OU's Griffin won't play tonight vs. KU

Oklahoma's Blake Griffin will miss tonight’s game against Kansas, the school announced.

Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel visited with the school’s medical staff and was told Griffin is still recovering from a concussion sustained in Saturday’s game at Texas.

Griffin is averaging 22.0 points and a nation’s best 13.8 rebounds while shooting a Big 12-best .632 from the field. He also leads the country with 22 double-doubles.

The 6-10, 251-pounder sophomore played just 11 minutes Saturday at Texas.

This makes it two straight years Griffin will have missed all or most of a Kansas game. Last January, Griffin played only five minutes against the Jayhawks before suffering a knee injury.
