There is not much to report on injured forward Blake Griffin, who was to miss his eighth consecutive game Sunday – against New Orleans – with a partially torn left quad tendon. Coach Doc Rivers said Griffin definitely won’t play Wednesday when the Clippers host Miami.

“He has yet to run, I mean, like really run,”  he said; Griffin has run on a treadmill. “I think he’s going to start doing that, hopefully, soon. Once he runs, how does he feel? Is there a setback? These things, they have their own little way of healing.”

Griffin had a stomach virus Saturday, Rivers said.
