Paul George put up 31 points (9-for-16 FG), six rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in Sunday's 103-112 loss to the Lakers.
George and Kawhi Leonard held up their ends of the bargain but none of the other Clippers bothered to show up, with Reggie Jackson's eight points representing the team-high among the non-superstars. PH has been pretty solid since returning to the lineup and fantasy GMs just have to hope that he can stay healthy and keep the elite fantasy lines flowing through the end of the season.

Paul George struggled on offense again on Thursday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting to go with nine rebounds and seven dimes.
George was great defensively and still hasn't had a solid offensive game with every member of the rotation healthy. He missed all five of his 3-point attempts tonight, but was still a big influence on how this game shaped up. He's going to get it going on offense soon.

Not counting the 2014-15 season when he returned from injury to play only six games, Paul George is averaging his fewest points per game in six seasons, adapting to playing alongside Kawhi Leonard and battling numerous injuries.
“It's been a tough year being injured,” George said after the Clippers' dominant win over the Thunder on Tuesday. "Being in the rotation, being out of the rotation. And then just playing in a whole new system, new players, new teammates, new coaches, new playing style. So it's been a bit of an adjustment for me." PG has looked good recently as the Clippers continue to monitor his minutes and the expectation is that he will be back to his old self come fantasy postseason.

Kawhi Leonard had a game-high 25 points on 9-of-20 shooting and added eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes in a 109-94 win over the Thunder on Tuesday.
Leonard continues to cruise with top-10 fantasy value. The Clippers have three more sets of back-to-back games this season, so Kawhi could easily play 18 out of 21 games and finish the season with a total of 66 games. That's a number that would have satisfied a number of Kawhi drafters on fantasy draft day. While this game wasn't too close, Paul George once again played somewhat low minutes, providing 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and three triples in 27 minutes.

Paul George is getting back on track, going for 24 points (8-of-13 FG), four rebounds, four 3-pointers and two steals against the Sixers on Sunday.
That's two straight strong performances from George. It's been a struggle for PG13 to find consistency due to his variety of injuries this season, but there is no reason he can't round back into his usual early-round form to close out the year. A hot George is a top-10 player, which may be too much to ask for at this point, but there is still plenty of upside to be found here.

Paul George looked more like his 100-percent healthy self in Friday's easy win over the Nuggets, notching 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting.
PG13 had the hot hand and led his team with 6-of-8 shooting from deep to complement his four rebounds and two assists. This has been his best performance since returning from his latest hamstring injury. Hopefully, it signals his improved recovery and that he's closer to being back to 100 percent – where he can pose as a top-10 fantasy threat.

Paul George struggled from the field in his limited minutes on Wednesday, but still managed 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, one rebound, four assists and three steals.
George is still on a minutes limit which will hamper his production until he gets ramped back up. Patrick Beverley was also on a minutes restriction and scored 11 points with five rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes of action.

Paul George (left hamstring strain) and Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) will remain on a minutes limit on Wednesday vs. the Suns.
George struggled in his return from injury on Monday, shooting 3-of-11 from the field with seven points, four rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes. George will ramp up slowly, but he should be at full strength in time for the fantasy playoffs in most formats. He is still a risk of resting games down the stretch. Beverley scored six points with three rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes on Monday and should be owned in standard leagues.

Paul George (left hamstring strain) returned to action on Monday but was limited to seven point on 3-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, one trey and one block in 21 minutes.
The Clippers won this game with ease, so there was no need to put a heavy burden on him. The 3-of-11 shooting was a downer, but PG13 should be able to ramp up his production as he works his way back to being 100 percent.

Paul George (left hamstring strain) is available to play for the Clippers on Monday.
The Clips have been on a losing skid, so PG13's return will be a much-welcomed sight, both for the team and his owners in fantasy. Slot him into your active lineups.

Paul George (left hamstring) has been listed as questionable for Monday's matchup against the Grizzlies.
George was able to practice on Friday so there is still some hope that he can return for Monday's game, but it is going to be slow-moving with George at this point. Generally speaking, the early-round potential is still a possibility as PG13 ramps up his activity levels to close out the season, but at this point, your confidence has to be shaken with all of George's injury concerns.

Paul George (left hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Kings.
The tumultuous season for George continues as he is hampered by another injury. The Clippers want to be sure everything is healed with his hamstring before they throw him back out there. This is obviously a fantasy owner's worst nightmare, but getting another manager to bite on a trade this late in the year seems bleak, given George's rocky track record this season.

Paul George (strained left hamstring) fully participated in Friday's practice for the Clippers.
Doc Rivers emphasized that the entire roster was healthy at practice for one of the first times on Friday. Getting Paul George healthy and in rhythm, as the season closes out will be a key point of focus for the rest of the season. Hopefully, PG13 is back without restrictions on Saturday but we're not out of the woods yet. It's been a challenging season and that is unlikely to change thanks to the All-Star break.

Paul George was limited to 15 minutes and missed the second half of Thursday's tough loss to the Celtics due to a strained left hamstring, scoring just four points on seven shots before his premature exit.
George has had a tough time staying healthy this season and it's just more reason to be nervous about guys coming into the year with injury issues. Also, it's another reason to keep Marcus Morris on the radar while George deals with nagging issues. Morris was forced into 42 minutes for his 10 points, eight boards, two blocks and two timely 3-pointers. We'll have to reassess George's status after the All-Star break.

Paul George has been ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game while he deals with a hamstring strain.
George will sit out the second half of this contest as he deals with this strained hamstring. It looks like a nagging injury for George and we'll see what this means for him going forward. He was really struggling again after a horrible dud on Tuesday, with just four points on seven shots. Luckily, the All-Star break should give him some much needed time off.
