The Los Angeles Clippers have a knack for underachieving, and this won’t help fix their reputation. Reportedly, star forward Blake Griffin fractured his right hand after punching a staffer multiple times while out in Toronto.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin returned home early from his team’s five-game road trip after he suffered a suspected fracture in his right hand in an undisclosed team-related incident, ESPN.com has learned.
Sources told ESPN.com that the hand injury — unrelated to the torn quadriceps muscle that has sidelined Griffin since Dec. 26 — is expected to keep him out “a matter of weeks, as opposed to days.”
Sources close to the situation said late Monday that the Clippers are still evaluating the severity of the new injury but are expected to provide an update Tuesday.
More info is rolling out, and it seems that Griffin got into a tiff with a Clippers staffer while out at dinner.
It seems that Griffin went outside, and proceeded to put hands on said staffer.
The struggle is real.
