Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who pulled out 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.

 

The former OU star told the Los Angeles Times "It's less than a hairline, and my back is not fractured. 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."

 

Griffin withdrew from Team USA on July 24 to rest up for the NBA season. He was one of several high profile NBA players to pull out of Team USA camp this summer.

 

"My whole thing is I didn't want to go into [Clippers training] camp and put myself in a worse position," Griffin said.
