Monday night was about as rough a night as Doc Rivers could have imagined — his Clippers lost to the Blazers, tying the series at 2-2, and that wasn’t the worst part of the night. Chris Paul suffered a broken hand that almost certainly means he is done for the season.
But that wasn’t the only significant injury, the Clippers could be without Blake Griffin in Game 5 as well Doc Rivers said.
Remember it was the quad that originally kept Griffin out injured last December — while he was out he punched a team employee and broke his hand, which added months to his time off — and it was that quad that in part delayed his return from that broken hand. It’s not going away.
