Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin was sent home early from the team’s five game road trip after reportedly breaking his right hand Monday night.

According to ESPN, Griffin suffered the injury, which was reportedly “unrelated to the torn quadriceps muscle that has sidelined Griffin since Dec. 26,” while striking a team staff member during an “undisclosed team-related incident.”

ESPN’s Michael Eaves confirmed the injury Tuesday morning.
