The math said the Clippers were in control once they took a 2-0 lead on the Grizzlies in their first-round Western Conference playoff series. But math was powerless to keep Blake Griffin from landing on Lamar Odom's foot in practice and spraining his ankle. Now the Clippers find themselves down 3-2 and headed to Memphis, where the Grizzlies can close out the series Friday night. Will Griffin, who played 20 minutes in Tuesday's loss, return in Game 6? And will it be enough to help the Clippers force a Game 7 in L.A.?

Everybody Hurts

Griffin is listed as day-to-day with a high ankle sprain. But the Clippers don't have many days left unless they can win Game 6, with or without him.


How worried should Clippers fans be about Blake Griffin leaving Game 5 of their series with the Grizzlies with an ankle injury?
