Remember way back on draft day, when there were so many people joking that Blake Griffin’s going to be in trouble because he was drafted by the cursed Clippers? Maybe there’s actually something to that curse.
The Clippers announced that Griffin will undergo season-ending surgery on the left patella tendon in his knee, the same injury that was originally only supposed to sideline him for six weeks back in October.
Griffin initially suffered the injury before training camp, then reaggravated it during the preseason. He was originally supposed to miss six weeks, but his recovery was then pushed back to late January because he was only cleared to increase his rehabilitation in late-December.
The saddest part is that the Clippers were beginning to show some promise, having won four games in a row before last night’s loss to Memphis. Now, the team’s playoff chances have been severely dampened.
