Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers will probably be without both Blake Griffin and Chris Paul for the remainder of the playoffs



If you thought the Stephen Curry injury was hard to overcome, the Clippers have the Warriors topped.

According to Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com, Los Angeles will be without forward Blake Griffin for the remainder of postseason while Chris Paul will be out for at least the next four weeks.

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.
