Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers’ star power forward, did not return to play the second half in last Friday’s first round playoff game against the Utah Jazz. The 28 year-old reportedly suffered an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe. It is a big loss for the Clippers, who now trail the Jazz 3-2 in their best of seven series. Griffin, who will not return to action this post season, was evaluated Tuesday by a foot and ankle specialist. Accounts say that he will seek several other opinions prior to undergoing surgery.
