After experiencing some discomfort during his recently-accelerated rehabilitation program, Clippers’ forward Blake Griffin was examined Tuesday afternoon by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.
As a result of that examination, it has been determined that the healing in his left patella area has not improved to the expected required level. Griffin will undergo a surgical procedure in the near future, with a recovery prognosis of four to six months. Team personnel will be made available to the media. Further details will be made available as events develop.
And I thought the Celtics’ recent bout with injuries was bad. The Clippers have been experiencing this for decades and it looks like the curse just keeps getting worse.
What do you think will happen to Griffin next season? A broken leg? Detached retina? Maybe even a sore left forefoot?
With the Clippers, no bad news is unexpected.
