  • Blake Griffin

Heading into last night's matchup, the Los Angeles Lakers found themselves in a prime position as they were half a game away from the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

LA Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin sprained the MCL in his left knee and could miss two months, the team announced Tuesday.

Griffin left in the middle of the fourth quarter in Monday's game after teammate Austin Rivers collided with him in the paint while going for a loose ball.

Sam Allardyce poised to take over at Everton after talks progress
David Unsworth - the club's Under-23s manager - has failed to impress while taking temporary charge following Koeman's departure. When confidence is low, it takes a bit of time to build it back up.

Through 9 games this season, Nance is averaging 10.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.7 steals over 23.9 minutes per game this season.

The only positive for the organization is that they avoided the worst-case scenario of losing their star player for the entire year.

Point guard Patrick Beverley was recently ruled out for the rest of the campaign after undergoing knee surgery and Milos Teodosic and Danilo Gallinari are also out for extended periods. After dealing away point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets, an 8-11 start has been awful for a franchise that's won 51 or more games in each of the last five seasons.

The Clippers have not had good luck with injuries this season.

Griffin, a five-time All-Star, signed a five-year, $173 million maximum contract extension in July to remain with the Clippers. The Clips are not expected to contend to the extent their previous teams did during the Griffin/CP3 era.
