洛杉磯報導 –

Head coach Doc Rivers said Blake Griffin’s working more and looks better, but there’s still no return date for the injured forward as the end of the regular season draws closer.

Griffin played in 30 games this season before injuring his quad Dec. 25 against the Lakers. He’s missed the last 39 games with quad and hand injuries, though it’s the former injury still keeping him out.

Rivers said he remains confident Griffin will be back before the playoffs.

“I can’t say that with 100 percent certainty, but I do feel like he’ll be back,” Rivers said. “I’m just not sure when.”

Rivers said Griffin’s hand injury is fine now, and he wishes Griffin could play to be able to test out his hand and have confidence in it when he does return to the court.

For now, getting Griffin back on the court in the first place is the primary concern. At the moment, Rivers said there’s no concern Griffin will be out the rest of the season.

“Obviously, I guess there’s a chance of that, but I don’t think that’s going to happen,” Rivers said. “I think he’ll be back, hopefully sooner than later.”

Jamal Crawford said after the loss in New Orleans he could only go off the last time he saw Griffin in the gym a week ago, which he said looked good. Crawford said it would obviously be nice to get Griffin back, but he doesn’t want to rush the forward.

The Clippers had done well adjusting to Griffin’s injury until recently, losing their last two games and four of their last five.

“Obviously, getting everybody ready to go, knowing how we’re going to play and what we’re going to do is always easier,” Crawford said. “But obviously you can’t rush him back. Whenever his body tells him he’s ready, he’s ready.”

洛杉磯快艇隊總教練 Doc Rivers表示:Blake Griffin目前傷勢復原許多並且已在進行多項復健,但目前仍沒有確切的回歸日期。

Blake Griffin本季僅出賽30場,在12/25對上洛杉磯湖人隊的比賽中傷到左股肌腱、之後又加上了手部骨折的傷勢,在後面的39場比賽無法上場並且持續缺陣中。

Doc Rivers對Griffin的復原狀況有信心,並表示雖然他無法保證Griffin能復原到百分之百,但預計應該能在季後賽開打前回到球場上。

隊友Jamal Crawford也在對上紐奧良鵜鶘隊的賽後訪問說道”上週我才在體育館裡看到Griffin正在練習,他的狀況很不錯。我們顯然很需要Griffin回到場上,但對於傷勢是急不得的。”


Jeff Green復原

In more positive news for the Clippers, forward Jeff Green has been cleared after suffering a head laceration in the loss in Memphis.

Only 22 hours separated the tip-off in Memphis and New Orleans, and because of that, it wasn’t enough time for Green to go through the full concussion protocol.

“He’s good,” Rivers said Tuesday. “He’s cleared. I don’t know what they were looking for, to be honest.”

Green, who needed eight stitches for the injury, said he didn’t have any symptoms from the injury, but NBA rules forced him to sit 24 hours after taking a hit to the head.
