With Kawhi Already Out, Clippers Lose Second Superstar Indefinitely
Has Paul George been playing semi-pro baseball on the side?
On Christmas, news broke that the Los Angeles Clippers superstar will be sidelined for at least 3-to-4 weeks after suffering a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.
A common injury suffered by pitchers in baseball, a torn UCL is usually fixed with Tommy John Surgery. Thankfully for George, that will not be the case as the Clippers will rest George for the next month after which he will be re-evaluated. George initially suffered a sprained elbow on December 6 in a game against the Portland Trail Blazers after which he rehabbed and rested the injury for two weeks.
George returned to game action on December 20, but will be forced to sit out yet again.
“It took some hits today, couple stingers,” George said following the Clippers December 20th loss to the San Antonio Spurs. “We’ll see how it feels tomorrow, not sure it will be sore or not.”
Through 26 games, George has averaged 24.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
