The Los Angeles Clippers will reportedly be without their star power forward Blake Griffin until some point in January.
Griffin is set to undergo minor surgery on his right knee, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. The surgery will sideline the five-time All-Star for multiple weeks.
Early this week, Griffin will go under the knife, according to Charania. The procedure is seen as a "clean up."
As the Clippers sit four games behind the Warriors in the Pacific Division with a 20-8 record, Griffin is off to a stellar start. In 25 games played, Griffin is averaging 21.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game.
Back in 2008, Griffin also underwent surgery as a freshman at the University of Oklahoma. He has averaged 21.4 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game through his seven-year NBA career.
