Blake Griffin hurt his left knee in a Team USA scrimmage Wednesday and is returning to Los Angeles to be examined by team doctors.
Griffin twisted the knee in a scrimmage. The severity of the injury is unclear. The Clippers said he will have an MRI and be examined by doctors Thursday and then visit a specialist on Sunday.
Griffin injured the same knee in Game 5 of the Clippers’ first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.
USA Basketball officials asked New Orleans Hornets rookie forward Anthony Davis, one of Team USA’s final cuts last week, to report to training camp.
