NBA Suspends Blake Griffin for Brawl

The NBA will suspend Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin for four games without pay for punching a team employee last month in Toronto. His salary will also be withheld for an additional game. Griffin is currently sidelined with a tendon injury, so the suspension will take place when he is healthy enough to return—likely in March. Following the power forward's brawl with assistant equipment manager Matias Testi, the Clippers rebuked their star player who later issued an apology.
