Blake Griffin exits game early with back spasms
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin left Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets early with back spasms.
Along with DeAndre Jordan, Griffin hadn't missed a game all season, as one of the only two players on the Clippers roster to play and start in all 74 games. Griffin has been averaging 24.3 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game this season.
There's no indication yet on how long he will be out, but should tentatively be considered questionable for Monday's game against the Wolves.
He exited Saturday's game with 5:48 left in the first quarter, holding his lower back as he walked off the court. He left the game with seven points, one board and one block in six minutes.
UPDATE: Blake Griffin (lower back spasms) return is doubtful
