No Blake Griffin This Season
That, friends, is the one of the only highlights you’ll have of Los Angeles Clippers rookie Blake Griffin doing work in his Clippers gear. What started out as a left broken knee cap that has sidelined Griffin since early in the preseason has turned into a problem that will require surgery and leave Griffin and his never-ending reservoir of potential sidelined for the rest of the season.
The team said, in a statement: “It has been determined that the healing in his left patella area has not improved to the expected required level.”
Recovery is expected to take between four and six months, but considering Griffin’s workout ability, don’t be surprised if he’s completely ready for action the next time the NBA’s summer league fun rolls around.
