LAS VEGAS – As if support on Twitter and Instagram weren’t enough, Paul George is getting visitors to make things a little better after his major injury on Friday night.
This weekend Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski stopped by to wish his best to the Pacers forward after he suffered a compound fracture of his tibia and fibula during the Blue and White Scrimmage at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
Also paying a visit was boxer Floyd Mayweather, who posted of his visit on Twitter:

Since he entered the Sunrise Hospital, George’s parents along with Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard have been there with George to offer support following the surgery to repair his leg early Saturday morning.
It is expected that George will return to Indianapolis sometime early this week to begin rehabilitation on the right leg. George will likely miss the 2014-2015 NBA season because of the severity of the injury.
Indianapolis Star Pacers' beat reporter Candace Buckner is in Las Vegas following the story. Charly Arnolt spoke with Buckner about George's injury on FOX59 Sports Overtime on Sunday night.
