LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin will undergo arthroscopic surgery on Monday to repair the medial meniscus tear of his left knee that he suffered during practice with the U.S. national team in Las Vegas.
The Los Angeles Clippers say Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic will perform the surgery.
Griffin returned to Los Angeles last Thursday after experiencing discomfort in the same knee that bothered him during the playoffs. He will miss the London Olympics, but the Clippers say he should be ready for the start of the NBA season.
