Clippers' Blake Griffin questionable for Game 6

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin told reporters -- including Brad Turner of The Los Angeles Times -- that his ailing ankle felt better yesterday. However, he was not willing to decide whether or not he'd play in Game 6 against the Memphis Grizzlies until today, as he doesn't want to put himself in a position where he hurts the Clippers.

Griffin exited Game 5 due to an ankle injury. It was later reported that he sustained the injury during practice when he landed on teammate Lamar Odom's foot.

While Griffin said his ankle felt better prior to Game 5, its condition clearly deteriorated as the game went on. Over 20 minutes, Griffin scored four points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing five assists.

There is nothing else structurally wrong with Griffin's foot, but it's clearly hampering him. If he's unable to suit up tonight, the clippers will start Ronny Turiaf or Odom along with DeAndre Jordan.
