LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin has apologized for punching a Los Angeles Clippers staff member last month, saying he wishes he could take back the incident that left him with a broken right hand and the employee with facial injuries.
Griffin was suspended four games and docked five games' pay totaling $859,442 for the altercation with Matias Testi at a Toronto restaurant on Jan. 23.
Griffin is expected to be sidelined until sometime next month by his injury and ensuing suspension. He wore a black wrap on his hand at practice.
Griffin says Tuesday "It's something I think about every day and wish I could take it back, and I've told Matias that."
