Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin will undergo minor surgery on his right knee and will be out until at least January, according to The Vertical.

The procedure, considered a “clean up,” will be performed early this week.
Griffin will undergo the procedure, considered a “clean up,” early this week, league sources said. Recently, Griffin has also struggled with left calf and knee soreness. Griffin played 38 minutes in the Clippers’ loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday, posting 26 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

Griffin is off to a stellar start to the season for the Clippers, averaging 21 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. The Clippers currently have a 20-8 record, and Griffin’s loss is a significant blow to coach Doc Rivers’ rotation, which will now need to rely upon forwards Marreese Speights, Wesley Johnson and Brandon Bass to play more integral roles.
Griffin had surgery on his right knee in his freshman season at Oklahoma in 2008, and had a procedure for a torn left kneecap as a rookie with the Clippers in 2010.
