L.A. Clippers suspend Griffin
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Clippers have suspended star forward Blake Griffin for four games without pay for punching a team staff member in Toronto last month. The $859,442 Griffin will lose will be donated to charity.
A team spokesman said the suspension will begin when Griffin is healthy, cleared to play and active. He was expected to be out four to six weeks while his hand heals from the Jan. 23 incident.
Griffin has been sidelined since Dec. 26 with a partially torn left quadriceps tendon.
