Idk if this has been posted up yet but
"
After experiencing some discomfort during his recently-accelerated rehabilitation program, Clippers’ forward Blake Griffin was examined Tuesday afternoon by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.

As a result of that examination, it has been determined that the healing in his left patella area has not improved to the expected required level. Griffin will undergo a surgical procedure in the near future, with a recovery prognosis of four to six months. Team personnel will be made available to the media. Further details will be made available as events develop.

Previously on December 23rd, after undergoing a CT Scan and MRI Griffin had been cleared to increase his rehabilitation workload.

Griffin, the first overall selection in the 2009 NBA Draft, suffered a non-displaced stress fracture of his left patella during the Clippers’ last preseason game vs. the New Orleans Hornets on Friday, October 23rd. "

wow i was just about 2 post this. Really sucks and unfortunate, a few days ago they said he was near a return and now his seasons over. I was looking foward to seeing him play, and just like Oden, we're gonna have to wait until next year. Damn the Clippers are cursed. Just say your sorry to those Indians already!!

This sucks! I was looking forward to see him play. Clippers haven't been too bad without him and I think he would have helped them a lot.

Wow I was seriously hoping to see Blake in real NBA action!
Sad to hear that he's gone for the season :(
I hope he recovers well and is ready for next season.

Clipper-itis? Hopefully he can come back strong, but who knows.

01-13-2010, 04:49 PM
He's way to athletic to turn into an Oden type of guy.

He'll be back strong next year and we'll see who gets the ROY, him or John Wallnuts?

Burkey3472
01-13-2010, 04:51 PM
Hopefully he gets a good frame of mind and keeps working hard to get back on the court for next season.

Me too, I don't really watch college ball. I wanted to see if he was going to be worth the hype from last year. I guess I have to wait until next season.

I never thought the guy would be anything anyways so far he has proven me right, he hasn't even stepped foot on the court. Although I thought this I do feel bad for the guy I would never wish for someone to be injured or even to bad, even if it was to show that I was right (again right so far). Too bad for the clipps, I guess camby might not be traded if they go for a playoff push now.

Clips are cursed...

every forum i always said "we will be lucky if we see Blake play this season knowing our luck he will never even play 1 game with the Clippers"
i guess its getting more n more likely this is true...
my pessimism about "i doubt he even plays this year"
is also becoming more and more just...

It's almost too funny to be true. Not laughing at Blake, I feel for the guy, but at the luck that the Clips have. So awful.

01-13-2010, 05:55 PM
I'm not counting Blake out because I love his game and he has a great personality. Always seems optimistic. Hopefully he'll come back next year like a force.

Clippers are a cursed team. Griffin was screwed when the Clippers won the Lottery.

Sucks for the Clipps. I still think they rally and make the playoffs w/o him though. They've been playing pretty good as of late and its not like they were used to playing with him anyway. At this point him coming back probably would've hurt more than helped if he wasn't 100%.

It's official the Clippers are cursed...

Blake Griffin going up against John Wall for ROY!

ElMarroAfamado
01-13-2010, 06:10 PM
im amazed its obvious the clippers run of bad luck is nothing short of a curse...why not change it up a little? maybe change their misfortunes?
whether it be a jersey change logo change SOMETHING...why cant the people upstairs do this?
i mean anything is worth a shot no?
im truly amazed....ever since Blake got injured ive been telling my friends id be surprised if he EVER even plays in a clippers uniform in the regular season.....its beggining to look more and more like if my pessimism is becoming true....

Wow, that sucks.

Is he injury prone? Hope this doesn't turn into a Greg Oden situation.

Shady66
01-13-2010, 07:26 PM
Man i hate it when these young players get injured. Hopefully next season hell be good to go.

During this time off he can work on his jumper, and come back even better next year

Giantwarrior
01-13-2010, 07:36 PM
you dont have to worry about griffin to being another oden. he has more skills more of a polished player. he just needs to get healthy.

Oden is Injury prone and has 2 left feet.

01-13-2010, 09:43 PM
honestly i think this kid was jinxed. sooooooooo many people talked and hyped this kid up soo much before he was even drafted claiming him to be the clear cut number 1 pick by far.... they jinxed him

poor clipper fans. i really feel for you guys. it seemed you finally had some hope with baron davis, kaman, griffen, camby, and eric gordon.. I really thought they were gonna be a decent team this year. this really sucks man.
