Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin will undergo surgery on his right knee this week and is expected to be sidelined until at least January.

The Clippers announced Monday that the arthroscopic procedure would remove loose material from his knee and added the 27-year-old Griffin is expected to miss three to six weeks.

Griffin has struggled recently with left calf and knee soreness. He played 38 minutes in the Clippers' 117-110 loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday, posting 26 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. But he scored no points in the fourth quarter.

Griffin sat out a game on December 10 against the New Orleans Pelicans due to right knee soreness. He has scored 20 or more points in the four NBA games since.
