Paul George Leaves Game With Right Leg Injury
Paul George left the Los Angeles Clippers’ 101-100 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the fourth quarter due to a right leg injury.
George suffered the injury when his knee appeared to collide with Lu Dort’s knee in mid-air. George then awkwardly landed and stayed on the ground.
Ty Lue said that George was still being evaluated after the game.
George left the arena with his leg extended on the back of a cart.

Jaylen Brown Noncommittal On Future With Celtics
Jaylen Brown is noncommittal on his future with the Boston Celtics as he is one year away from free agency. Brown is unlikely to sign an extension with the Celtics because he would make considerably more money as a free agent. The situation could change if he makes an All-NBA team this year and is offered a supermax.
“I don’t know. As long as I’m needed. It’s not up to me,” Brown told The Ringer. “We’ll see how they feel about me over time and I feel about them over time. Hopefully, whatever it is, it makes sense. But I will stay where I’m wanted. I will stay where I’m needed and treated correct.”
When asked how long he wants to play with Tatum, Brown keeps his focus on the immediate future.
“I just enjoy the time that you have now,” he says. “If it’s your whole career, it’s your whole career. If it’s not, it’s not. Some of the greatest players of all time haven’t finished with their organization. Michael Jordan retired a Wizard. As much as we like it here and enjoy being here, you see where life takes you. You see how the process goes. All you do is really focus on what’s in front of you right now, to be honest. But I don’t really know or want to answer that question because that type of stuff makes Celtics fans speculate and go crazy. Especially right now, I’ll just say we’ll get there when we get there.”
Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns Could Return As Soon As Wednesday
The Minnesota Timberwolves are battling for seeding in the Western Conference. Now, the Wolves might have some reinforcements arriving soon. Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns could both return from injuries as soon as Minnesota’s game on Wednesday against the Atlanta Hawks.
Edwards has missed the Timberwolves last two games, after suffering a sprained right ankle against the Chicago Bulls last Friday. Those were the first two games Edwards has missed this season. Minnesota fell at the Toronto Raptors on Saturday without Edwards, but bounced back to win at the New York Knicks on Monday.
Towns has been out since late-November with a Grade 3 tear in his right calf. Towns recently said he suffered a “major setback” in late-January, but that he’s close to returning now.
Minnesota is one game under .500 and in a seven-way fight for postseason seeds in the Western Conference. That seven-team mix is all within two games of each other in sixth to 12th place in the West.
Karl-Anthony Towns Suffered ‘Major Setback’ In Injury Recovery in January
Karl-Anthony Towns hasn’t played in a game since late-November but is finally closing in on a return game action. For Towns, that return can’t come soon enough, after going through a rehab he says he “hated every moment of”.
“I feel good there is a day (coming),” Towns said. “There’s a time. I’ve been in the darkness of the tunnel and trying to figure out where I’m going. It’s good to know that there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.”
Towns suffered a Grade 3 tear of his right calf in the Wolves loss at the Washington Wizards on November 28th. Towns said his calf was 95% torn and that speculation of a four-to-six-week return was always way off.
The Timberwolves All-Star big man also said that he suffered a “major setback” in January during his recovery.
“It was obvious. You have a boot one day, then you’re out of a boot and now you’re back in a boot. That’s a setback,” he said, declining to say what specifically happened. “I think there will be a time and place to talk about that. But not right now.”
