REPORT: Blake Griffin Surgery Goes Well 0
The Clippers expect Blake Griffin to make a full recovery in about eight weeks and to be ready for the start of training camp in October.
“I think that he’ll be back healthy soon,” Billups said, “and he’ll be back to the same old incredible Blake Griffin.”
Griffin, who just signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension, suffered the knee injury Wednesday during a U.S. Olympic team practice in Las Vegas.
It’s the same knee Griffin injured during a 2009 exhibition game before his rookie year with the Clippers. But the current injury is unrelated to and less serious than the previous one, a stress fracture to the kneecap that required season-ending surgery (also by ElAttrache).
