NBA Playoffs 2012: MRI On Blake Griffin Shows No Structural Damage, Game-Time Decision Along With CP3

The Los Angeles Clippers had their dynamic duo of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul both suffer injuries in game five against the Memphis Grizzlies, though both are considered game time decisions on Friday in the crucial game six of their Western conference playoff battle.

According to NBC Sports' Kurt Helin, Blake Griffin had an MRI on his sprained knee, which luckily showed no structural damage. It is the same knee that caused him to still out of his rookie season after micro-fracture surgery, so that is good news for L.A. in all regards.

Chris Paul suffered a hip flexor/groin strain during the game on Wednesday, but will test it out pregame to see if he is in good enough shape to give it a go. I don't foresee either of them taking the night off if they are cleared to play.
