Here’s ESPN Los Angeles reporting the latest on Blake Griffin:

Blake Griffin back injury update

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who pulled out of Team USA practices to allow a small fracture in his back to heal, continues to work out and expects to be ready for next season.

“It’s less than a hairline, and my back is not fractured. Everything is still intact,” Griffin told the Los Angeles Times. “I can still come out here, and I can do my workouts, and I can do everything I used to do. I just shouldn’t be playing and practicing every day this early.”

Griffin left the Team USA training camp last month after doctors advised him to allow the injury to heal. He is working out in Los Angeles with teammate DeAndre Jordan and former Laker and Clipper Sasha Vujacic.
