Video: Pistons' Blake Griffin Elbowed in the Face, Expected to Miss Time

All Blake Griffin wanted for Christmas was a healthy season and it looks like that's unfortunately not going to be the case after the Detroit Pistons' forward was elbowed in the face.

The play happened against the Golden State Warriors where Warriors rookie James Wiseman came down with a rebound and popped Griffin right in the kisser.

Griffin looked shaken up on the play and entered concussion protocol.

Griffin finished the night playing 17 minutes, scoring eight points, five rebounds and three assists.
