Clippers F Paul George has entered health and safety protocols and will miss Friday's Play-In Tournament game against New Orleans according to ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski. (Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)
This is obviously horrible timing for a Clippers team with their season hanging in the balance Friday against New Orleans. Reggie Jackson and Norman Powell will be asked to shoulder the load while Terence Mann, Amir Coffey and Luke Kennard (hamstring) should all see increased roles, as well, with George out. Even if the Clippers win, George’s status for a potential Game 1 in Phoenix is in question too.
