It appears the Los Angeles Clippers will be without their star power forward for at least the next few weeks.

Blake Griffin reportedly has a suspected fracture in his right hand suffered during an undisclosed team-related incident, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Griffin has already been sent home from Los Angeles' five-game road trip.

He was close to returning after tearing his quadriceps in late December. The Clippers have been resilient in his absence, posting a 11-3 record.

The 26-year-old was playing at an All-Star level prior to his injury, averaging 23.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, and five assists, while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor in 30 contests.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has struggled in his role as the Clippers' replacement starter, averaging just three points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.4 minutes.
