USA Today, Injuries mount for the U.S. men's basketball team, the latest being Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin is out of the London Games with a meniscus tear in his left knee.
This is the same knee Griffin sprained in the NBA playoffs.
"If we don't have (Griffin), that's a big loss. He was playing really well for us," U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
Griffin will need arthroscopy, but Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said he is "relieved" that his All-Star should be ready for the start of NBA training camp.
"Missing out on the Olympic experience will be tough for him to take. I know how dedicated he was to doing that," Del Negro said in a statement. "We're glad we can get this fixed now and take advantage of the available time for him to fully recover."
USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said there had been no indication anything was wrong after practice Wednesday, the same day Griffin signed a five-year extension with the Clippers that could be worth as much as $95 million. But Griffin awoke Thursday with swelliing and discomfort. (USAToday.com)
