Blake Griffin expected to be out two months with sprained MCL

Clippers coach Doc Rivers initially blamed Lakers' guard Lonzo Ball for causing the injury, although video shows it was Rivers that ran into Griffin's left knee.

"That was just gutty", Rivers said about finishing off the victory without Griffin.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 29 points for the Lakers, who had not played in five days after losing at the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. Despite scoring 115 points, the Lakers lost to the Clippers.

Williams shot 12-for-21 from the field, and 4-of-8 from 3-point range, while scoring 15 points in the third quarter alone.

With Beverley already out for the season, can the Clippers realistically rally from their hole and reach the postseason?

The Clippers are sitting on a 7-11 record without a lot of postseason hopes, so they'll likely err on the extreme side of caution with their franchise cornerstone.

Griffin leads the Clippers in points (23.6) and assists (5.1) per game and was off to one of the best starts to his career. While the team has not announced a specific diagnosis for the star forward, David Aldridge of TNT reports Griffin sprained an MCL on Monday evening, adding that the Clippers are relieved Griffin didn't do more damage during the gruesome sequence.

"The referees acknowledged he got hit", Williams said. During Nance's 11-game absence, Kuzma was the Lakers' leading scorer with a 16.8-point average. "For the past three weeks I've been dreaming of this, I missed it".

There is still no official word from the LA Clippers at the time of writing, as they may be doing further tests to more accurately determine the length of time the All-Star forward will miss. Over the previous three seasons, he has played in 67, 35 and 61 games, respectively.
