Paul George    G/F  Thunder

 

 

George finished with 18 points (6-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 36 minutes during Saturday's 111-96 loss to the Knicks. George and the Thunder suffered another tough defeat, going down to an understrength New York team. He has been good so far this season, without being spectacular. The Thunder still look lost on offense, relying on a lot of isolation plays to find their points. The team was without Steven Adams (concussion) for this game, and it showed on the defensive end. They were also coming off a triple-overtime game against the 76ers the previous night. They will look to try and turn things around against the Nuggets on Monday.

Paul George scored 18 points with nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday. He hasn't quite been the same since he returned from a calf injury, averaging just 18.5 points, 5.3 boards, 3.7 dimes, 2.3 steals and 3.3 treys while making just 36.9 percent from the field in those four. We've seen George go through slumps before and the team should really be looking to get him more involved because he was quite a play-maker in Indiana. Maybe you can buy low on him, but chances are his owners isn't concerned and rightfully so.

George scored 24 points (8-23 FG, 5-11 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist and three steals across 45 minutes in Friday's 119-117 triple overtime win against Philadelphia. Despite sitting with three fouls and six points in the first quarter, George ended up sinking 5-of-11 shots from beyond the arc. Friday's three-point show as the only redeeming part of what was a 34.7 percent shooting performance. George continues to shoot poorly for the season, dipping to a career-low 40.8 percent from the floor. The end result of 24 points is palatable. However, the continued poor shooting is hard to swallow for the career 43 percent shooter.

Paul George faced the Pacers for the first time since being traded to OKC, finishing a 100-94 road victory with 12 points (3-of-14 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), five assists, three steals and two rebounds in 33 minutes. George was relentlessly booed by the home crowd in Indiana, something he knew was coming. "[If] I get booed, I get booed. It's part of the game," he said. "It'll make for a good show, and I'm looking forward to it." The hostile reception may have played into his poor shooting (he also committed four turnovers), but he salvaged the line with dimes, steals and a pair of 3-pointers. His focus now is on helping OKC make the playoffs -- with a 13-14 record, the Thunder are tied with Utah for the No. 8 seed in the West.

George finished with 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 116-103 loss to Charlotte. George returned to action after missing the last two games with a calf injury and looked healthy in 33 minutes of action. Unfortunately, the Thunder suffered another tough loss, still appearing to struggle with their rhythm. The fact that he played 33 minutes should instill confidence in his owners, and he will look to build on this performance when they travel to Indiana for a matchup with Victor Oladipo and the Pacers.

Paul George hit 7-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steals in 34 minutes on Monday after missing a couple games with a calf injury. George looked pretty good, although the same can't be said for the Thunder, who have lost to the Hornets and Nets in the last four days. His calf injury appears to be behind him and owners should plan on starting him again until further notice.

Paul George (calf) will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Hornets. He'll be returning from a two-game absence, and there's been no word on any sort of minutes limit, so go ahead and get him active. With PG-13 back in action, there won't be as much opportunity on offense for Carmelo Anthony and Alex Abrines.

Paul George (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Charlotte. For what it's worth, George did say that he expects to play after a productive day of rehab on Sunday. A player's optimism is never the final word, of course, OKC could play it safe here, but we'll know more after shootaround.

Paul George (calf) said he had a good day of rehab on Sunday and he expects to play Monday vs. the Hornets. George missed Saturday's game with the minor calf issue, but it would be surprising to see this thing turn into a multi-game absence. We should get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but if he is able to get back out there, Alex Abrines' value will take a massive hit with the move back to the second unit.

George (calf) indicated he "should be back" for Monday's game against the Hornets, Brett Dawson of the Oklahoman reports. George has missed the last two games with a calf bruise, but reportedly had a good day of rehab Sunday and now believes he'll be able to return Monday. That said, George will still have to get clearance from the team's medical staff and he may want to go through Monday's morning shootaround as well in order to test out the injury for any lingering discomfort. Consider him questionable for now, though he appears to be trending towards playing.
