NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Clippers at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this might not be great news for the Clippers. Star power forward Blake Griffin was seen heading to the locker room late in the second quarter of Game 3 between the Clippers and Jazz in Salt Lake City.

The broadcasters on ESPN2 speculated that Griffin had turned his ankle on a drive to the rim against Rodney Hood.

Early signs weren’t great, as Griffin returned shortly after with a sneaker off.

Griffin had 11 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal on 5-9 shooting in 18 minutes before leaving the game.

UPDATE: The Clippers are reporting Blake hurt his big toe and will be getting X-Rays.

UPDATE: Blake is out for the rest of the game. Welp.
