Paul George made 7-of-13 from the field and 14-of-15 from the line for 30 points during a 112-104 win over the Pistons on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
After a brutal slump, George has two consecutive games with a field goal percentage greater than 52. George seems to have got his wish from back in the preseason to play less power forward with barely any run there while Myles Turner plays next to him. Expect PG-13 to hang in the top 10-20 range going forward. Feb 6 - 10:25 PM

Paul George scored 31 points during a 102-96 loss to the Hawks on Friday with nine rebounds, six assists and seven 3-pointers.

He only turned the ball over one time in a great game. George was also 11-of-21 from the field to turn in a very efficient line. George had made just 38.1 percent from the field in his previous 10 and that's been a problem since early December. He's still a second-round player in 2016.

Paul George hit just 6-of-18 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, six assists, five steals and a block in 33 minutes on Wednesday.

The shooting, as usual, was a concern, but he filled the stat sheet and the threes, steals and block were all nice. He's no longer playing like one of the best scorers in the league, but is still worth owning and starting every time he plays. He hasn't scored more than 19 points in four straight games, and scored just 11 in two of those.

Paul George feels like his role on the Pacers has changed since the beginning of the season.

After a blistering start to the season, George has slowed a bit and feels that he's been less of a focal point for the Pacers lately. "It’s changed, it’s definitely changed [since the] start of the year," George said. "Just kinda felt like I had the confidence and coach was giving me the confidence with the green light. I’m still confident, guys are still making the right plays. Just seems like a transition a little bit." While George is still worth a nightly start, fantasy owners may want to test his market as he's now shooting just 40.9 percent from the field this season.

Paul George stated that tired legs and general wear and tear through the first 40 games of the season contributed to his shooting slump.

"In November I was just adrenaline-jumped, just feeling myself, it didn’t hit my body yet," said George. "Once you get to 30, 40-plus games you hit that wall and that’s definitely what I went through with my body being tired, being worn out, legs not being strong, not being able to drive, not being able to be explosive." George shot just 41.3 percent from the field through the month of January, although he's been better over the past two games scoring 30-plus points a night. He's been a top-12 guy over the past month, so the slump is behind him to a certain extent.

Paul George hit 12-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for 31 points, 11 boards, three assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's tough 91-89 loss to the Clippers.

George has played very well in two straight games after scoring just 12 points last Friday, so hopefully he's ready to go on another hot streak for the Pacers.

Coach Frank Vogel said the team will watch Paul George's leg and fatigue issues.

There may have been some swelling from Saturday's loss to the Kings, but he did play well with 34 points. George also wasn't settling and he's coming out of a slump. For now, his owners shouldn't be overly concerned.
Jan 25 - 2:25 PM

Paul George said after Saturday's loss to the Kings that he is dealing with some swelling and he reportedly pointed to his left leg.

That is the same leg that forced him to miss the majority of the 2014-15 season, but there's no need to panic just yet. George didn't sound too concerned, and he is likely just a little tired considering we are more than halfway through the season. Coach Frank Vogel has no intention of giving George any rest, so his owners can leave him in all active lineups.
Jan 24 - 12:08 PM

Paul George scored 34 points during a 108-97 loss to the Kings on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

He had three straight games with less than 20 points, so he needed a big game tonight. George is starting to be more aggressive with his shot selection, so that should help prevent the drastic ups and downs. Expect him to be in the top 10-20 going forward in standard leagues.
Jan 24 - 1:09 AM

Paul George didn't do much during Friday's loss to the Warriors, scoring 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting to go with two rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist, three steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

PG-13 is shooting just 39.5 percent from the field over the past month to go with averages of 20.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.7 steals, 2.5 three-pointers and 3.9 turnovers per game which has dropped him to a top-20 evaluation in standard leagues. If he could cut down on the turnovers and increase his shooting percentage he could easily return to first-round status, but those two things are far from a certainty.
Jan 23 - 1:48 AM

Kyle Lowry, Dwyane Wade, Paul George, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony were voted as the starters for the Eastern Conference All-Stars.

PG gets a lot of credit here to bounce back from a broken leg two summers ago and both teams do not have a center or a power forward in their starting five. Wade has not played well at all this season and it's a very easy argument to make that Jimmy Butler should have been a starter. Obviously, All-Star voting isn't about the best player.
Jan 21 - 7:35 PM

Paul George was solid in Tuesday's win over the Suns, scoring 19 points on 5-of-12 shooting.

He helped the Pacers snap a three-game losing streak, and he was able to add eight boards, four assists, four steals and one 3-pointer to his name. George's owners are probably still dreaming about his hot start to the season, but he has still been a top-20 asset over his last five games with averages of 20.6 points, 6.2 boards, 4.2 assists, 2.6 steals, 1.8 3-pointers and 3.8 turnovers per game. He should be more of a second-round guy moving forward.

Paul George (calf) logged 36 minutes vs. the Nuggets, finishing a road loss with 19 points (6-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three 3-pointers, three rebounds, five assists, three steals and four turnovers.

PG-13 has been in an R-rated slump over his past 20 games, shooting just 36.7 percent from the field while averaging 4.4 turnovers. He deferred more offensively tonight and it resulted in an effective line, though he still missed a critical 3-pointer down the stretch that could have tied the game. With any luck Tuesday's matchup vs. the Suns' defense will get him going.
Jan 17 - 11:16 PM

Paul George (calf) will start on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

His calf issue is considered very minor and he shouldn't have any limitations vs. the Nuggets. Make sure PG-13 is active in all your lineups.
Jan 17 - 7:25 PM

Paul George (calf) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

There was some concern on Friday when he said that there was some tightness in his knee, so the fact that they are calling it a calf issue is a good sign. George should be ready to roll on Sunday, and his owners can breathe easy knowing that the injury is likely very minor. He's safe to leave in all lineups. For what it's worth, George was held out of practice on Saturday but is confident that he will be able to play.
