Blake Griffin Will Miss Olympics With Torn Meniscus, According To Report

Blake Griffin's Olympic fate seemed to be finished after suffering a knee injury early Monday. Now that it's official, the LA Times reports that Griffin suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee.

Blake Griffin has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his left knee and will have arthroscopic surgery probably early next week, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. […]

Griffin is expected to be out about eight weeks recovering from the injury and should be fine and ready to play when the season starts, the executives said.

It is the same knee Griffin sprained in the first round of the NBA Playoffs against the Memphis Grizzlies. He fractured his left kneecap and missed the 2009-10 season, but the LA Times reports that the injuries are not related.
