  • Clippers' Blake Griffin: Could be out two months
    By RotoWire Staff

    Griffin (knee) suffered no structural damage to his left knee with his sprained MCL, but the recovery process may take two months, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. In a huge blow to the Clippers, Griffin will be out until possibly late January. The team will have to do some digging to sort out a new rotation in the meantime, with the likes of Sam Dekker, Wesley Johnson and Montrezl Harrell probably seeing expanded roles. That said, the anticipated returns of both Milos Teodosic (foot) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) should help provide some offensive weapons, with both probably seeing a bump in usage in Griffin's absence.

  • Griffin suffered a sprained MCL in Monday's win over the Lakers and has been ruled out indefinitely, David Aldridge of Turner Sports reports. There hasn't been a strict timetable given for Griffin just yet, but it looks like the All-Star power forward has a lengthy absence ahead of him, as the Clippers continue to have brutal luck with injuries this season. In his absence, Los Angeles will likely begin experimenting with smaller lineups with both Sam Dekker and Wesley Johnson in the frontcourt, while Montrezl Harrell should see some extended minutes at power forward as well. Once Danilo Gallinari (glute) returns to the lineup, he'll likely now become the team's No. 1 option on offense.

  • Griffin (knee) will undergo tests on to determine the extent of his injury on Tuesday, with early fears being a sprained MCL, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Griffin injured his knee battling for a loose ball at the end of Monday's game, with teammate Austin Rivers appearing to land on his leg. If the fears are true and Griffin suffered a sprained MCL, he would be out an extended period of time. We'll find out more after he undergoes tests Tuesday.

  • Griffin departed Monday's game against the Lakers with an apparent knee injury, Mike Trudell of reports. Griffin was battling for a loose ball late in the fourth quarter, and teammate Austin Rivers appeared to land on his leg. While Griffin was in obvious discomfort, he initially stayed in the game before asking out and heading to the locker room. Considering the time remaining, Griffin is not expected to return to return to action and should be considered day-to-day until further notice. The Clippers on Tuesday and Wednesday before a date with the Jazz on Thursday.

  • Griffin scored 33 points (13-25 FG, 2-7 3PT, 5-5 FT) to go along with four rebounds, five assists, and one steal across 38 minutes in Saturday's 97-95 win against Sacramento. As the focal point of the Clippers' offense, Griffin has consistently delivered big numbers in the points column. The forward has scored at least 20 points in 13-of-18 games, surpassing the 30 point mark in two of those games. Averaging 23.4 points. Griffin is far and away the team's offensive leader despite shooting 42.5 percent. However, Saturday's field goal percentage (52.0 percent) was the first time in eleven games that Griffin shot above 50.0 percent. Griffin will look to further improve on his shooting when the Clippers take on the Lakers on Monday.
