Blake Griffin, who has been on the Clippers' injured list since last December with a partially torn left quad tendon and a broken hand, has been cleared by the Clippers' medical staff to return to basketball activities. Griffin can practice with the team, but he still must serve a team-imposed four-game suspension stemming from a January incident during which he punched Clippers assistant equipment manager and close friend Matias Testi in the face.

Griffin is eligible to play in his first game on April 3rd when the Clippers take on the Washington Wizards.

Through 30 games played this season, Griffin is averaging 23.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 5.0 assists.
