Austin Rivers (hamstring) remains out for Game 4 on Sunday. The Clippers could've used him now that Blake Griffin (toe) is out for the playoffs. With Rivers out, the Clippers will use more small-ball lineups with Luc Mbah a Moute, Marreese Speights and Paul Pierce soaking up minutes at the four. We should see more Brandon Bass and three-guard lineups, as well.

Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the 2017 NBA Playoffs with an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe. The Clippers simply can't catch a break, as this is yet another postseason in which they have to deal with a debilitating injury to one of their star players. Griffin injured the toe late in the first half on Friday. Marreese Speights started the second half in place of Blake and will continue to see an uptick in minutes going forward, but Speights may still come off the bench if Austin Rivers (hamstring) is healthy enough to return. Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will be asked to shoulder the offensive load going forward. CP3's usage rate will spike, just as it did in the second half of Game 3.

Coach Doc Rivers said Friday that he doesn't think Austin Rivers (hamstring) will be able to play Sunday vs. Utah. Rivers has been sidelined since initially injuring his hamstring back on March 29th. "I don't think so," Doc said when asked if Austin could be ready in time for Sunday's Game 4. "I don't know. I think he probably thinks that for sure. He's feeling better. He's working out. But I just don't see that. I think that's awfully quick." We should have a formal update regarding Rivers status either Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning after shootaround.

Blake Griffin (bruised right big toe) underwent an MRI and his status for Game 4 on Sunday is unknown. Griffin injured his toe after making a layup over Rodney Hood with just under four minutes left in the second quarter. He limped back on defense and slammed his fist into a chair when he got back to the bench, before heading to the locker room. He was subsequently ruled out for the second half. Fortunately, the X-rays were negative, but Griffin may still miss time. We're still waiting to hear word on the result of the MRI. "We should have more news [Saturday]," coach Doc Rivers said. "So we don’t know [how he is doing] is the answer." Check back soon for an update.
