Los Angeles Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin has pulled out of a charity basketball game in Oklahoma City this weekend because of a cut on his right foot.

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.
