Blake Griffin will spend the next three to four weeks resting a strain to his right shoulder, which he incurred in the third game of the Clippers’ five game Las Vegas Summer League schedule last week. Griffin, named the League’s Most Outstanding Player, went on to average 19.2 points and 10.8 rebounds.

Griffin will maintain his normal lower body training and conditioning regimen, and will be further evaluated regularly. He was examined and diagnosed Tuesday by Clippers’ team physician Dr. Steven Shimoyama. A second examination Wednesday by Los Angeles-based specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum confirmed the earlier diagnosis and suggested protocol.

As a precaution, Griffin will be held out of the USA Basketball National Team Mini-Camp to which he was invited and which starts Wednesday in Las Vegas.

there are rumors circulating that Griffin may be out 90 days. Not a good start for the young man's bball career.

I hope that he heals quick.

But I can't help but laugh at all of the Clippers bad luck.

I feel so bad for Blake.

When the Clippers got the #1 pick he probably went home and got wasted.
