The nightmare season in LA for the Clippers continues. Just hours after it was announced Chris Paul will be out for the playoffs with a broken hand. All-star forward Blake Griffin was also placed on the injured list with a left quad injury. More from the Clippers.
“Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the postseason after aggravating the left quad injury that kept him out for half of the regular season.
Griffin, who missed 41 games this year with a partially torn left quad tendon, felt a tweak in the same quad while getting fouled in the third quarter Monday night by Mason Plumlee.
He went to the locker room with the sore quad before trying to return to the court, but that effort didn’t last long, as he watched the end of the game back on the bench. Griffin said he hoped the next 24 or 48 hours would have him turning a corner. That, however, won’t be the case.
An MRI on Tuesday morning revealed no further structural damage, and Griffin will be ready for the start of training camp next season, but his 2015-16 playoffs are done.”
