LOS ANGELES | Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has a broken left kneecap that could sideline the No. 1 overall draft pick for six weeks.

The Clippers confirmed Griffin’s stress fracture late Monday night. The team will reveal further information Tuesday.

Griffin won’t be in the Clippers’ lineup when they face the Lakers in their opener Tuesday night, and the former Oklahoma star could be out much longer.

Griffin broke his kneecap during the Clippers’ final preseason game against New Orleans last Friday, apparently after a dunk that left him wincing in pain.
