The Clippers announced today that Blake Griffin will serve an NBA-mandated four game suspension for an incident where he punched Clippers assistant equipment manager Mathias Testi outside of a Toronto restaurant. The suspension will be without pay and the wages from a fifth game will be withheld. The Clippers will donate the salary withheld from Griffin to charities focused on underprivileged youth in Los Angeles, and Griffin will spend time with these charities as well.
It's still a situation where Griffin will miss over a month while recovering from surgery to repair the hand he broke in the incident, but at least he'll only have a four-game suspension on top of it.
