As if a fractured hand wasn’t enough, Blake Griffin will receive further punishment for punching L.A. Clippers equipment manager, Mathias Testi, in Toronto over the weekend. The Clipper released a statement lambasting Griffin’s actions.
“His conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as a team,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers.
With the help of the NBA, the team is “conducting a full investigation” and once it’s over, the “appropriate action will be taken.”
Testi suffered bruises to the face, Griffin will be out for an extra six weeks because of his broken hand.
