Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers are currently up on the Utah Jazz in their first round playoff series 2-1, but that could change quickly. Griffin suffered a toe injury in Friday’s 111-106 win over the Jazz and it looks like it is pretty serious as the team announced on Saturday.
Griffin and point guard Chris Paul were injured in last season’s playoffs, which resulted in another first round series loss for the franchise. Griffin was averaging 20.3 points, six rebounds and 2.3 assists in the first three games of the postseason. Now the team will have to adjust yet again for his absence and that means guys like Mareese Speights and Alan Anderson might have to step into a bigger role.
