The 28-year-old has insisted that he wants to feature in the All-Star game on February 16, and coach Doc Rivers believes that he is gradually getting there.
"I still think it's All-Star break. I don't think that changed. The fact that he can run and do the conditioning is great, but other than that, it still has to heal," he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The Clippers have performed well in his absence, going 10-3 as Blake Griffin has improved his level of performance averaging 26.4 points in his last 10 games.
