see Bledsoe starting with Chauncey out, even though I have no problem with Green. I know it's crazy to VDN, but that Bledsoe/Paul lineup needs to be experimented, it could be something quite positive in the playoffs and change things for the team. You can stagger their minutes to have one of them on at all times and then maybe give Wayns a few minutes each game, like half a quarter.

Just our luck. Just when I thought we were starting to get healthy too and we play the Pacers tomorrow too.... They will definitely be out for blood. Great just great.
