Right on Simmons' "Clippers Curse Comment" cue, rookie Blake Griffin(notes) may miss Tuesday's regular season opener after tweaking his knee in Friday's meaningless preseason game against the Hornets.
Griffin suffered the injury to his left knee after coming down off a massive dunk in the third quarter.
According to the L.A. Times, Griffin did not practice Sunday and is expected to be examined by team doctors on Monday. And knowing the Clippers' questionable medical staff, he'll likely miss the entire 2009-10 regular season after a team doctor accidentally blinds the kid with his pen flashlight.
UPDATE: Griffin may miss up to six weeks with a stress fracture of his left patella. Damn you, Clippers! Damn you to hell!
