Clippers forward Blake Griffin and guard J.J. Redick will not travel with the team for its final regular-season game Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers. Clippers coach Doc Rivers already had planned on resting Redick, but the decision to give Griffin the night off was essentially taken out of his hands Tuesday night when Griffin picked up his 16th technical foul in the first half against the Denver Nuggets, drawing a league-mandated one-game suspension. "The worst case is he's suspended one game, I'm not going to bring him anyway," Rivers said. "They'll probably rescind that. I'd be surprised but you never know. I want Blake to stay home and get some rest. He's so banged up." Rivers said Chris Paul would make the trip but he's not sure how much he will play.
