Clippers Publicly Condemn Blake Griffin

The Los Angeles Clippers released a statement Tuesday afternoon condemning the actions of star forward Blake Griffin, who suffered a spiral fracture in his right hand after punching an equipment staffer. Griffin was already sidelined with an injury, and is now expected to miss an additional 4-6 weeks recovering from the hand fracture. "His conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as team," the Clippers organization said. "We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken."
