OKLAHOMA CITY -- Los Angeles Clippers star, and former Oklahoma Christian School and Oklahoma Sooner standout, Blake Griffin has been forced to pull out of an all-star charity game in Oklahoma City this weekend due to a cut on his foot.

An ESPN.com report said the report said that the cut was not serious, but did require stitches and was severe enough to force the reigning Rookie of the Year to bow out of the game.

Despite the hit, the roster for the USFleetTracking Basketball Invitational still features some of the biggest names in professional basketball. Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Jeff Green have all confirmed to play in the game.

A source confirmed to Dean Blevins that former Kansas State star Michael Beasley will be participating in the game, as well as Kendrick Perkins. 

The game tips off at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Cox Convention Center.
