Blake Griffin, who was already recovering from a quadriceps injury, will be out for approximately four to six weeks with a broken hand after fighting with a Clippers staffer at a restaurant in Toronto earlier this week. According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, the other person involved in the fight is assistant equipment manager Matias Testi. Judging from Testi’s Instagram—which is now private—he and Griffin go way back.
Here are the two before the season started:

Griffin also posted a couple of photos of Testi on his own account, and wished him a happy birthday in 2013:
Toronto police don’t have any complaints filed related to the incident, but the NBA and Clippers plan to investigate what happened, according to Amick.
