Blake Griffin Playing Through a Burst Burca Sac in Right Elbow

by November 06, 2012

According to the Clippers’ high-flying star, the pain in his right elbow is quite severe. Reports the OC Register: “Clippers forward Blake Griffin is playing through a burst bursa sac in his right elbow, Griffin said after Monday’s loss to Cleveland. Griffin said the problem happens nearly every year, though ‘never this bad.’ […] Bursa sacs are small pouches filled with fluid that cushion and lubricate joints. While the injury is painful, Griffin is expected to play through it. Before Monday’s game with Cleveland, Griffin showed discomfort on his face as he warmed up, missing his first few shots well short.”
