Even the worst scenario was brought up. Local media reported that Paul George (Clippers), who suffered a knee injury, could be out for the season.
The LA Clippers lost 100-101 after a close match in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder held at the Los Angeles Crypto.com Arena in California on the 22nd (Korean time). The Clippers failed to win two games in a row and were in 5th place in the Western Conference.
More painful than defeat was George’s injury. George collided with Lugenz Dot in the process of landing after a rebound in the middle of the 4th quarter and suffered an injury that broke his right knee. George, who complained of pain, was immediately replaced and headed to the hospital. 스포츠토토
The local press, ‘SIC’, which specializes in news of injuries to professional players such as the NBA and Major League, said about George, “According to the expert’s opinion, his joints are greatly bent and he is showing symptoms of a bone fracture. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is also a concern. In this case, not only the regular league but also the playoffs can be out.”
After suffering a horrific shin injury while playing for the Indiana Pacers, George successfully returned from rehab and played a one-two punch with Kawhi Leonard for the Clippers via the Oklahoma City Thunder. This season, he started all 55 games and averaged 23.9 points, 2.9 3-point shots (37.5% success rate), 6.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.5 steals.
George is expected to undergo a detailed diagnosis in the near future. ‘SIC’ reported, “Surgery may be avoided, but there is a high possibility that he will be out in the regular league.”
