Revealed on the LA Clippers Blog yesterday, the NBA’s #1 Draft selection Blake Griffin, suffered a non-displaced stress fracture on his left patella and will receive Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment. Griffin was injured in the last pre-season game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday, October 23. His MRI confirmed the diagnosis given by the Clippers team doctor and another specialist, Neal ElAttrache. Elattrache administered Platelet-Rich Plasma to Takashi Saito, pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier in the year. Griffin is to return in action in 6 weeks following bone stimulation and PRP Treatment.
