The Clippers coach says there’s no reason to get nervous about the prized rookie’s injury: “Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said he doesn’t expect Blake Griffin’s shoulder injury to have a lingering effect on the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft… ‘The good news was they never mentioned surgery or any kind of a deal,’ Dunleavy said Thursday. ‘That was the first great news. I’m disappointed to hear anything which puts him on the shelf because of his great work ethic. He had improved so much in the short period of time he was with us prior to going into summer league. But I don’t think it’ll be a major setback for him at all.'”
