Griffin out at least eight weeks following surgery
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair the medial meniscus tear of his left knee which he suffered during Team USA's practice in Las Vegas on Wednesday, July 11th. The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic.
Griffin experienced discomfort following Wednesday's practice in Las Vegas. He underwent a magnetic resonance imaging examination on Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles which revealed the injury. MRI data was then analyzed by Clippers' Team Physician, Dr. Steven Shimoyama, and Dr. ElAttrache.
Griffin is expected to be ready for the opening of training camp in the fall.
