Blake Griffin has sprained MCL, could be out two months
The 28-year-old primary player of the Los Angeles Clippers could be out for more than two months after the team confirmed that he sprained the MCL in his left knee.
Test results on Tuesday showed no structural damage to the knee, according to the Clippers. But the Clippers is approaching them cautiously as they have already been ravaged by injuries starting from their newly acquired point guard Patrick Beverly to the backup point guard Milos Teodosic and one of their primary scorer Danilo Gallinari.
Griffin has been averaging 23.6 points and 7.9 rebounds this season, his loss would mean Montrezl Harrel would need to pick up some of the load and DeAndre Jordan who had been in the center of some trade rumors had to also produce more.
Blake Griffin signed a five-year deal this year worth $173 million maximum contract.
