Already out with a torn quad, Blake Griffin has suffered a setback/new injury according to Marc Stein and others on Twitter

ESPN sources tell @ramonashelburne and I that Blake Griffin has suffered suspected broken hand in undisclosed team-related incident

Could have something to do with shipping Josh Smith out so abruptly. That seemed odd considering Blake hadn't returned from injury yet and they remain short on PFs

January 26th, 2016 at 10:03am CST • By Chuck Myron
10:03am: Griffin was involved in an off-court incident with a Clippers staff member, a source told Dan Woike of the Orange County Register (Twitter link). Woike doesn’t say whether that caused the injury, though Stein and Shelburne wrote in their story that the fracture happened in an “undisclosed team-related incident.”

What an absolutely stupid thing to do on Blake's part. He has to realize how much he'd let his team down doing something like that. Even if he didn't break his hand, you would have to think there'd be some type of punishment.

Wasn't he close to coming back?

Blake Griffin (hand) has a broken hand and his initial timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks, according to sources of beat reporter Dan Woike.
This is an unfortunate setback for a guy that has been sidelined since Christmas with a torn quad, and Blake could certainly be facing some disciplinary actions from the league or the Clippers here. Chris Paul has been phenomenal with Blake on the sidelines, and through the month of January he ranks in the top-3 in standard leagues. Paul will continue to shoulder the load on offense sans Blake, while J.J. Redick and DeAndre Jordan will also see an uptick in value.

The Clippers confirmed that Blake Griffin suffered a spiral fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right shooting hand, and after undergoing a procedure on Tuesday morning to correct the issue his timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks.
"This conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as a team," read a statement from the Clippers referencing Blake getting into a physical altercation with a member of the Clippers staff. "We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken." Griffin will likely be facing a suspension here, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Chris Paul will be the primary beneficiary sans Blake.

What caused the fight means nothing... Basically its about not laying your hands on coworkers.. Playing the the NBA is not a right... Its a privilege... Blake will suffer not only the loss of injury time, but likely suspension as well... I am not vilifying Blake at all.

Lol still it was likely something stupid. I'm willing to bet Griffin could've walked away with a slight ego bruise. Which is better than a broken hand and a giant check.

LOL. Didn't know that one, I guess they'll get suspended but I dont buy for a second that the Clips cant get him cleared in time for it to not interfere with his recovery. Its more of a PC response than anything but yeah, had he not gotten injured, he would have had some extra time to heal his current injury. Thats the only bright spot here, Clips should have a fully charged BG for the post season run.

Agreed.


Also if LeBron did this you would never hear the end of it.

Has everyone seen the guy he hit? Blake is twice his size. Howcome he's tough enough to beat on someone half his size but yet plays so soft against players the same size?

Oh that's right. Because he's a coward and a bully.

Also if he broke his hand punching someone he either has no idea how to make a fist or has an incredibly limp wrist.

If somebody calls your mother a whore you instantly fight them? What are you, 11? 12? Get a hold of yourself.

The only thing I would accept is if he walked in on the guy raping his wife or if the dude had his baby in a headlock or came at him with a knife or some ****.

In a bare knuckles fight bones in the hand can break pretty easily, and that's not taking into account Blake's muscle mass (which is presumably greater than yours, e.g. he probably hits harder). It's relatively common to break your hand on the mandible (jawbone) which is a common target but extremely strong. The bones of the hand are small and fragile. Fighters don't just wear gloves and handwraps to protect their opponents.

Sorry but it's not likely to break your hand on someone's jaw at all. Possible sure but likely? Nah.

And I've known enough gypsys in my time to know that breaking your hand isn't likely in bare knuckle. Unless you punch someone in the head or are swinging wildly. Bruising or maybe staving sure.

Each to their own. Believe what you want.

Report: Blake Griffin punched Clippers equipment manager after routine teasing escalated


https://twitter.com/basketballtalk/status/692811164049215489


What was supposed to be a dinner among friends in Toronto’s entertainment district on Saturday took a horrific turn when Griffin repeatedly punched Testi, leaving his longtime buddy with a severely swollen face and Griffin with a broken right hand.

Griffin and Testi had engaged in some of their routine back-and-forth teasing when things became heated, with the confrontation starting inside the restaurant and continuing outside and involving multiple blows from Griffin, said a person with knowledge of the situation who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

Officers from the Toronto Police Service arrived at the restaurant but were satisfied with the explanation they received from Testi and Griffin after the friends explained what had happened and told the officers there was no need to escalate the situation, said the person with knowledge of the situation.

If it comes out that this other team official was drunk, punched Blake in the face first and called his mother a whore in front of his teammates, will your tune change?

Point being, again, none of you know anything about the situation that you are handing out pseudo fines/suspensions for.

Granted, I wouldn't bet against Blake just being a dick here. I still won't pretend to know what happened.

as Dalton from Roadhouse put it, "Is she?"

If somebody calls your mother a whore you instantly fight them? What are you, 11? 12? Get a hold of yourself.

The only thing I would accept is if he walked in on the guy raping his wife or if the dude had his baby in a headlock or came at him with a knife or some ****.

I'm betting he gets a suspension.

Lmao uh yes, if some drunk is coming at me with swinging fists while insulting my mother, there would be a retaliatory fist to his face in all likelihood. I feel sorry for your manhood if you act otherwise. Sometimes people just need to be dealt with.

As for the broken hand, a boxers fracture is much easier to incur than you must think. And yes, swinging at someones face if they were to duck their head into your fist is certainly one way it happens.

Again, I'm not giving Blake the benefit of the doubt here. It would shock me 0% if he was at fault and the douchebag here, but I also wasn't willing to simply call him out for something that I know nothing about. Knee-jerk reactions concerning something you have no knowledge of are for simpletons and sheeple.

I am willing to bet they were both drunk. Also, Testi is keeping his job w the Clippers. Seems like it was truly just 2 friends who let things get way too out of control, unfortunately.
When cops arrived both Testi and Griffin said everything was fine, cops left.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, Blake Griffin (hand) could miss two months of action.
His original timetable was established at 4-6 weeks, but even Doc Rivers suggested that the timetable wasn't realistic. This would mean that Griffin wouldn't return to the court until the end of March at the earliest, so his owners may be forced to evaluate other options if they don't have an IR spot. In the meantime, DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Redick and Chris Paul will all benefit.

Lmao. That sounds like the answer I would expect from a simpleton not someone like you. Alpha B.S

If someone is swinging at you sure, defend yourself.

But that's not what you said. You said if someone insulted your mother you would fight them. To me that just shows how insecure and scared you are, only children feel the need to lash out when someone insults their mother or calls them something nasty.

Get a grip. If you try and fight everyone who says something you find insulting you're going to end up in prison. Talking about manhood like fighting is what makes you a man. You sound like every kid I knew when I was 16.

Stop acting like a hormone crazed angsty teen and start acting like a man. Learn when to control yourself. You cant go fighting everyone who makes a yo momma joke. Have some self discipline. Come on.

...or go back to puffing out your chest and swinging your dick 'round. Thinking you're showing strength when really you're just showing weakness. Weak minded. Weak willed. A thin skinned troglodyte.

I think it's incredibly stupid of someone to speak so "matter of fact" when they don't even take the time to read someone's entire post. it makes for a pretty funny aftermath tho lol.

This is a weird story. When you look at all possible scenarios nothing adds up.

1. This guy owes Blake money? If this were the case he would probably be avoiding Blake and they wouldn't be out at dinner together.

2. Doinking the same girl? This too seems unlikely. These two are supposedly "good friends" what are the odds of this coming out at this dinner?

3. The guy goes overboard with some comment about Blake? If this is your boy you guys go back and fourth with little verbal jabs normally not getting to the point of face punching. They also claim to still be friends after the fact.

Now, a day or so after the incident the clippers come out and say this guy will not lose his job. Just like me a lot of you felt this dude would be fired. Now why would the clippers keep this guy on the staff? Also no one is being sued. Here's what does make sense to me.you keep this guy close so he keeps quiet about whatever is going on. Marcellus Wiley of ESPN la (a clippers fan here in la) seems to think that this guy keeps his job because he played a bigger role in what got him punched. That makes no sense. Now I need everyone to file this away for later reference...... Could this have been a lovers quarrel? To me it's the only thing that makes sense and it would explain why tessti kept his job. You give him some money,let him keep his job and make him sign a gag order. This is a strange situation and the way information has has come out just seems a little off...ijs

Owner Steve Ballmer said "there needs to be consequences" for Blake Griffin's incident last week.
"It's the right thing to do," Ballmer said. The league is also looking at a punishment for Blake, so he might get at least a game or two. He is out for this month and could make it back for next month. Wes Johnson has been the best pickup by far.

Any chance something else really happened and this is just a cover up to explain why his hand is broken? They could have planned it to cover up him injuring it in another way.

Kinda like the Monta moped incident where he said he was hooping with friends for it to come out later that he was on a moped (something that was a breach of contract).
