Paul George Could Be Out For Remainder Of Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 12, 2022 4:12 pm

The Los Angeles Clippers are operating under the possibility that Paul George may not return to game action this season, sources tell Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.


George sustained a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow earlier this season.


The Clippers announced the injury on Christmas Day and gave a 3-4 week timetable for when he would be reevaluated.

We saw the playoffs without Kawhi... Will we see the playoffs without PG13... Will we ever see them play a full season and finish together?

Played by what? Their two stars have injuries and they probably aren't going that far without both of them.

It's actually really fascinating when you look at how similar the comparisons are.

I'm not sure it a curse. It's more just bad karma.

We saw them together in the playoffs and they still lost. Kawhi will never win a title with the clippers. Should have stayed with the Raptors. He would have atleast 2 rings with the raps.

Very similar but less longterm I think. PG and Kawhi (who has been careful forever) should both come back. Hill was done for a long time until the end of his career which in itself was a great story imho. Don't know that the Clips will ever win like the magic but I don't think the injuries are as tragic. Didn't mean to rhyme

Kawhi is expected back any day and we don't know that George is out for the season.
