Blake Griffin Suffered MCL Sprain Against Lakers

Griffin hurts knee in Clippers win over Lakers

Rivers also converged on the play and fell into Griffin's left knee, twisting him to the floor.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, L.A. Clippers star forward Blake Griffin is expected to be out two months with a sprained left MCL after he suffered the injury Monday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Blake Griffin suffered his knee injury on this play Monday vs. the Lakers. Griffin initially remained in the game before quickly exiting.

A former No. 1 overall pick and five-time All-Star, Griffin is averaging 23.6 points and 7.9 rebounds this season for the Clippers (8-11).

Aldridge added that Griffin "will be out a while", but did not give a specific timeline.

Griffin left the locker room without speaking to reporters. With just Griffin on the court, the Clippers are getting beat by 5.9 points per 100 possessions.

The Clippers have been ravaged by injuries in recent weeks.

The Clippers trailed by as many as eight points midway through the final quarter, but they clamped down on defense and rallied for their third consecutive victory, a streak that has followed a nine-game losing streak.

Given we can expect the Clippers to play at a pace slightly better than.500 with Griffin, they'd have to be close to even by the time he returns. They are now without starters Milos Teodosic (foot) and Danilo Gallinari (hip), while guard Patrick Beverley is lost for the season after knee surgery.

He has sustained several serious injuries through the years, including season-ending toe surgery after Game 3 of the Clippers' first-round loss to Utah in the Western Conference playoffs last season. Prior to that, he missed most of the 2015-2016 National Basketball Association regular season.
