Five takeaways from the Clippers' 120-115 win over the Lakers:

1. Clippers forward Blake Griffin sprained the medial collateral ligament of his left knee in a collision in Monday night’s game at Staples Center.

A timetable for his return has not yet been given, but Griffin probably will be out for a while.

After the game, the Clippers said that Griffin would get further evaluation Tuesday.

The injury occurred on a freak play late in the fourth quarter. Lakers guard Lonzo Ball dribbled around the Clippers’ Austin Rivers and into the lane. Ball lost the basketball, tried to retrieve it and lowered his shoulder into Griffin, knocking him over.

Rivers also converged on the play and fell into Griffin’s left knee, twisting him to the floor. Griffin fell onto his back in pain.
