Blake Griffin Injury: Updates on Clippers Star's Knee, Likely Return Date
The Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner initially reported that Griffin's left knee didn't look to have any structural damage after he had an MRI on Wednesday:
Clippers said Blake Griffin got MRI Wednesday night after scrimmage, showed no structual damage on bruised left knee. No timetable 4 return— Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) October 10, 2013
UPDATE: Saturday, Oct. 12
From Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler:
Blake Griffin (L knee bruise) will play for Clippers tonite in Utah. 7pm on Prime Ticket. Pre @ 6:30.— Ralph Lawler (@Ohmeomy) October 13, 2013
Doc Rivers briefly talked about the injury via Arash Markazi of ESPN.com: "It's nothing bad. But he tweaked it."
The Clippers were having an intrasquad scrimmage when the star power forward went down on Wednesday.
Griffin's injury arguably couldn't come at a better time. With the preseason just getting underway, Los Angeles won't have to rush him back. Instead, it can take its time and wait for Griffin's knee to fully heal. Since there wasn't any structural damage, it's unlikely that the knee injury is serious.
The Clippers have seven more preseason games before their first regular-season game, which is against the Los Angeles Lakers on October 29.
