Forward Blake Griffin and guard Milos Teodosic were expected to be back in the starting lineup for the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday at Sacramento after recovering from injuries.
Griffin sat out two games after sustaining a concussion Saturday. He was struck in the forehead by an accidental elbow from Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee.
He wound up on the floor with his right hand shaking. Griffin eventually got up and walked to the locker room.
“When you see Blake’s hand (tremble), you knew it was bad,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “I know it’s a concussion.”
Teodosic missed the past three games due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
Griffin, 28, entered the game against the Kings with averages of 22.8 points and 7.5 rebounds. Teodosic, a 30-year-old rookie, was averaging 8.4 points and 5.2 assists per game.
