Free-agent-to-be Paul George Undergoes Surgery on Knee, Out 6-8 Weeks
The Indiana Pacers are willing to evaluate a potential fit if they do in fact choose to chase Paul George in free agent, but there will be a slight red flag to consider.
George, who played all but one year of his career with the Pacers spent last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Before he is set to enter free agency this summer, the All-Star forward underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Wednesday and is expected to be out for the next 6-8 weeks.
The surgery was performed by the renowned Dr. Neal ElAttrache in California. ElAttrache is a widely known name around the sporting industry, performing Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgeries to a countless amount of MLB pitchers.
On the season, the five-time All-Star suited up in 79-games and has averaged 21.9-points and 5.7-rebounds per game.
