“I talked to him, and he’s clearly disappointed,” said Blake Griffin. “There’s nothing you can do. You try to tell a guy like that, ‘It’s OK, we got you and it’s going to be OK,’ but he’s a competitor. He wants to play. It’s not easy dealing with injuries, especially at this time of the year.”
Broken hands have been a thing all season long for the LA Clippers and Chris Paul was the latest to join the list. Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin also sustained broken hands this season.
