Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin suffered a hand injury over the weekend after getting into an altercation with a member of the team’s equipment staff outside a Toronto restaurant, according to a report.

Griffin, who has been out since Dec. 26 with a torn quadriceps muscle, will likely be sidelined for weeks with a suspected fracture in his right hand. He was expected to return from his original injury during the Clippers’ current five-game road trip that ends Wednesday in Atlanta.
