L.A. Clippers Blake Griffin Disgrace to Team ... Will Be Punished

0126-blake-griffin-noThe L.A. Clippers have come out strong to condemn the actions of Blake Griffin -- confirming he punched a guy on Jan. 23rd ... and calling his actions disgraceful. 

The team issued a statement saying, "Griffin suffered a spiral fracture of the 4th metacarpal in his right hand throwing a punch on Jan. 23rd in Toronto."

"His conduct has no place in our organization and this incident does not represent who we are as a team."

"We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken."

The statement comes in the wake of reports Griffin punched the team's assistant equipment manager during a dispute at a restaurant. 

The Clippers say Blake already had a surgical procedure done on his hand early Tuesday morning -- and will need 4 to 6 weeks to recover. 

As TMZ Sports first reported, police in Toronto are NOT investigating the incident ... claiming no one filed a report against the NBA star.
