Blake Griffin left the Los Angeles Clippers' Game 3 matchup with the Utah Jazz on Friday night with an apparent toe injury. That toe injury will keep him out of the remainder of the 2017 playoffs.
As reported by ESPN and other media outlets, the Clippers' 28-year old power forward suffered an injury to his big right toe and is now out of the playoffs.
