Found May 03, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Blake Griffin still is limping with his sprained right ankle and it will be a game-time decision whether the Clippers forward plays Game 6 against the Grizzlies. Griffin walked off the court carrying a bag of ice once Friday's shoot-around opened up. He later returned and sat on the opposite side of the court away from reporters. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro says Griffin will warm up to see how effective the forward can be after spraining his ankle Monday. Griffin didn't play the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's 103-93 win by Memphis, and the Grizzlies lead the series 3-2. Chris Paul had tape wrapped round his bruised left thumb, and the Clippers guard says he will be better by tipoff. His treatment? Praying over his thumb.
