Paul George Injury: Tyronn Lue’s words

A sigh of relief for the Los Angeles Clippers: Paul George avoids a ligament injury and will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks

Coach Lue commenta la sconfitta contro i Kings

No ligament damage. Paul George avoids another serious injury to his right leg, the one that already suffered a torn ACL in 2014.

The MRI revealed that it is a sprain, so Paul George will have to wait just under a month before returning to play. He will miss the end of the regular season, in which the Clippers (39-35) are fighting to secure direct qualification to the 2023 NBA Playoffs.

He’s pretty disappointed, but it’s the best scenario that could have happened. He will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks and we can’t wait. He’s down, as he should be when the end of the regular season comes and you want to help the team. We’ll support him 100%.

This means that George will most likely be re-evaluated during the NBA Play-In (April 11-14), with the post-season starting on the 15th.

Meanwhile, during the night, coach Lue’s team received positive signals from the team that won 127-105 against the Oklahoma City Thunder (recovering from the defeat two days ago) with 32 points from a Kawhi Leonard who made 13/15 from the field and 24 points with 7 assists from Russell Westbrook.
