Blake Griffin suffered an injury to his right hand that could sideline the Clippers forward for a few more weeks, according to an ESPN report.

A Clippers spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.

The injury could imperil Griffin's ability to play in the All-Star game Feb. 14 in Toronto if he is selected to be among the reserves for the Western Conference roster. The reserves will be announced Thursday.

Griffin had already been sidelined since the day after Christmas with a partially torn left quadriceps tendon and had hoped to return on the Clippers' current five-game trip.

But Griffin flew back to Los Angeles on Sunday before the end of a trip that will conclude with games against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday and the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

ESPN reported that the severity of Griffin's hand injury was still being determined.

The Clippers have gone 11-3 in Griffin's absence, though most of the victories have come against teams with losing records.
