Blake Griffin has been listed as a 50-50 possibility – a game-time decision – to play in Monday night’s game at Minnesota, according to a story on ESPN.com.
Griffin left Saturday’s game at Houston in the first quarter with back spasms and did not return.
“It has improved since Saturday, that’s for sure,” Griffin told ESPN.com. “I still wouldn’t say 100 percent. … I’ve been dealing with it off and on. Most of the time it’s manageable, but I felt like Saturday wasn’t really manageable. I got bumped, but it wasn’t a hard bump or anything. It was a bump. I feel like if it hadn’t happened there it would have happened the next time I was in the lane. I don’t really think it was the force.”
Griffin has not missed a game this season. He’s averaging 24 points and 9.6 rebounds.
