Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin had a nasty scare while being tangled up with Los Angeles Lakers’ guard Lonzo Ball and Clippers teammate Austin Rivers.

“I think it’s hyperextended,” Rivers said of Griffin’s kinjur, according to per Mark Whicker of The Los Angeles Daily News.

“I hope it’s hyperextended. I hope that’s all it is, because if it is, he might miss a game or two. I hope it’s not worse. That’s the last thing we need, missing that guy.”

According to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times, early indications are that Griffin has a sprained MCL which could result in Griffin being sidelined for some time.

Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell Discusses Altercation with Wolves’ Derrick Rose

When it comes to anyone messing with his teammates, Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell isn’t playing around, and he wasn’t going to stand for Minnesota Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose approaching Milos Teodosic after some chippy play during Monday night’s game.

“I’m the type of player who sticks up for his teammates,” Harroll said, according to ClutchPoints. “So honestly, when the altercation happened, when I saw D-Rose walking up on my teammate, that’s when it was time for me step in.

“I really don’t care what people feel about it,” Harrell added. “I don’t care who likes it and who doesn’t. I’m the type of player who plays for his teammates. I play for the guys that are on the court with me. And I feel like, at that point in time, Derrick Rose went after a person who really wasn’t even trying to cause that type of situation.”

Harell finished with  13 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and three steals in the victory over Minnesota.

Clippers’ Tobias Harris Explains Why He Turned Down Contract Extension

Published

on

Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris turned down a contract extension offer from the team over the summer, one that was a four-year, $80 million contract offer, willing to bet on himself in free agency next summer.

“For myself and my representation, we looked at it. We did really process it to make that decision,” Harris said, according to Jovan Buha of The Athletic. “At the end of the day, it is $80 million. But for me, it’s more of going out and earning what my value is. It has nothing to do with me figuring out what the Clippers are doing or things like that.”

“No, I love the whole organization. I love the team. I hope this relationship that we have is long-lasting. But it’s more of just on myself as a player, just pushing myself to see where I’m at at the end of the year. And we’ll go from there. That’s where it was. Both sides, we talked about it and both sides had really good dialogue on that. So it wasn’t nothing. We really were thankful that offer was there.”

Harris is likely seeking a max contract offer from the Clippers, or a more lucrative offer elsewhere next summer, and will have this upcoming season to make his case that he is worth every penny of such a lucrative offer.
