Griffin Out For Rest of Season

Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the postseason and Chris Paul will be out indefinitely. 
Griffin aggravated a left quadriceps injury in Game 4 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. An MRI revealed no further structural damage, and the team said he’ll be ready for the start of training camp.
Paul underwent surgery Tuesday morning in Los Angeles to repair a right hand fracture that he suffered in the third quarter of Monday night’s game. Team sources indicated the recovery time for Paul is four to six weeks. 
Griffin was limited in the fourth quarter Monday night due to the quad before he sat out the final 5:48 of the game, a 98-84 loss. Griffin averaged 15.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists in the first four playoff games. Paul averaged 23.8 points, 7.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds.
