Teams have inquired about Griffin, but the Clippers still believe that they can win this season and they aren't interested in making a move. There were reports on Friday that the Clippers had discussions with Denver and Philly, but the talks obviously never made it out of the rumor stage. Expect Griffin to remain with the Clippers.

Blake Griffin (hand) underwent a second procedure this week on his broken right hand, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

According to Shelburne, "the procedure was a part of the original surgery last week, so sources said the 4-6 week timeframe for his return remains unchanged." This has been a very odd situation for Blake and he's going to receive some additional punishment once he's back. Wes Johnson has been the best pickup and could hold nice value this month. Additionally, enjoy the Blake trade rumors.

The 76ers had discussions with the Clippers about Blake Griffin, according to Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio.

OK. First and foremost, a discussion about a trade doesn't seem like much. Secondly, the 76ers dealing for Griffin would be one of the most shocking developments of all time. For now, it's safe to assume this won't happen.
Feb 5 - 3:10 PM

The Clippers reportedly discussed a Blake Griffin trade with the Nuggets according to Mitch Lawrence of Sirius XM Radio.

It's not clear what pieces were involved in the reported talks, but it would likely take a massive offer from the Nuggets to get the ball rolling. Nothing is imminent by any means, so take this report with a grain of salt until we hear something more concrete.
Feb 5 - 2:09 PM

Owner Steve Ballmer said "there needs to be consequences" for Blake Griffin's incident last week.

"It's the right thing to do," Ballmer said. The league is also looking at a punishment for Blake, so he might get at least a game or two. He is out for this month and could make it back for next month. Wes Johnson has been the best pickup by far.
Feb 4 - 7:12 PM

Blake Griffin (hand) is still waiting to hear from the league about his punishment from the league.

The Clippers are hoping to hear from the league about Griffin's discipline soon, but a decision may not be imminent, according to sources. Griffin is expected to miss up to two months with a fractured right hand and will likely miss more time due to a suspension when he returns, so fantasy owners may not get him back until mid-to-late March. Short of having a a free IR spot, stashing Griffin could be a detrimental move for fantasy owners.

The NBA's investigation of Blake Griffin (hand) is still ongoing.

Griffin is expected to miss up to two months of action because of his hand, but he could face some discipline from either the NBA or the Clippers. "He feels awful about it, and he's let everyone know that," Coach Doc Rivers said. "That's all you can do. You have to forgive people at some point. I believe that. We built Richard Nixon a library. I mean, my goodness, you forgive people." Unless you have an IR spot, stashing Griffin at this point in the season will be very difficult.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, Blake Griffin (hand) could miss two months of action.

His original timetable was established at 4-6 weeks, but even Doc Rivers suggested that the timetable wasn't realistic. This would mean that Griffin wouldn't return to the court until the end of March at the earliest, so his owners may be forced to evaluate other options if they don't have an IR spot. In the meantime, DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Redick and Chris Paul will all benefit.

Blake Griffin took to Twitter to apologize to the Clippers' organization for the physical altercation that happen between him and a Clipper staffer, and resulted in a fractured hand for Blake.

"A situation among friends escalated and I regret the way I handled myself towards someone I care about," Griffin said in the statement. "I want to apologize to the Clippers organization, my teammates and the fans for creating this distraction." Griffin is set to spend at least the next 4-6 weeks on the sidelines, but Doc Rivers indicated he feels that timetable is a bit optimistic, so owners without an IR-spot will need to consider cutting Blake at this point.
Jan 27 - 10:56 AM

Doc Rivers stated on Tuesday that he believes Blake Griffin's current 4-6 week timetable for his fractured right shooting hand is "unrealistic."

"I always say, four to six weeks with a broken hand is unrealistic, I’ll tell you that," said Rivers. This is a tough injury in fantasy hoops, and depending on where you're sitting in the standings, owners without an IR-spot may need to consider cutting Blake at this point. Chris Paul has been a monster with Griffin on the sidelines, and there's no reason to believe that trend won't continue. DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick will also benefit statistically in Blake's absence.
Jan 26 - 7:06 PM

The Clippers confirmed that Blake Griffin suffered a spiral fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right shooting hand, and after undergoing a procedure on Tuesday morning to correct the issue his timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks.

"This conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as a team," read a statement from the Clippers referencing Blake getting into a physical altercation with a member of the Clippers staff. "We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken." Griffin will likely be facing a suspension here, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Chris Paul will be the primary beneficiary sans Blake.

Blake Griffin (fractured right hand) has a broken hand and his initial timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks, according to sources of beat reporter Dan Woike.

This is an unfortunate setback for a guy that has been sidelined since Christmas with a torn quad, and Blake could certainly be facing some disciplinary actions from the league or the Clippers here, as that tends to be the result when players get into physical altercations. Chris Paul has been phenomenal with Blake on the sidelines, and through the month of January he ranks in the top-3 in standard leagues. Paul will continue to shoulder the load on offense sans Blake, while J.J. Redick and DeAndre Jordan will also see an uptick in value.
Jan 26 - 2:31 PM

ESPN is reporting that Blake Griffin (broken hand) hurt his hand punching a member of the team's equipment staff during an altercation that started in a Toronto restaurant.

There are likely more shoes to drop here, but this doesn't sound very good for Griffin. Outside of an expected weeks-long absence, Griffin could be facing disciplinary measures from the Clippers and/or league. We'll be on the lookout for more updates on this situation, so stay tuned.
Jan 26 - 11:14 AM

Blake Griffin (broken hand) will likely be out for several weeks after suffering a suspected fracture in his right hand.

While the team is still evaluating Griffin's injury that was suffered in an undisclosed team-related incident (whatever that means), sources said Griffin's timetable will be "a matter of weeks, as opposed to days." The Clippers are expected to provide an update on Tuesday, but fantasy owners should be prepared to be without Griffin for at least another few weeks. Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, and DeAndre Jordan will continue to benefit the most while Griffin is out.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Blake Griffin may have suffered a broken hand in an undisclosed team-related incident.

Griffin has already been sidelined since Christmas with a quad injury, but if this report is accurate he could be out for several more weeks. Obviously, his owners shouldn't make any roster decisions until we get a firm update from the team. For what it's worth, a broken hand usually sidelines a player for around 4-6 weeks in most cases. Expect Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and DeAndre Jordan to benefit the most if Griffin misses extended time.
