If you thought the Stephen Curry injury was hard to overcome, the Clippers have the Warriors topped.
Griffin will miss the rest of the postseason. CP will be out at least 4-6 weeks after surgery this morning

Griffin, reportedly aggravated a quad injury Monday night against the Trail Blazers while Paul broke his hand and underwent surgery Tuesday. The Clippers guard will be reevaluated in four to six weeks meaning at the very earliest he could return towards the end of May. Likewise the Clippers are in a dogfight right now with Portland and it still seems like stretch that CP3 is even cleared once four weeks comes around.
With Griffin and Paul both out this may be the definition of a deathblow in the playoffs. Currently LA and Portland are tied 2-2 in their best of seven series however it seems very unlikely at this point this is something the Clippers can overcome.
