Los Angeles Clippers star forward Blake Griffin sustained a concussion after taking an elbow in the forehead late in the first quarter of Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors and will not return.

Griffin drove the baseline and was challenged at the rim by Warriors backup center JaVale McGee with 2:11 remaining in the opening quarter.

Griffin was inadvertently elbowed by McGree on the play and collapsed to the Staples Center floor. After several minutes, Griffin walked to the locker room on his own power.
