‘Clippers good news’ George raised the possibility of returning to the PO in the second half of the first round
Paul George (32, LA Clippers) is more likely to recover from an injury and return during the first round of the playoffs.
On the morning of the 13th (Korean time토토사이트), George illuminated his face at the Clippers practice arena.
On this day, George trained in stationary situations such as free throws and mid-range jumpers. George, who was originally scheduled to return during the second round of the playoffs, seems to be going through the rehabilitation process faster than expected.
Accordingly, the Clippers predicted George’s return by advancing it to the 3rd and 4th games of the 1st round of the playoffs. However, since it is important to completely recover from an injury, there is a possibility that he will not actually participate.
On the 22nd of last month, George was injured in a home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He injured his right knee at the end of the game, and an MRI revealed it to be a sprained knee. Accordingly, he decided to go through a rehabilitation process and undergo a reexamination in 2-3 weeks.
George’s return comes as good news for the Clippers. With Leonard gradually improving his form, Russell Westbrook has established himself well with the Clippers. In addition, the bench lineup led by Norman Powell, Bonds Hyland and Mason Plumlee is also competing for the highest level in the league. If George is added here, the Clippers will not lose their star influence to Phoenix, their first round opponent in the playoffs.
Meanwhile, George played 56 games this season and played 34.6 minutes per game. He averaged 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and 45.7% (17.9 attempts) 3-point success rate, 37.1% (7.6 attempts), and 87.1% (5.3 attempts) free throw success rate.
