TMZ has the first photos of the hand Blake Griffin injured in an altercation with a Clippers equipment staffer. I am not a doctor, but his right hand — his shooting hand! — doesn’t look great.
Griffin is facing a suspension from the NBA, whose investigation into the incident is almost over. On Wednesday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver told USA TODAY:
“I’d say from the league’s standpoint, of course it’s the last thing that you want to see happen. And whether it’s in the NBA, or in any industry, you have one co-worker, in essence, punching another co-worker. That’s a terrible thing. Blake has acknowledged that. But at the same time, I know he recognizes that there are consequences of his actions.”
The Clippers are 15-4 in Griffin’s absence. The team says he’s expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
