Yeah, his body is not holding up to the game. The long term effect of suffering debilitating injuries (repetitive too, right knee, ankle, toe) is the postponement that occurs in adding new skill and technique to one's game. Considering how many times Griff's missed extensive parts of seasons, it's understandable to me that about all he added was the jumper and an improved FT conversion rate.

Now, it's the left knee.


Ehh, he is semi injury prone but this last one was a fluke. He got rolled up on.


Half of injury prone players injuries are "flukes".. he punched a dude and broke his hand

Good point. Andrew Bynum's first two knee injuries seemed like flukes, but later it was clear his knees were just messed up and injury prone.
