Blake Griffin could return to the court much faster than originally anticipated.

The Los Angeles Clippers power forward, who has been out with a sprained MCL since the end of November, was expected to miss about two months. However, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that Griffin could be back before the end of December.

He participated in the team's shootaround Tuesday as the Clippers prepared to face the Sacramento Kings. They'll also go up against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday and Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. The forward is expected to return for one of those three games.
