Clippers’ Blake Griffin Out For Playoffs, Chris Paul Out Indefinitely
Monday was bad for the Los Angeles Clippers, after Chris Paul and Blake Griffin went down with injuries.
Now, we have an update. Griffin, who aggravated a left quadriceps injury, will miss the remainder of the postseason. CP3, who suffered a broken hand, will be out indefinitely, the team announced Tuesday (April 27).
Both injuries took place during Game 4 of the Clippers' first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night, which they lost.
An MRI has revealed that Blake's injury had no structural damage, and the team says he'll be ready for the start of training camp, reports ESPN.
Paul, however, underwent surgery Tuesday morning in Los Angeles to repair a right hand fracture. Sources say recovery time is four to six weeks, which would mean that CP3 could return... if the Clippers advance to the conference finals or NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
The Clippers-Trail Blazers series is currently tied 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
