Blake Griffin Out Up to Six Weeks
The Clippers just can’t catch a break. Well, they can, but not the good variety. #1 overall pick Blake Griffin is out up to six weeks after fracturing his patella. Griffin appeared ready to contribute right away so this setback is devastating.
Chris Kaman and DeAndre Jordan get a nice bump in their fantasy values. Eric Gordon and Baron Davis will likely shoulder more of the scoring load, which makes them more attractive fantasy options.
If you drafted Griffin, the season is not a lost cause for you. He’ll likely miss around 15-20 games or so. He’s young so he should be able to bounce back fairly quickly and not take too long to get into shape.
If I’m Jeff Van Gundy or the Suns Gorilla, I’m a little nervous as both Love and Griffin have been hurt.
