The L.A. Clippers announced today the following injury updates:
Forward Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs after aggravating the injury to his left quad tendon last night in Game 4. Griffin underwent an MRI this morning that revealed no further structural damage, and the five-time NBA All-Star will be ready for the start of 2016-17 training camp.
Griffin originally injured the quad on December 25th in a game against the Lakers and missed 41 games this season due to the injury.
In four playoff games, Griffin averaged 15.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists. In the regular season he averaged 21.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 35 games (all starts) for the Clippers.
Guard Chris Paul underwent surgery this morning in Los Angeles to repair a right hand fracture suffered in the third quarter of last night’s game against Portland. Dr. Steve Shin performed the operation and Paul will be out indefinitely.
In four playoff games, Paul averaged 23.8 points, 7.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals. The All-Star point guard averaged 19.5 points 10.0 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 74 regular season games (all starts) for the Clippers.
