  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Giannis Antetokounmpo, Rudy Gobert and Paul George have been named the finalists for NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award.

    One could make a convincing argument for all three so it’s hard to call. That being said, this seems like Giannis’ year and we could see him racking up a few awards this season.

    According to Woj, among others, Paul George underwent right rotator cuff surgery and will minimally miss the start of training camp.

    In addition to the right shoulder surgery, George had a procedure done on his left labrum as well. Even though George insisted that his shoulder was fine, he never truly looked right towards the end of the season and in the playoff series with the Blazers. George will now get a late start to the offseason, and very well could extend further, though nothing so far suggests that he is in danger of missing the start of next season. Keep track of George's progress throughout the summer.

    Thunder GM Sam Presti said that Paul George would get his shoulder re-evaluated by a specialist over the summer.

    George insisted that he felt no pain in his shoulder and the issue didn't affect his game, but the results said differently. George's shot looked off, especially in the first few games against the Blazers. George will have a full offseason to get healthy and be ready to produce another top fantasy season.

    Paul George said that he wasn't in much pain during the playoffs but he will address his shoulder situation soon.

    Though he doesn't want it to be used as an excuse, George was clearly bothered by the shoulder through the end of the season and into the series with the Blazers. His shot wasn't the same and it showed in the first few games of the playoffs. George should be fully healthy entering next season and ready to be a to produce another top fantasy season.

    Paul George had a huge game with 36 points (14-of-20 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs), nine rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's 118-115 road loss to the Blazers.

    George was feeling it early, making his first five shots. He battled through first-half foul trouble and likely some lingering pain from his injury. But it wasn't quite enough as Damian Lillard out-played him in this one to end the series in Portland.

    Paul George is staying confident that his Thunder will come back from a 3-1 deficit saying, "I definitely think we're built for this. If there's a team that can be down 3-1 and come back from it, I think we're the team to do it."

    While it's great to hear the confidence from one of your superstar leaders, the Thunder need to shoot better if they want to mount a comeback. George looked better in Game 4, but outside of Game 3's home win, the Thunder have shot the ball poorly as a team all series long.

    Despite being slowed down by turnovers and foul trouble, Paul George still managed to light up the box score in Sunday's loss to the Blazers with 32 points on 8-of-21 shooting, 10 rebounds, six assists, four 3s, one steal and one block.

    George has been banged up as early as March and he's been such a trooper, powering through a bothersome shoulder to lead the Thunder in this first-round playoff series. Unfortunately, Damian Lillard and company have been far too much for OKC to handle and George's big nights have come and gone with a lack of ample support to properly contest for the win.

    Paul George labored through a 3-for-16 shooting night to score 22 points (14-for-17 from the free throw line), six assists, six rebounds and two threes on Friday.

    Friday's game marked the second time in three games that George has struggled with his shot, adding to the speculation that his right shoulder injury is holding him back. Fortunately for Oklahoma City, he stayed aggressive attacking the basket and was able to chip in 14 points from the charity stripe as well as his customary lockdown defense down the stretch.

    Paul George scored a team-high 27 points to go with his eight rebounds, three assists, two threes and one steal in the Thunder's 114-94 Game 2 loss to the Blazers.

    George also played a team-high 41 minutes in the defeat. His two triples led the team as they made just five threes for the second straight game. It would be hard for them to not fare better as they return to OKC for Game 3 on Friday.

    Coach Billy Donovan said that Paul George (right shoulder) is all good and totally cleared to play against the Blazers on Tuesday.

    This is in line with what George said earlier in the week, as he continues to not use the shoulder as an excuse. George will need to shoot much better than the 8-of-24 he shot in Game 1 if the Thunder want to take Game 2 on the road.

    Paul George (right shoulder) said that he's pain-free and that he's healthy enough that injuries aren't part of the explanation for any poor performances.

    That's a tough sell considering George had trouble even lifting his shoulder just a few days ago and went 8-for-24 in Game 1, but we respect him for refusing to use it as an excuse. While OKC appeared to be the popular pick over the Jusuf Nurkic-less Blazers, they're in trouble if George doesn't find his form. Expect a better game next time out from PG.

    Paul George fouled out in 43 minutes of play scoring 26 points on 8-for-24 shooting including 4-for-15 from deep in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Blazers.

    George added 10 boards and four steals, but he is clearly still feeling the effects of his shoulder injury. The Thunder will need more from him if they want to take this series.

    Paul George (right shoulder soreness) will play in Game 1 vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

    This is incredible news for the Thunder who get their leading scorer back. George went through his pre-game routine and the team decided that he was good to go. George should be all-systems go and ready to redeem himself after last year's first-round exit vs. the Jazz.

    Paul George (right shoulder soreness) is being listed as a game-time decision in Game 1 vs. the Trail Blazers on Sunday.

    Coach Billy Donovan said that George will go through his regular pre-game routine, see how he's feeling and then decide from there. PG13 led the Thunder in scoring this season and it will be an enormous blow if he can't play in this one. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.
