Blake Griffin was diagnosed with a concussion after taking a wicked, albeit inadvertent elbow to the head last week, and he’s still in the concussion protocol.
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Clippers forward told ESPN’s Marc J. Spears he does not expect to be cleared to play in Wednesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
Here’s the play that sent Griffin into the locker room last week.

It’s a shame, because Griffin had just come back from a knee injury that had kept him out of action for weeks. He was appearing in just his fifth game back last Saturday night when he was injured and had played in just 10 minutes of that game against the Warriors.
