L.A. Clippers Release A Statement Regarding Blake Griffin

The L.A. Clippers have released a statement condemning Blake Griffin‘s actions after he reportedly punched the team’s assistant equipment manager in the face during a dispute at a restaurant on Saturday (Jan 23).

The joint statement from Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Doc Rivers read:

L.A. Clippers forward Blake Griffin suffered a spiral fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right hand throwing a punch on Jan. 23 in Toronto.

This conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as a team. We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken.

Griffin received X-rays on Jan. 25th in Los Angeles that revealed the injury and he underwent a procedure on his hand Tuesday morning. The procedure was performed by Dr. Steve Shin. Recovery time from the injury is approximately four to six weeks.

Blake better keep his paws on the ball.
