Paul George said that he had some insecurities concerning his shoulder until recently feeling better over the last few weeks. He also added that he was less than 100 percent during the season, but that he now feels like himself again with no shoulder issues. (Jovan Buha on Twitter)
After sustaining several injuries this past year, it is great to hear that George is in good form entering the NBA restart. With the break allowing for the team to get healthy, the Clippers will look to make an aggressive run at the championship. This year he has played in 42 contests and has averaged 29.1 minutes of playing time, 21.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.3 steals, and .5 blocks per game. Despite not being 100 percent, George’s production still puts him in must-start territory, especially now that his “clean” bill of health could open even more opportunities for him to contribute. His high-floor and high-ceiling make him an incredible asset to own in all fantasy formats.
