Blake Griffin will be out for several weeks after breaking his hand while punching a Clippers equipment staffer multiple times.  The Los Angeles Clippers forward took to his Twitter account to send out an apology.

“A situation among friends escalated and I regret the way I handled myself toward someone I care about,” Griffin tweeted out. “I want to apologize to the Clippers organization, my teammates and the fans for creating a distraction. I am working with the team on a resolution and getting back in the game as soon as possible.”

The staffer was identified as Mathias Testi, whom Griffin punched several times, resulting in his broken hand, plus a swollen face but no broken bones for Testi.  The Clippers say they are currently investigating the incident with the help of the NBA and will render any punishment necessary.  A suspension is definitely coming Griffin’s way.
