To be perfectly honest, I’m surprised serious injury has never occurred during Olympic dealings. We’re not sure as to the extent of Blake Griffin’s knee injury, sustained at Team USA practice this afternoon, but it was bad enough to where he needs an MRI. The team will bring in Anthony Davis, who was originally thought to be unavailable because of an ankle injury.
Clippers All-Star forward Blake Grifin sustained a left knee injury during Wednesday night’s practice with the U.S. Olympic basketball team in Las Vegas and was scheduled to return to Los Angeles on Thursday for further evaluation.
Griffin will be examined by the same doctor who performed his season-ending left knee surgery during his rookie season in 2010.
