Clippers in 'wait and see' mode after Blake Griffin injures left knee

Griffin, 28, fell down under the basket and clutched his left knee with a little more than three minutes left in the Clippers' 120-115 victory.

"It didn't look good", Rivers said. While the Clippers have survived injuries to Griffin in past seasons, they no longer have Chris Paul to buoy the team in his absence.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 29 points for the Lakers, who had not played in five days after losing at the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. Williams had a season-high 42 points, 14 in the decisive fourth quarter.

Hopefully Griffin will be back on the court soon, but for now this incident is yet another point on the downward trend of the Clippers season and Blake Griffin's career.

The Clippers trailed by as many as eight points midway through the final quarter, but rallied for their third consecutive victory, a streak that followed a nine-game losing streak.

The Los Angeles Clippers received some good news regarding Blake Griffin's status on Tuesday.

Griffin went back to the locker room shortly after the play.

After the game, he left without speaking to reporters but wasn't on crutches, according to multiple reports.

Williams shot 12-for-21 from the field, and 4-for-8 from 3-point range. "For the past three weeks I've been dreaming of this, I missed it".

Williams will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and we already have some idea of the value he can have at the deadline. Blake's 23.6 points per game, and 5.1 assists per game lead the team and his second-place 7.9 rebounds per game are invaluable as well. The Clippers have won 20 of the last 22 matchups.

One way or another, we'll know a lot more about the Clippers' direction by the trade deadline, including whether the playoffs are still a realistic possibility.
