Blake GriffinLast season, Blake Griffin had to get his elbow drained, it was an issue that bothered him into the postseason.

This season, less than 20 games into it, he has had to have the same thing, it happened Sunday after the Clippers beat the Bulls, reports Broderick Turner at the Los Angeles Times.

“It’s still a little big,” Griffin said Tuesday. “But they put some anti-inflammatory fluid in there. It should go down in the next couple of days.”

Griffin said he was told that it wouldn’t be a good idea to have surgery on the bursa sac right now. “If you do, there’s an increased chance of arthritis,” Griffin said.

But a bad elbow could slow him some. Just something to watch as the season moves on and we head into games that start to matter more.
