Paul George (knee) still doesn’t have a timetable for a return to action, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
UPDATE (Mar. 23):

Reports from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski state that George will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks after MRI results showed he has a sprained right knee.

It’s likely that George’s injury will keep him out for the rest of the season.

UPDATE (Mar. 22):

George was helped off the court after he apparently hurt his leg colliding with guard Luguentz Dort’s knee in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s 101-100 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

George left the Arena on a cart with his right leg extended and the Clippers have not yet released any information on the injury.

Some fans pointed out that George may have broken the same leg in two places four years ago while playing for the U.S. national team.

George has now scored 20 or more points in five consecutive games, and he has recorded at least seven assists in three of those games.

During the Clippers’ current four-game winning streak, he is averaging 27.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 3.0 three-pointers, and 1.0 steals in 38.5 minutes.

UPDATE (Mar. 11):

Since January 31st, Paul George has started every game for the Clippers. The six-time All-NBA pick has scored 20 or more points in 11 of his last 13 games, including a season-high 42 in a win over Memphis, where he also pulled down 11 boards.

UPDATE (Feb. 10):

During Wednesday’s 110-104 loss to the Mavericks, George had 20 points (8-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 steal in 34 minutes.

George had the same number of points and field goal attempts at the end of the game, but the veteran forward still had a good fantasy line because he contributed in other ways. George has scored at least 20 points in each of his last three games. Since the beginning of January, he has averaged 21.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.
