Pacers’ Paul George suffers serious leg injury in scrimmage

01 Aug


Indiana Pacers guard/forward Paul George suffered a severe leg injury in a Team USA scrimmage Friday night. He pursued James Harden in transition defense, then landed awkwardly against the stanchion, at which point a replay from ESPN clearly showed his leg fracturing.

George was taken off the court in a stretcher to a standing ovation. After the injury, Coach Mike Krzyzewski led the players to mid-court and informed the crowd they were calling off the remainder of the scrimmage. ESPN reports that George was taken to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Las Vegas. ESPN also reported that the stanchion against which George suffered the injury was closer than the NBA-regulated space.
