Blake Griffin

Los Angeles Clippers

Doc wants to use Blake Griffin at C a lot

Rivers said the Clippers haven't gone with that look too much during the preseason, and they worked on that group at practice on Wednesday. He also said he likes how the Clippers can go small against certain teams, and they didn't really have that luxury last year. Whatever the case, Griffin is set for a monster year as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Blake Griffin says his toe is 100 percent

    "I haven’t had any problems," Griffin said. "I haven’t sat out any practices. I haven’t had any restrictions. I didn’t really anticipate that. At the beginning of the season, I met with probably four of the top foot surgeons in the United States and I never anticipated sitting out training camp." Griffin's going to have a larger role in the offense this season and looked really good in the preseason with 17.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 triples in just 23.5 minutes per game. Fantasy owners who took him in the third round should be feeling confident.

  • Blake Griffin scores 18 in well-rounded line

    He's about as close to 100 percent as he can be, which is a welcome sight after there were rumors he wasn't going to be ready for camp during the summer. Griffin is handling the ball more than ever and he's scoring in all types of situations. His per-game stats are likely going to be outstanding, but of course there's the injury risk on BG. He's still an option in the third round.

  • Blake Griffin scores 17 points with 3 steals

    Griffin also went 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, and he could be in for a monster season as one of the primary creators on offense for the Clippers. His health is somewhat of a concern, which will cause him to drop on draft day, but he's fully capable of producing top-20 value so he'll be one of the more alluring risk-reward, early-round targets.

  • Blake Griffin logs 18 minutes vs. Raptors

    Blake opened the game with a pair of 3-pointers, but he missed his next three attempts. An improved perimeter game was a big storyline for Blake last year, too, but he finished with a modest 0.6 threes on 33.6 percent from deep. It's something we'll watch closely this preseason.

  • Clips plan to use Blake Griffin in many ways

    In addition to facilitating the offense, Doc also hinted he'd occasionally play Griffin at center. "There will be times when Blake is the tallest guy on the floor," coach Rivers said. "We want him to be an aggressive player, an attack player." With Chris Paul no longer in Los Angeles, the Clippers will run their offense through Griffin, who should see a spike in usage rate and has a chance to put up monster numbers this season.

  • Blake Griffin expects to be ready for camp

    Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.

  • Griffin plans to agree on $173M deal w/ LAC?

    And we're off. The Clippers adding that fifth year was likely the last piece of the puzzle, so Griffin now gets his monster payday at age 28. Things will obviously be very different for Griffin because his prime years have been Chris Paul, but now he'll have to learn with off-ball guys. His upside is massive for fantasy, but his toe injury could keep him out to start the season. He's still an early-round target in all formats.

  • Report: Thunder plan to chase Blake Griffin

    It's nice to have dreams, right? With OKC paying approximately $90M combined to Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams, it's hard to see what the Thunder has to offer that could entice the Clippers in a possible sign-and-trade deal. A homecoming story always tugs at the heart strings, but we're not considering this scenario likely to come to fruition, especially when we've heard next to nothing from Griffin's camp about a desire to head home.
