Blake Griffin Injured

RealGM reports

Los Angeles Clippers’ rookie forward Blake Griffin may miss up to six weeks with a stress fracture of his left patella suffered during the Clippers’ last preseason game vs. the New Orleans Hornets on Friday, October 23rd.

Do the Clippers fold while Griffin are out? Or do keep their new-found energy + excitement and handle business without him?

I think the Clips will play better than last season but will be a poor squad (27-33 win type squad) while without Griffin. I think the loss offensively, and the overall loss of talent, will hurt them pretty badly.

If the Clippers handle the loss better than that, I’ll be impressed.

In related news, Marcus Camby is back from injury and has been practicing for the past few days. He is expected to play either in the opener or the Clips’ second game of the season.
