LOS ANGELES ( — Blake Griffin hurt his hand in an altercation with a member of the Los Angeles Clippers’ staff on the team’s current road trip and will be sidelined just as he was nearing a return from another injury.

Coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday that the team would be releasing a statement about the incident and that it would be addressed more fully before the Clippers’ evening in Indianapolis. A team spokesman confirmed the altercation, but provided no further details.

The hand injury–which is unrelated to the torn quadriceps muscle that has forced Griffin to miss the last 14 games–was reportedly suffered during “an undisclosed team-related incident”, reported.

ESPN SportsCenter anchor Michael Eaves reported on Twitter that Griffin was hurt “after hitting a member of the team’s equipment staff during an argument in Toronto.”

The altercation reportedly started in a restaurant and then “proceeded outside where Griffin hit the equipment staffer multiple times,” according to Eaves.

Griffin is still being evaluated by team officials, reported.
