Blake Griffin to Finally Suit Up

by October 09, 2009

Blake has been cleared by the doctors to play, and he’ll make his debut tonight against Portland: “It felt good, man,’ Griffin said. ‘Especially just the last three days, I’ve been able to go out there and run up and down but not do any five-on-five or anything like that. It was great.’ His teammates and the coaching staff noticed his increasing agitation at having to observe, having to stop him from doing too much on the court … The rust will take time to lift. Dunleavy thought that Griffin would play 15 to 24 minutes against Portland.”
