The scuffle took place at a restaurant in Toronto over the weekend in front of other team and staff members. There is an investigation going on by the league and the player's association, in which other members of the Clippers' team and staff will be interviewed.
Griffin will miss four to six weeks with the injury and did apologize for his actions after being sent back to L.A to get his hand treated. He sent out a treat, calling the incident "a situation among friends" and claiming he regrets his actions and will look for a solution to get back on the floor.
Sources say the incident involved assistant equipment manager Matias Testi after a 112-94 loss to the Raptors. The two reportedly went back and forth with insults, before Griffin struck Testi, who then left the building. Both, who are good friends, were sent home after the incident.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers called the situation "frustrating and a distraction." Rivers says this kind of matter isn't good for anyone, especially for a team that has recently climbed back into the playoff race in the west.
The official injury to Griffin is being called a "a spiral fracture of the fourth metacarpal", which he had surgery to fix on Tuesday. Although, it seems as if even when he does heal up, there will still be many more questions that need to be answered.
