Former Sooner Blake Griffin Out for Rest of NBA Playoffs
Former Oklahoma star Blake Griffin will miss the rest of the NBA Playoffs for the Los Angeles Clippers after tweaking a quad injury on Monday night, April 25, in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
Griffin missed more than half the regular season with a left quadriceps injury.
Griffin’s injury was part of a nightmarish evening for the Clippers, who also lost Chris Paul for the rest of the playoffs due to a broken hand.
The injury could also affect Griffin’s chances of making the team for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil this August.
Griffin missed a chance at the 2012 Olympics due to a left knee injury.
