Paul George    G/F  Thunder

 

 

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.

George (calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Erik Horne of the Oklahoman reports. George will be missing a second straight game, as he continues to work his way back from a right calf bruise. The fact that he attempted to go through warmups is encouraging that he's close to making a return, so there's certainly a shot he's back in time for Monday's matchup with the Hornets. Tentatively consider him questionable for that contest and in the meantime, Alex Abrines should pick up another start after posting five points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 26 minutes Thursday.

Paul George (calf) will not play on Saturday against the Grizzlies. He was a game-time call and the Thunder will just keep him out for his second straight game. The team has to be hopeful Carmelo Anthony can get it going today while Russell Westbrook should look a lot like the 2016-17 version of himself. Jeramin Grant is a decent bet to start while Alex Abrines, Terrance Ferguson and Kyle Singler could get run.
