Clippers activate Blake Griffin; return to game action could be April 3

Well, now we know.

Saturday, much of the talk surrounding the LA Clippers centered around the return of injured forward Blake Griffin to practice. At time it was unclear when the perennial all-star would see game time having missed 41 games prior and with a four-game suspension still looming. On Sunday, the Clippers announced Griffin had been activated and his suspension would begin with today’s game against the Nuggets.

With the team set for four games in the next five days, Griffin’s suspension will be up in time for him to take the court the following Sunday at home against the Wizards.

In his 30 games played this season, Griffin averaged 23.2 points, 8.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists. If Griffin does return against the Wizards on Apr. 3, he’ll have seven games to find his rhythm before the team heads into the 2016 NBA Playoffs.
