F - LAC - OUT
Paul George is not with the Clippers on the current two-game road trip.
The same with Luke Kennard as they will miss Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers and Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Kawhi Leonard is also out Tuesday and his status for Wednesday is unknown. Marcus Morris, Terance Mann and Amir Coffey should remain in the starting lineup with the Clippers completely banged up.
Paul George (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Golden State Warriors.
George is dealing with a hamstring injury of some kind that will leave him unavailable to play on Wednesday. It's unclear how severe of an injury it is, and he's at risk of missing more time beyond this game. Marcus Morris Sr. should be in line to see additional minutes until the veteran is back in the rotation.
Paul George (knee) is questionable to play in Monday's matchup against the Utah Jazz.
George couldn't finish the Clippers' last game due to knee soreness, and it will also threaten his availability for Monday. The team will likely make a decision on his availability closer to game time, and fantasy managers can expect more work for Marcus Morris Sr. if George is unavailable against the Jazz.
Paul George dropped 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-8 3PT), one rebound, one assist and two steals in 15 minutes before exiting Saturday'sgame against the Spurs with right knee soreness.
George's early exit from tonight's game remains somewhat of an enigma, as it is unclear when or how he sustained the injury. Nonetheless, he turned in a strong scoring performance with 21 points in only 15 minutes. Fantasy managers and Clippers fans alike will need to keep an eye on his status for Monday's game against Utah, but for now they can appreciate a statement victory for Los Angeles.
Paul George chipped in 16 points (5-18 FG, 3-6 3PT, 3-3 FT) while also recording one steal, grabbing nine rebounds, and dishing out three assists in the Clippers' 96-91 win over the Pistons.
George has now finished in double-figures in each of his last five games for the Clippers, averaging 23.4 points per game on 40.6% shooting in that span. The veteran forward has had to shoulder the burden early on this season in Los Angeles, averaging 23.8 points, 4.5 assists, and 6.3 rebounds per game while posting an elite usage rate of 30.6%.
