Paul George made 5-of-13 from the field for 16 points against the Magic on Friday, adding three rebounds, three assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
While he didn't shoot the ball well, the stat-stuffing line is great to see. George is going to be more comfortable at small forward this year after logging a ton of minutes at the four last year. He's in his prime and could even eclipse his 23.1 points per game last year. George is in the mix as a top-10 pick. Oct 14 - 9:52 PM

The Pacers will play their normal starting lineup on Friday vs. the Magic.

Paul George (illness) is expected to play against the Magic on Friday.

George was able to return for a full practice on Thursday, and looks to be over the illness that caused him to miss Wednesday's game. The 26-year-old is poised for another strong season in new head coach Nate McMillan's offense and is remains a solid target in the later part of the first round.

Paul George (illness) did not play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

There were conflicting reports about his status, but it never made sense for Indy to play their franchise cornerstone at less than full health in a preseason game. He's day-to-day and this obviously doesn't impact his outlook.
Oct 12 - 10:19 PM

Updating a previous item, Paul George reportedly will not play on Wednesday.

He's out, he's in, and he's out again. George didn't start the game and it's safe to assume that we won't see him tonight.

Updating a previous item, Paul George (illness) will play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

We do have to exercise some caution here. This is coming from the Bucks side of things and there has been no other report here, but this reporter has some very good credibility. He's likely going to be limited tonight and we'll look for another update to back this up.
Oct 12 - 6:55 PM

Paul George (strep throat) will not play on Wednesday and Glenn Robinson III is expected to start in his place.

With C.J. Miles out, the suddenly hot GR3 should get a good chance. Robinson has a fantastic 72.4 true shooting percentage in his 74 minutes this preseason. As for George, he should be ready to go for the weekend.
Oct 12 - 6:09 PM

Paul George (illness) is considered doubtful to play on Wednesday.

The story hasn't changed since the Pacers reported George was doubtful back on Tuesday. With their star likely out, we should see Glenn Robinson III start while there is more Monta Ellis and Jeff Teague.
Oct 12 - 3:42 PM

Nate McMillan said that Paul George (illness) "probably won't play" Wednesday vs. Milwaukee.

He's just dealing with a sore throat, so there's absolutely no way this impacts PG-13 during the regular season. George remains a solid late first-round, early second-round target.
Oct 11 - 6:47 PM

Paul George (illness) is hoping to return to practice on Tuesday.

George has been dealing with a sore throat, but said he's "hopeful" he'll be able to practice on Tuesday. George looks to be on track to play in Wednesday's preseason games against the Bucks, and fantasy owners can expect him to return first-round value in standard leagues this season.
Oct 11 - 11:09 AM

Paul George missed practice on Monday because of a sore throat.

It's not serious and coach Nate McMillan hopes to have him back on Tuesday. McMillan also hinted that he expects George to play in Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. If he sits, Glenn Robinson III will see some extended run.
Oct 10 - 1:27 PM

Paul George (rest) will not play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

It's just a maintenance day for George and there is no injury to report. With the Pacers expected to push the pace, PG-13 should flirt with first-round value in standard leagues. Glenn Robinson III will draw the start.
Oct 7 - 1:44 PM

Paul George said the Pacers are capable of averaging 115 points per game.

While acknowledging the team is still getting used to their new system, George expressed confidence in the Pacers scoring potential. "Everything was just free flow and we’re still trying to figure that out," George said after Tuesday's game. "We’ve been so used to a set or calling of plays and now we’re getting that freedom. I think that’s going to take some time, but once we get it, we could easily be a 115-point team a night." The 26-year-old needs to improve his efficiency a bit, but he's still capable of returning first-round fantasy value this season.
Oct 6 - 9:04 AM

Paul George scored 11 points vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

George was a top-15 player in standard leagues last season despite shooting 41.8 percent from the field with 3.3 turnover per game, and while he hit just 2-of-9 shots with a pair of turnovers tonight, his efficiency should be on the rise with Jeff Teague and Thaddeus Young in town. He should flirt with first-round value this season, but his efficiency will be the key.
Oct 4 - 11:13 PM

Paul George said he's willing to play some minutes as a power forward, but coach Nate McMillan referred to him as a "versatile [small forward]."

The Pacers tried to start George at PF last season but he was vocal about his desire to remain a SF. The addition of Thaddeus Young this offseason means that George can stick to his favored position more often, and a faster-paced offense should result in another elite campaign for the 26-year-old All-Star.
