Paul George    G/F  Thunder

 

 

George (calf) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. George missed Thursday's game against the Nets due to a right calf bruise, which is seemingly giving him enough discomfort to put his status into question for Saturday. In his absence, Alex Abrines drew the start, playing 25 minutes and posting five points, two assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block. Kyle Singler also saw increased run, playing 22 minutes and scoring nine points to go along with three rebounds. More word on George's status should be available after he tests out the calf during Saturday's morning shootaround.

Paul George (right calf contusion) and Jerami Grant (left hip contusion) are listed as questionable for Saturday against the Grizzlies. After missing a game, it's pretty standard for teams to say guys are questionable the day before a game, so this doesn't really change anything. George had ice on his calf on Tuesday and it's possible he needs another game off. Alex Abrines, Kyle Singler and Terrance Ferguson may have to step up again, and of course the Thunder would like for Carmelo Anthony to step up more.

George has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nets with a right calf contusion, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports. This comes as a last-second surprise on the Thunder's injury report, as George played 40 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Jazz, but this is likely just a precautionary measure from the team as they travel to Mexico City for Thursday's game. With Jerami Grant (hip) also ruled out, OKC will enter the contest pretty light on depth in the frontcourt, which likely means more minutes on the wing for Alex Abrines and more frontcourt minutes for Patrick Patterson against Brooklyn.

Paul George struggled from the field on Sunday, hitting 2-of-17 field goals to finish with eight points, eight rebounds, four assists and one block. It was a brutal shooting night for George, whose 41.1% shooting would be the lowest qualifying mark in his eight-year NBA career. He's still averaging a stellar 20.6 points, 3.1 triples, 5.9 boards and 2.5 steals, which has staked him to early-around value in almost any format.

Paul George was terrific in a win over the Wolves on Friday, scoring 36 points with nine dimes, four boards, five 3-pointers and a season-high three blocks. He and Steven Adams were the stars of the show as they both set each other up brilliantly with screens or dimes. Despite making just eight treys, OKC matched their season high in dimes with 28 in this game, but of course that has a lot to do with Adams. George still leads the league in steals, but today was just third game without a steal. Those steals are a big reason why he's been a top-10 player in standard leagues.

George tallied 36 points (10-21 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 11-11 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and three blocks across 42 minutes in Friday's 111-107 victory over the Timberwolves. George was excellent against the Wolves, leading his team to a much-needed victory. Although the Thunder have been disappointing so far this season, George has been a beacon of consistency. His move to a new team does not appear to have had a negative effect on his fantasy value, and he still remains an elite option across all fantasy formats.

George tallied 22 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal across 41 minutes during a 121-108 loss to the Magic on Wednesday. George bounced back from his two-point outing with his third game of at least 20 points in the last five games. He remains in a shooting slump, however, as he's show below 43 percent from the field in six of his last seven outings. George has received a lot of minutes this month, as he has a total of eight games during November in which he has played at least 40 minutes.

Paul George (illness) scored 22 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in a 121-108 loss to the Magic on Wednesday. The substitution pattern was a little different than usual, but George still got plenty of minutes. He still only attempted six triples, and the offense really needs to get him going as a shooter. Plus, there was a lot of watching from George and Carmelo Anthony -- Melo scored 16 with seven boards. PG-13 is still posting a ton of hustle stats as he leads the NBA in deflections, so the steals and other stats have helped his value tremendously.

Paul George (illness) said he will play Wednesday vs. the Magic. "Still under the weather a little bit. I’m still trying to fight through it, but I’m well enough, good enough to be back moving, running and playing again," said George. "Hopefully it’s just a matter of sweating it out." PG-13 was a full participant in Tuesday's practice and is being listed as probable, so owners can feel confident plugging him into their lineups tonight.
