NBA Star Blake Griffin to Miss 6 Weeks After Injuring Hand Punching Clippers Staff Member

LA Clippers forward Blake Griffin will miss around four to six weeks after allegedly injuring his hand punching a member of the team’s staff.

According to ESPN, Griffin will miss over a month after suffering a suspected fracture in his right hand after hitting one of the men responsible for looking after the team’s equipment following a heated argument.

The report suggests that the Clippers’ hierarchy will conduct an investigation into the incident, after it was claimed Griffin hit the man whilst the team were in a restaurant during a recent trip to Toronto. The unnamed staff member is said to have then left the restaurant and went outside, when Griffin followed him and hit him again.

Both were sent home by the club’s coach Doc Rivers immediately following the fight.

To make the incident even more odd, the Griffin is said to be good friends with the man he hit, and the pair are even said to have holidayed together in the past.

They probably won’t be booking up any breaks any time soon.
