Still facing suspension, Blake Griffin returns to practice for Clippers
Blake Griffin practiced for the first time since injuring his quad and hand.
Griffin has missed 41 games this season and hasn't played since December 25. He was first sidelined by a quad injury and then fractured his hand in an off-court incident involving the Clippers' equipment manager. While his hand healed up, Griffin was still dealing with issues relating to his quad which prevented him from returning to action. But on Saturday, Griffin practiced with the Clippers which could mean that he is nearing a return.
The Clippers will have to first activate Griffin and once they do that, he will have to serve a four-game suspension for punching the Clippers' equipment manager. If the Clippers place Griffin on the active list on Sunday, he will be able to play in seven games before the playoffs.
Without Griffin, the Clippers have gone 27-14 and are currently fourth in the West. Griffin averaged 23.2 points and 8.7 rebounds before his injury.
