Paul George set for season debut
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 4, 2015) — He’s baaack!
Paul George will return to the Pacers lineup Sunday night when the team hosts the Heat.
George announced his return on Twitter:
The Pacers will be hoping George can provide a late-season boost to get the team into the playoffs. Indiana is currently 10th in the NBA Eastern Conference standings, 1.5 games behind 8th place Miami with six games left in the season.
George broke his leg eight months ago while playing for Team USA and hasn’t played with the Blue and Gold yet this season. Last year, George led the Pacers to the Eastern Conference Finals, averaging 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.
George will meet the media after practice on Saturday afternoon.
