The task the Clippers face in trying to deal with a tough Memphis Grizzlies team has become even more daunting.
There is Blake Griffin’s sprained right ankle that limited the All-Star forward to about 20 minutes in the Clippers’ Game 5 loss Tuesday in the Western Conference playoffs. His X-rays were negative and an MRI showed no structural damage Wednesday.
There is also the bruised left thumb Chris Paul suffered late in Game 5. But the Clippers said Paul, who tied his playoff career high with 35 points in that game, will play Friday.
“Injuries are a part of pro sports and sports in general,” Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said.
