Saw it on ESPN's bottom line and read it here.
Clippers forward Blake Griffin is expected to be sidelined between three to four weeks because of a strained right shoulder he suffered during last week's Las Vegas Summer League, the team announced in a statement today.

Two examinations on Tuesday prompted team doctors to advise that Griffin abstain from competition, starting with the USA Basketball National Team Mini-Camp that begins today. In the statement, the Clippers said Griffin will maintain the same level of lower body training and conditioning.

Griffin was named the most outstanding player in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 19.2 points and 10.8 rebounds per game and impressing Clippers Coach and General Manager Mike Dunleavy with the same drive and skills that defined him as college basketball's player of the year last season as a sophomore at Oklahoma.

After finishing the 2008-09 season with a 19-63 record, the Clippers earned the No.1 pick in the NBA draft and subsequently selected Griffin. He had 30 games with double figures in points and rebounds last year with the Sooners.
Suck that he is going to miss the USA training camp.
