Blake Griffin out for remainder of playoffs; Chris Paul out ‘indefinitely’
The Los Angeles Clippers announced on Tuesday that Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the postseason after aggravating the injury to his left quad. They could also be without Chris Paul for that stretch.
Paul, who suffered a broken hand during the Clippers’ Game 4 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, will need surgery and has been ruled out indefinitely. You can see a video of the play where Paul was injured here.
Griffin was seen clutching his left knee on the bench Tuesday night, and it was clear he was in pain. Obviously the injury is serious enough where he won’t be able to go for the rest of the playoffs.
L.A.’s series with Portland is tied at two games a piece, but you have to wonder how far the Clippers can go without their two best players. The injuries could not have come at a worse time. That’s some horrible luck for Doc Rivers’ team.
