Blake Griffin will be unable to participate in Kevin Durant’s big exhibition game in OKC this month because of a minor cut he suffered on his right foot. Reports the AP: “Griffin’s agent, Sam Goldfeder, said Wednesday that Griffin was hurt while swimming in the ocean but that it’s a minor injury and he should be back on the court soon. Organizers of the US Fleet Tracking Basketball Invitational announced several additions to the Sunday night game expected to include All-Stars Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Amar’e Stoudemire and Russell Westbrook. Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins and James Harden, Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford and Damien Wilkins, Minnesota’s Michael Beasley and Houston’s Jonny Flynn have committed to play.”
