Coach Mike Dunleavy said it appears as if Griffin probably won't be able to return until after Jan. 1 from the stress fracture in his left kneecap, slightly later than the team had originally hoped.
The power forward is scheduled to undergo X-rays in about 10 days. If doctors are satisfied with the results, Griffin could begin graduated weight-bearing exercises on a special machine.
"The final determination, the way I understand it, is a CT scan, which will show how the bone mends," Dunleavy said. "When that looks like it's really good, that's when he's cleared to do basketball-like activities" that could take up to two weeks before Griffin plays in a game.
"A lot of it depends on him and how he feels once he gets on the court and what he looks like," Dunleavy said.
I am just itching to see this guy on the court. He was playing great in the pre season. I think a 3 man rotation of Kaman, Griffin and Camby could be a very nice force in the West. But he just needs to sit until healthy and not rush back from injury.
Article also talks about Eric Gordon. Injury is not as bad as before, but he still doesn't know when he will return. Apparently he has injured this hamstring multiple times. Will we ever see all the stars healthy bc if they are they can make a real run in the west. They have played decent as of late. Al thornton looks solid
