The Clippers say that forward Blake Griffin's ankle injury isn't serious.

Griffin tweaked his left ankle, but Los Angeles coach Vinny Del Negro expects him to play on Tuesday night. He sat out Sunday's exhibition game as a precaution.

"To be honest with you, I was kind of thinking about giving him the night off anyway," said Del Negro. "It made my decision much easier. He kind of turned his ankle a little bit yesterday [against the Jazz] in the game. He's fine.

"He did it at the beginning of the game and he played the whole game. He's actually a lot better right now. If it was regular season, he'd play. Just want to be smart and use the time to fix it."

Griffin, the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, missed the entire season after suffering a knee injury in the preseason.
