Paul George made his return to Team USA action on Friday, scoring 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.
It was his first Team USA televised game since his horrific leg injury. George had a couple breakaway dunks and he justifiably took it easy on those. After the game on NBATV, he did add it was "eerie" for him to get back on the court and said there were a lot of emotions. George looked better than expected last year, especially early in the season. Even with the new players, he's still expected to have a great season with the vast majority of his minutes coming at small forward. Jul 22 - 11:09 PM

Paul George said that now that he's fully recovered from his surgically repaired left leg, there's "no thought" in his mind that he's "limited" in any way.

"Now I know I'm healthy, I know I'm OK, I know I'm 100 percent," George said. "I'm back to being myself. It's no limitations. It's no thought in my mind that I'm limited to something. I kind of just feel like all the chains are off of me and I'm free now." George also added that playing for Team USA "means a lot," and he feels getting back on the court for the US National Team will be a sort of "redemption" for himself after suffering that gruesome leg injury two years ago.

Paul George said that he'll work on improving his off the ball play during the 2016 Olympic Games.

"Now it's about learning how to play off the ball," said George. "I think that's where guys take that next step. Learning how to space the floor. Learning how to cut. Learning how to play on the boards; battle the boards. I think just playing off the ball is where guys take that next step." PG-13 was a top-15 stud in 9-cat leagues during the 2014-15 season, and he'll make for a fine late-first, early-second round selection on draft day.

Paul George has accepted an invitation to play with Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

George suffered a gruesome broken leg the last time he played for Team USA and is hoping to use these Olympics as closure from that injury. The 26-year-old had a fantastic 2015-16 season after sitting out most of 2014-15 and should be an early-round fantasy consideration in 2016-17 after averaging a career-high 23.1 points to go along with 7.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.6 treys last season.

Paul George said he's "very excited" to play for Team USA this summer.

The last time he played for Team USA in televised action, he suffered a broken leg. George said these Olympics will be "the final chapter" to close the book on his injury. He was extremely durable last season with 81 games and finishing in the top 10 for total minutes.

Paul George said he'd like to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games.

"I think since I've been off, my body's telling me yes, my mind is telling me yes, people around me are telling me yes," said George regarding whether he's recovered enough from the NBA season to compete in the Olympics. "So I feel good about it. And, you know... I want to give it a shot." George suffered a gruesome leg injury during a Team USA scrimmage two years ago, but that will not stop him from suiting up for Team USA should he be granted the opportunity.

The Pacers are "absolutely not" looking to move Paul George, according to sources of Steve Kyler.

Kyler was reportedly laughed off the phone when he asked one of his Indiana sources if the Pacers were at all looking into dealing George, which is pretty much the reaction you'd expect. An earlier rumor from Bill Simmons stated that the Lakers would like to try and trade for George this summer, but that rumor makes zero sense for Indiana given what L.A. could offer.

The Lakers would reportedly like to try and trade for Paul George this summer, according to sources of Bill Simmons.

If the Lakers are able to secure a top-3 selection in the 2016 draft, they would reportedly like to use that pick among other assets (likely D'Angelo Russell) to try and lure PG-13 away from Indiana. While anything is possible, it would be extremely shocking to see Larry Bird deal away a top-15 player entering his prime in order to go through a full rebuild with unproven talent.

Paul George admitted that he "ran out of gas a little bit" in Indiana's Game 7 loss vs. Toronto.

I definitely was winded late in the game,," he said. It's not hard to understand why after George played 81 of 82 regular season games and finished with 40-plus minutes in four of his last five playoff contests, but the good news is that PG-13 illustrated showed us he can still routinely transform into the R-rated version. George also said "the game just really slowed down" for him, something that undoubtedly eased his transition back into familiar territory. It will cost you a top 15 selection to nab George in fantasy drafts for next season.

Paul George finished the Pacers' tense 89-84 defeat in Game 7 on Sunday with 26 points (8-of-18 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, four 3-pointers, three steals and one assist.

George got off to a torrid start, including a 360 dunk in the first quarter, but Toronto zeroed in on him defensively (forcing seven turnovers) and his singular brilliance wasn't enough tonight. It was nevertheless a tremendous year for PG-13, who bounced back from a lost season to average 23.1 points, 2.6 threes, 7.0 boards, 4.1 assists and 1.9 steals while playing in 81 games during the 2015-16 regular season.

Paul George scored 21 points during a 101-83 Game 6 victory over the Raptors on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

This was basically the bizarro version of Game 5. The Pacers got red hot in the second half with an 18-0 run to put the game out of reach. George checked out with 3:08 left due to garbage time, so he would've been at 43 minutes had the game been close. There was talk of him playing 48 minutes before this game, so he'll likely be in the 43-48 range in Game 7 on Sunday. You almost have to start him in DFS.

Coach Frank Vogel won't commit to playing Paul George 48 minutes on Friday.

Vogel did say the second unit will have a shorter leash. In Game 5, the Pacers had an unfathomable 7.8 offensive rating in the seven minutes without George. That was ultimately their undoing, so George is a good bet to play at least 44 minutes tonight. He's almost a must-play option in DFS.

Paul George says he's willing to play 48 minutes in Game 6 in Indiana on Friday.

"If that's the direction that the game is going, I'm all for it," George said. "Whatever we got to do to win, I'm doing it." Coach Frank Vogel already hinted that he will play him all 48 minutes "if necessary," as PG-13 was a +15 in 41 minutes in Tuesday's loss. DFS owners can feel good about locking George into lineups tonight.
Apr 29 - 9:15 AM

Frank Vogel hinted that Paul George may be on the court for all 48 minutes during Friday's Game 6 against the Raptors.

"If necessary," Vogel said when asked if George could play 48 minutes in Game 6. "We'll see tomorrow night." PG-13 was phenomenal during Game 5, matching his playoff career-high with 39 points, but the Pacers really struggled any time he wasn't on the floor. Game 6 is a must-win game for Indiana, so it wouldn't be surprising to see George play a hefty amount of minutes.
Apr 28 - 2:48 PM

Paul George matched his playoff career high with 39 points in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, shooting 11-of-19 from the field and 12-of-12 from the line.

He was a +15 in 41 minutes and added eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers, yet the Pacers still lost by three because George didn't have much help and they were torched every time he went to the bench for a quick rest. The Pacers were up by as many as 17 points, but they were outscored 25-9 in the fourth quarter and now trail the Raptors 3-2 in the series. PG-13 has been the best player in this series and he will look to tie things up in Indiana for Game 6 on Friday.
