Blake Griffin suffered an apparent knee injury during the Team USA practice yesterday. And after being examined by doctors, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Griffin has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in left knee which will need arthroscopic surgery.
From all indications, the surgery will have Griffin ready for training camp in October, but he is out of the Olympics.
Blake Griffin has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his left knee and will have arthroscopic surgery probably early next week, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Griffin is expected to be out about eight weeks recovering from the injury and should be fine and ready to play when the season starts, the executives said.
This is the same knee that Griffin injured in the playoffs last season as well as the same knee he had season ending surgery on during his rookie season.
