Paul George made his long awaited debut on Thursday in the Clippers' 127-132 loss to the Pelicans., dropping 33 points on 10-of-17 shooting while chipping in nine rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers.
George looked great on the court and was doing it all. He's going to initiate a lot of the offense alongside Kawhi Leonard when they're healthy and should be plugged into all lineups. Last season he was a top-5 player with Russell Westbrook eating up usage, so there's no reason why he can't be a top-12 guy this year as well. The shoulder is safe for now and the minutes restriction and load management days are going to be an inconvenience, but it's a small price to pay for an elite fantasy asset like George.
