Don't hurry back, Blake ...

Blake Griffin has been out since Dec. 26 and won't be returning anytime soon, thanks to the Jan. 23 incident in which he broke his hand punching a Clippers staffer. After he heals from that, he'll serve a four-game suspension before returning to the court. Surprisingly, the Clippers have been markedly better without him.

Lakers coach Byron Scott on his relationship with rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft: "It's been fun coaching him. But he's so young. He still has a whole lot to learn about this league and about playing that position. The thing that I like about him is he's willing to learn. He's willing to accept criticism to try to get better at the things he needs to continue to work on. And I haven't been the easiest man on him in the world. But I always seem to go back to thinking -- after I've been so hard on him on certain occasions -- that he's 19 years old, and he's just a kid playing in a man's world. I know the potential is there. He's just got to keep working at it. I'm going to stay on him, because I think he has a chance to be a very good basketball player."
