Paul George (calf) said he had a good day of rehab on Sunday and he expects to play Monday vs. the Hornets.

George missed Saturday's game with the minor calf issue, but it would be surprising to see this thing turn into a multi-game absence. We should get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but if he is able to get back out there, Alex Abrines' value will take a massive hit with the move back to the second unit.
Dec 10 - 5:35 PM

Paul George (calf) will not play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

He was a game-time call and the Thunder will just keep him out for his second straight game. The team has to be hopeful Carmelo Anthony can get it going today while Russell Westbrook should look a lot like the 2016-17 version of himself. Jerami Grant is a decent bet to start while Alex Abrines, Terrance Ferguson and Kyle Singler could get run.
Dec 9 - 8:38 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said both Paul George (right calf contusion) and Jerami Grant (left hip contusion) will be game-time decisions for Saturday's matchup vs. Memphis.

OKC does not play until 9 pm EST, so, unfortunately, we likely won't have a final determination on Geroge's status until after roster lock in most DFS formats Saturday evening. George was unable to play Thursday, which resulted in Alex Abrines, Kyle Singler and Terrance Ferguson receiving additional playing time. Those three would likely divvy up PG-13's minutes on Saturday as well if he is ruled out.
Dec 9 - 12:51 PM

Paul George (right calf contusion) and Jerami Grant (left hip contusion) are listed as questionable for Saturday against the Grizzlies.

After missing a game, it's pretty standard for teams to say guys are questionable the day before a game, so this doesn't really change anything. George had ice on his calf on Tuesday and it's possible he needs another game off. Alex Abrines, Kyle Singler and Terrance Ferguson may have to step up again, and of course the Thunder would like for Carmelo Anthony to step up more.
Dec 8 - 6:11 PM

Paul George (right calf contusion) will not play on Thursday vs. the Nets.

Royce Young of ESPN said George had his right calf wrapped in ice after the Jazz game on Tuesday, but that's all we know at this point. This doesn't sound like a serious injury, and the Thunder probably feel like they can handle the Nets without him. With Jerami Grant (hip contusion) also out, Patrick Patterson and Alex Abrines could both be looking at more minutes, while Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony will see a bump in usage.
Dec 7 - 11:50 AM

Paul George struggled from the field on Sunday, hitting 2-of-17 field goals to finish with eight points, eight rebounds, four assists and one block.

It was a brutal shooting night for George, whose 41.1% shooting would be the lowest qualifying mark in his eight-year NBA career. He's still averaging a stellar 20.6 points, 3.1 triples, 5.9 boards and 2.5 steals, which has staked him to early-around value in almost any format.
Dec 3 - 11:21 PM

Paul George was terrific in a win over the Wolves on Friday, scoring 36 points with nine dimes, four boards, five 3-pointers and a season-high three blocks.

He and Steven Adams were the stars of the show as they both set each other up brilliantly with screens or dimes. Despite making just eight treys, OKC matched their season high in dimes with 28 in this game, but of course that has a lot to do with Adams. George still leads the league in steals, but today was just third game without a steal. Those steals are a big reason why he's been a top-10 player in standard leagues.
Dec 1 - 11:58 PM

Paul George (illness) scored 22 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in a 121-108 loss to the Magic on Wednesday.

The substitution pattern was a little different than usual, but George still got plenty of minutes. He still only attempted six triples, and the offense really needs to get him going as a shooter. Plus, there was a lot of watching from George and Carmelo Anthony -- Melo scored 16 with seven boards. PG-13 is still posting a ton of hustle stats as he leads the NBA in deflections, so the steals and other stats have helped his value tremendously.
Nov 29 - 10:03 PM

Paul George (illness) said he will play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

"Still under the weather a little bit. I’m still trying to fight through it, but I’m well enough, good enough to be back moving, running and playing again," said George. "Hopefully it’s just a matter of sweating it out." PG-13 was a full participant in Tuesday's practice and is being listed as probable, so owners can feel confident plugging him into their lineups tonight.
Nov 29 - 12:53 PM

Paul George (illness) practiced on Tuesday and is expected to play Wednesday vs. Orlando.

George was unable to practice on Monday but is back on track to suit up vs. the Magic. PG-13 seemed to have found his groove offensively earlier this month, but took a step back late last week. He tallied 16 points on Friday and scored just two points, shooting a putrid 1-for-12 from the floor Saturday night. George has helped maintain his fantasy value by contributing elsewhere; he currently leads the league in steals, at 2.8 thefts per game.
Nov 28 - 1:56 PM

Paul George (illness) sat out Monday's practice.

OKC doesn't play until Wednesday in Orlando, so PG-13 still has a full two days to rest up and get himself ready for that one. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, that would open up minutes for Jerami Grant while Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony would split the usage.

Paul George had one of his worst shooting games of his career on Saturday, making 1-of-12 from the field for two points with six rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and one turnover in 40 minutes.

This marks just the second time in PG13's career that he had more than 10 attempts and made just one shot. OKC is just 8-11 and it could be because the Thunder continue to count on isolation way too much. Per Synergy, the Thunder have three players in the top 12 for isolation possessions and PG13 is the worst of the bunch on efficiency. He's at his best when he's burying treys, which was why he was hot before this one. Bad stats aside, there's little reason to worry from a fantasy perspective.
Nov 25 - 11:41 PM

Paul George racked up five more steals in Friday's loss to Detroit, finishing with 16 points on 17 shots in his 32.5 minutes of action.

The full stat line: 16 points, two boards, two dimes, five steals, two blocks, three turnovers, and two 3-pointers on 7-of-17 shooting. OKC still has some kinks to work out in their approach, but George's elite contributions from distance and in the steals department have kept him in the good graces of fantasy owners who spent an early-round pick on his services. Over his last five outings, George has averaged 3.4 triples and 3.4 steals per contest.
Nov 24 - 11:54 PM

Paul George had 20 points, 11 rebounds, four steals, two blocks and one assist in 40 minutes vs. the Warriors on Wednesday.

He made 8-of-19 shots with four 3-pointers, but it was his ubiquitous defensive presence that helped win this game for OKC. The Warriors have held opponents to less than 50 percent shooting in 33 straight games, the longest streak since 1971, but they did themselves in with turnovers tonight -- OKC scored a 34 points off turnovers, and PG-13 had a big hand in that total.
