Blake Griffin heard the Clippers' message and then offered an apology for his actions over the weekend.

The Clippers forward apologized after it was learned he was involved in a physical altercation with equipment manager Matias Testi in a Toronto restaurant Saturday. Several reports said that Griffin punched Testi repeatedly in the head, while the Clippers acknowledged that Griffin broke a finger while throwing a punch .

“A situation among friends escalated and I regret the way I handled myself towards someone I care about,” Griffin tweeted. “I want to apologize to the Clippers organization, my teammates and the fans for creating a distraction. I am working with the team on a resolution and getting back in the game as soon as possible.”

Griffin is expected to miss four to six weeks, according to the team. He had been nearing a return from a quadriceps injury and hoped to be back in the lineup

as soon as Wednesday.
