    Paul George (strained left hamstring) will not partake in Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    The Clippers continue to be limited in terms of healthy bodies as George will now miss his fifth straight game. That'll mean more touches heading Kawhi Lenoard and Lou Williams' way. PG13 will get all of the time he needs to rest up as the Clippers remain in a secure place in the standings out West. The fact that he is getting ruled out a day in advance could indicate a return is not imminent.

    Paul George will not play against the Magic on Thursday as he continues to recover from a strained left hamstring.

    This marks George's fourth consecutive missed game and his 15th missed game of the season. George's next opportunity to return will come on Sunday against the Pelicans. Although George has been producing first-round per-game value, he loses four or five rounds of value when accounting for missed games. With George ruled out, the team will continue to lean more on Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrel while JaMychal Green and Maurice Harkless could see additional minutes

    Paul George (left hamstring strain) will miss Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

    George will miss his third straight game with this injury. There hasn't been one specific player that has benefited the most from his absence. His minutes and shots have been spread out, but Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell are two that are likely to see some extra shots.

    Paul George (left hamstring strain) will miss Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.

    This report was expected given the fact that George had not traveled with the team, but it's disappointing to see the Clippers' star miss a marquee matchup against one of the best teams in the conference. That said, it's good for George's long-term outlook that the team is choosing to be cautious with his hamstring injury, as those types of soft tissue injuries tend to linger and are always liable to re-injury. No need to worry about PG13, but this may not be the last game he misses, so plan accordingly.

    Paul George (left hamstring strain) is not traveling with the team, guaranteeing he will miss a couple of games at least.

    With PG13 out, expect Kawhi Leonard, Montrezl Harrell to pick up the slack. His injury is not a major one, so owners will just have to gut it out for a while.

    Paul George (left hamstring) will not play on Friday against the Warriors.

    George missed one game with this injury but returned to drop 32 points on the Knicks on Sunday. This seems like a precautionary absence, but GMs will want to keep a close eye on George in case it turns into something more serious. Look for Landry Shamet to pick up the slack for as long as George is out.

    Despite fouling out in 26 minutes against the Knicks, Paul George still guided the Clippers to a 135-132 victory, providing 32 points, four rebounds, three assists, five 3-pointers and two steals.

    George shot great in this game, going 9-of-14 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line, and must've been frustrated between his six fouls and seven turnovers over 26 minutes. It is a shame he couldn't get more run with Kawhi Leonard sitting this game out, but it was a solid night at the office for PG13.

    Paul George (left hamstring tightness) will play vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

    This is great news for George's fantasy owners and it'll be good to have him back after missing Saturday's game. They'll be without Kawhi Leonard tonight so that means George will be in for all he can handle and should be fired up in all lineups.

    Paul George (left hamstring tightness) is being considered questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Kawhi Leonard is already sitting this one out but George missed Saturday night's game so that's why he has a chance to play. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but if he doesn't suit up tonight expect for Moe Harkless, Rodney McGruder and JaMychal Green to get some extra run.

    Paul George (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Saturday but head coach Doc Rivers said that he might play against the Knicks on Sunday.

    Luckily this does not seem to be a long term issue for George who is averaging top-20 numbers this season, a decent-sized decrease from his top-5 numbers last season. Rodney McGruder started the second half for George on Thursday while Moe Harkless and JaMychal Green may also see extended minutes after both putting up strong lines in that game.

    Paul George is doubtful for Saturday's game due to left hamstring tightness.

    PG13's potential absence could open things up for Rodney McGruder and Maurice Harkless. It will also allow for more touches to be shared between Kawhi Leonard, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams.

    Paul George (left hamstring tightness) was unable to return to Thursday's win over the Pistons.

    George was initially questionable to return but the Clippers put the game away comfortably in the second half, so there was no need to push it even if he was healthy. PG's night ended with 12 points, three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers. Now we wait for the updates.

    Paul George (left hamstring tightness) left Thursday's game shortly before halftime and is questionable to return.

    The Clippers have trended towards playing it safe with their players this season, but he may return given that it's currently a six-point game at the half. If George's night is done, he'll finish with 12 points, three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 16 minutes.

    Paul George scored 21 points on 6-of-25 shooting (3-of-14 3PTs) with 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals over 40 minutes in Tuesday's easy win over the Kings.

    George is trying to work through efficiency issues and he'll definitely do that, so buy into him if his current fantasy manager is bummin out about it. Kawhi Leonard added 24 points on 8-of-21 shooting with two boards, seven assists and two steals in the win.

    Paul George led the Clippers in scoring in their 117-122 loss to the Rockets on Thursday with 34 points on 12-of-23 shooting while adding nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and six 3-pointers.

    George capped off a 15-2 run in the fourth quarter with back-to-back triples to give the Clippers a lead after being down double-digits, but eventually they succumbed to the Rockets. He's been stellar for the Clippers, posting top-10 per-game numbers with averages of 24.7 points, 3.9 3s, 5.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.6 steals on .448 shooting. The shooting would be his most efficient since the 2016-2017 year on the Pacers. The shoulder surgery has done wonders so far.
