Indiana Pacers Paul George suffers serious injury

One of the Indiana Pacers star players, Paul George, has had a serious accident after fouling James Harden of the Houston Rockets. The Small Forward George is in hospital suffering from lower-right leg fracture, after his leg buckled on court.

USA Basketball confirmed George is being treated by Dr. Riley Williams and other staff at Team USA. George will remain the facility for three days barring any other issues, but early reports say he will be out for this season and the next.

No official prognosis has begun on George, but early looks at the ligaments show immense strain in the muscles, something George will have to refrain from using for quite some time, although it shouldn’t be fatal to his career.


Paul George is one of the Indiana Pacers most valuable players, with better offensive and defensive stats when he is on the court. George has also received many awards in the past year for his efforts, including NBA Most Improved Player of the Year.

At the time of the injury, Indiana Pacers were getting beat 81-71, but the match was cancelled following the injury.

President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird said “There is no question about the impact on our team but our goal is to be as strong-willed and determined as Paul will be in coming back. Any discussion regarding the future of our team would be inappropriate at this time. Our focus is solely on Paul and doing whatever we can to help.”

Paul George signed a five year $90 million deal just last fall with the Indiana Pacers. The news he might be out of the game for a full two seasons is troubling for the Pacers, who are already looking to lowering the amount of players on their team.
