Blake Griffin Has Torn Meniscus in Left Knee Will Be Out 8 Weeks
Blake Griffin’s knees aren’t at Odenish levels, but he has had a few injuries that should be of concern. Especially now that the Clippers have committed $95 million to him.
There were fears that he might have torn his ACL, so it could have been a lot worse.
Clippers to be very careful how they bring him back, take their time and not rush him off the court. I hope Griffin doesn’t turn into a modern day Bernard King.
Blake Griffin has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his left knee and will have arthroscopic surgery probably early next week, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Griffin will not be playing for the U.S. Olympic team in London later this month, but he will be available for Clippers training camp that starts in October.
Griffin is expected to be out about eight weeks recovering from the injury and should be fine and ready to play when the season starts, the executives said.
