Would loss to Minny overshadow wins over Memphis and Chicago? No, but it would be another sign why Clips probably won't go far in playoffs.

Matt Barnes before the game on his hamstring: "No disrespect to the Timberwolves, but if this is the playoffs, I think I would play."

Halftime: Wolves 60, Clippers 58. Chris Paul had 19 points and 9 assists. The Clippers were up by 18 in the first half.

Halftime: Timberwolves 60, Clippers 58.

Blake Griffin has been working out in LA while the Clippers have been have been on the road. Hard for team to give official timeline now.

Ben Bolch

Kevin Martin (flu) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) out for Timberwolves against Clippers.

Arash Markazi

Matt Barnes is out tonight. He might sit out Wednesday too to give himself a week to recover. He said he will be back for sure Sunday v GSW.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes joked that had he kicked LeBron James he would have gone to jail and used his one phone call to call media.

Beto Duran

Doc said Blake Griffin is running "full tilt" and "shooting." He said there's a possibility he could return for Sunday's game against GSW.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers described Blake Griffin as going "full tilt."

Ben Bolch

Looks like Matt Barnes is out against Timberwolves.

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin has resumed basketball activities and it appears there's a chance he plays Sunday against Golden State.

Nikola Pekovic's ankle is bothering him again, so he may not play Monday versus Clippers. That removes one Bond villain from their path.

Ben Bolch

As it stands now, a pretty good chance Clippers play Portland, Houston or Dallas in first round. All good matchups for Clippers.
