Clippers star Blake Griffin suffers awful knee injury

Milos Teodosic injury return update

The injury occurred when Clippers guard Austin Rivers dove after a loose ball and fell into Griffin's knee taking him to the ground.

According to David Aldridge of TNT, the LA Clippers' Blake Griffin suffered a sprained MCL last night during the game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Griffin immediately collapsed to the floor and held the injured leg, which forced him to exit the game with just under four minutes remaining.

Griffin has averaged 23.6 points and 7.9 rebounds a game this season.

CNN had a savage clapback to Donald Trump's tweet attack
Trump did not specify how the contest would be carried out or who or what would determine the victor of the trophy. CNN's communications team responded to Trump by tweeting, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S.to the world".

He played for about a minute longer, but then was taken out by Clippers coach Doc Rivers with 3 minutes, 53 seconds left in the game.

With Beverley already out for the season, can the Clippers realistically rally from their hole and reach the postseason? His counterpart in the backcourt, Patrick Beverley, was lost for the season last week after undergoing microfracture surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Without Griffin, the Clippers have little-to-no scoring.

Donald Trump and Time magazine dispute Person of the Year plans
The US President took to twitter to say that the magazine had told him the would "probably" be selected as Person of the Year . The magazine insists that it "does not comment" on the choice "until publication, which is December 6".

Since being drafted by the Clippers in 2009, Griffin has been injured numerous times in his National Basketball Association career. He has missed at least 15 games in each of the last three seasons and suffered a season-ending injury in each of the last two postseasons. While there were a few players on the Lakers that performed well offensively, it was hard to find many that played well defensively in this game. But Jordan, selected for the All-NBA team the past three seasons, would be an upgrade in the middle for most teams, so there should be interest.
