Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin underwent a second surgery on his broken right hand this week, according to a report by ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne.

The surgery is reportedly not considered a setback, so Griffin’s initial recovery time of at least four to six weeks — though some have claimed it’ll be closer to at least two months — still stands, which is great news for the Clippers.

Griffin first had surgery on his hand last week after fracturing it during a Jan. 23 altercation with friend and team assistant equipment manager Matias Testi in Toronto. The NBA and the Clippers are still investigating the incident, and have yet to determine Griffin’s punishment.

Griffin has been out since Dec. 26 with a partially torn left quadriceps tendon and was nearing his return at the time of the altercation. 

The Clippers are 16-4 in his absence this season.
