Blake Griffin Says He’s Near ‘100 Percent’

BG’s health is “pretty much back at 100 percent” after left knee surgery on July 16. Griffin told the L.A. Times on Friday that he’s working out again should be good to go for the ’12-13 season: “‘I came back after surgery and started rehabbing and getting back into it. I’ve been shooting and lifting [weights] and all that for a while now,’ Griffin told The Times in telephone interview Friday. ‘So, I’m pretty much back at 100%, been back at 100% for a little bit. So I’m good.’ The Clippers start training camp Oct. 1, which Griffin says is more than enough time for him to train and improve his health and his game. He was injured July 11 while training with Team USA in Las Vegas, ending his chance to represent his country at the Olympics. Griffin had surgery July 16 to repair torn cartilage in his left knee and it has healed to the point where he is working out.”
