NBA Playoffs: Blake Griffin out for rest of playoffs with toe injury

The Clippers have lost their leading scorer to a toe injury for the rest of the playoffs.

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.

The Clippers won Game 3 over the Jazz Friday night 111-106 and now hold a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Griffin had 11 points and six rebounds before leaving with the injury.

Griffin joins Jazz center Rudy Gobert in missing significant time in this series. The Jazz, however, hope to have Gobert back soon.

Game 4 is Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
