With Griffin's injury, the Clippers will be without 4 of their 5 opening night starters. After dealing away point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets, an 8-11 start has been awful for a franchise that's won 51 or more games in each of the last five seasons.
Kushner Worried Mueller Will 'Get' Trump
Robert Mueller's team is apparently also looking into a number of meetings that Kushner tried to broker with foreign leaders. Then-candidate Trump disparaged the resolution one day prior to the United Nations vote and said it should be vetoed.
He played for about a minute longer, but then was taken out by Clippers coach Doc Rivers with 3 minutes, 53 seconds left in the game.
Griffin is expected to return this season, which is good news after seeing how bad that injury looked.
The Clippers have been riddled with injuries this season, including season-ending microfracture knee surgery to starting point guard Patrick Beverley. They're now barely more than $100,000 below the tax, meaning adding a 15th player for the remainder of the season would take the Clippers over the tax line.
Given we can expect the Clippers to play at a pace slightly better than.500 with Griffin, they'd have to be close to even by the time he returns.
Rivers appeared to have fallen on Griffin, whose knee got twisted as he landed on his back. They are now without starters Milos Teodosic (foot) and Danilo Gallinari (hip), while guard Patrick Beverley is lost for the season after knee surgery. We'll find out more after he undergoes tests Tuesday. Last season, Griffin played in just 61 games after an injury and issue plagued 2015-2016 season limited him to just 35 games. But Jordan, selected for the All-NBA team the past three seasons, would be an upgrade in the middle for most teams, so there should be interest.
