Blake Griffin officially has been ruled out of participating in USA Basketball training camp this summer, the Clippers announced on Friday via official release. This also means he won’t be playing in the Rio Olympics.
"Griffin underwent a bone marrow procedure on his left quad tendon on April 27 and has already begun the rehabilitation process with the expectation that he will be ready for the start of the 2016-17 NBA season," the team said in a statement.
Griffin missed 41 games this season with a quad injury that he originally suffered on Dec. 25, 2015. He returned for five regular season contests before aggravating the injury in Game 4 of L.A.’s loss to the Blazers in the first round of the playoffs.
