The Clippers are nearing a decision on J.J. Redick’s future this season. The team will determine in the upcoming weeks whether Redick is healthy enough to rejoin the team. If he’s not, the club will likely shut Redick down for the rest of the season in an attempt to have him ready for training camp next year. Redick, who hasn’t played since Feb. 3 because of a bulging disc in his back, has recently ramped up a shooting program, though Doc Rivers said the team doesn’t know when and if he’ll be able to return.

Golden State Warriors forward Jermaine O'Neal confronted forward Blake Griffin in the hallway outside the Los Angeles Clippers' locker room at Staples Center after L.A.'s 111-98 win Wednesday night. The two had a heated conversation that was quickly broken up by a Clippers official who led Griffin to the adjacent news conference room. ESPN.com

O'Neal, 35, had dressed and was waiting outside the Clippers' locker room to talk to Griffin. Griffin, who was walking to the news conference room to take questions from reporters, could be heard telling O'Neal to "leave that s--- on the court" before the two were separated and briefly shook hands.

Me: Who has really worn you out on it this season? TB: Chris Paul and Tony Parker, I would say, in the pick and roll specifically. I've played against, pretty much, all the guards, and there are some real tough guards in this league. But I think those two, in the pick and roll. Because, for one, they get the ball so low. Like, once they come off the screen, it's a 5- , 6-foot jumper for them. And if the big comes up, it's a lob to Blake [Griffin] or whoever it may be. NBA.com

Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, who returned Saturday after a three-game absence, said he may have returned too soon and will miss at least Monday's game against the Phoenix Suns as he recovers from a strained left calf. Crawford played only 10 minutes in the first half of Saturday's 109-108 win over the Atlanta Hawks but sat on the bench the entire second half as his left calf was heavily taped. He missed both of his shot attempts and finished with three points and one assist. "I just have to get it stronger because I don't want the same pain to continue to bother me going into the playoffs," Crawford said. "I didn't re-injure it but I could tell it has to be stronger for sure to feel confident pushing off and doing certain things." ESPN.com

0ne0f0ne's unique designs, which are priced at upwards of $20,000, feature architectural materials that are then molded through a layered process that involves mill or laser-cut machines, surfacing, applied acids for color and tone, and then blending them together to tell a story. Currently, 0ne0f0ne is working on art pieces for DeAndre Jordan and Dorell Wright, with a vision from each. The company's NBA first was a four-month project for Blake Griffin, which he posted on his Instagram account and is now on a wall in his L.A. pad. Crafted with mainly walnut and copper—representing Griffin's hair color—0ne0f0ne constructed a piece portraying the L.A. skyline and coast, the city's major highways and intersections in downtown, a perspective of the Staples Center, his rookie year short chart with pegs for all of his dunks, and a representation of the state of Oklahoma, where he is from. Bleacher Report

"It tells the story of Blake's actual profession, which is what he wanted," said Jared Brunk, one of 0ne0f0ne's main team members. "He wanted it to resemble who he is, where he's from, what he does and kind of his path along the way, which landed him in Los Angeles. A lot of the players want to represent where they're from and they want to kind of tell their life story, which I think is really cool because then it means something to them, and it's personal and it's a good piece for discussion." 0ne0f0ne also manufactures custom furniture and leather items, including wallets, and many players—Griffin, Wade, Jordan, Wright, Ariza, Chris Paul, Matt Barnes and Antawn Jamison—have asked for signature pieces. Some want personal logos, like Wade with his Way of Wade logo; others ask for a non-personal patterns, like Jordan showcasing his favorite superhero, Batman. Bleacher Report

There still is no timetable for his return, and Clippers Coach Doc Rivers was asked Tuesday night if he feared that Redick could be out for the rest of the season. "I don't know," Rivers said before the game against the Suns. "I haven't had that fear yet. I don't want that fear, maybe would be a better way of putting it. But I don't know. I just keep getting updates. "I'm sure there is some thought of that. He's been out for so long. But we're just hoping for the best." Los Angeles Times
