Paul George to Miss at Least 3-4 Weeks with Torn Ligament


“Los Angeles Clippers All-Star F Paul George has a torn ligament in his right elbow and will be re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks, sources tell ESPN.”

Adrian Wojnarowski

The Los Angeles Clippers have suffered another tough blow to their championship contending hopes for the 2021-22 NBA season. Having already lost All-NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard to a torn ACL, who might not return at all this season, the Clippers chances at a deep playoff run looked pretty slim. However, Paul George has been keeping his team afloat, averaging 24.7 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 5.5 APG. The Clippers are currently 5th in the Western Conference (17-15), however, winning games will be incredibly difficult over these next few weeks without both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers have the 3rd hardest remaining schedule, and their upcoming task is certainly not easy (vs. DEN, vs. BKN, @ BOS, @ TOR, @ BKN, vs. MIN, @ PHX).
