Doc Rivers: Blake Griffin Knee Injury ‘Didn’t Look Good’

by November 28, 2017

Austin Rivers fell into Blake Griffin‘s left knee during a loose-ball scramble Monday night, leaving the L.A. Clippers grim-faced despite their third win in a row.

The Clips listed Blake Griffin as day-to-day, and head coach Doc Rivers says the injury “didn’t look good, obviously.”

Lou Williams‘ season-high 42 points led the Clippers past the Lakers in a 120-115 victory.

Per the AP:

“Lonzo knocked someone into Blake and it was a trigger effect,” the elder Rivers said. “Blake said he was OK. Then he just couldn’t move. He’s hoping it was just a bang.”


Griffin added 26 points and 11 rebounds. The elder Rivers and Williams both thought Griffin got fouled on the play.


“The referees acknowledged he got hit,” Williams said. “But I guess there were some other things that went on during that play.”
