Blake Griffin To Have Season-Ending Knee Surgery

I would say unbelievable but we are talking about the Clippers, so that’s not entirely accurate. From Clippers official website:

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.

Just before Christmas Griffin was cleared by doctors to begin rehab.

Sucks, I was really looking forward to seeing him play and help stir up a rivalry with the Lakers here in Los Angeles. (Okay, forgot about Dunleavy.)
