2009 #1 NBA Draft Choice Blake Griffin, of the Los Angeles Clippers, sustained a non-displaced stress fracture in his left patella and will undergo Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment. Griffin was injured in the last pre-season game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday, October 23. His MRI confirmed the diagnosis given by the Clippers team doctor and another specialist, Neal ElAttrache. Elattrache administered Platelet-Rich Plasma to Takashi Saito, pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier in the year. Griffin is to return in action in 6 weeks following bone stimulation and PRP Treatment.
