Paul George (ankle) will practice this weekend and said that he has been healthy enough to play in games, despite being rested.
Players will be more optimistic than trainers, coaches and management and at least one prior report suggested his injury wouldn’t heal if he kept playing. Hence, he’s not playing. This is good to know in the sense that the injury is less serious rather than more serious but hopefully he gets the necessary rest to keep the injury from lingering.
