The 24-year-old Indiana Pacers star has already undergone surgery on his broken leg, and doctors in Las Vegas said George was resting comfortably Saturday morning. Dr. James Gladstone, an orthopedic surgeon who is not treating George, called that a good sign.
Analysis: In a statement, Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said the team would not establish a time table for George's return to the court, though he said the Pacers hoped George would return to Indy next week. Gladstone said athletes with this type of injury normally take nine to 12 months to recover, though another doctor said it could take George up to 18 months to completely regain his form.

Analysis: Coach Frank Vogel told reporters at the Pacers' shootaround that none of his top five had worked out and they would all sit out the game. He says it's a chance for George, David West, Roy Hibbert, George Hill and Lance Stephenson to get some minor injuries healed, and for the bench players to get back on track by playing extended minutes.
|Apr. 2 8:08 PM PT9:08 PM MT10:08 PM CT11:08 PM ET3:08 GMT11:08 8:08 PM MST10:08 PM EST7:08 UAE (+1)05:0823:08 ET10:08 PM CT2:08 - George had his highest-scoring game in more than two weeks on Wednesday, finishing with 27 points in the team's win over Detroit.

Analysis: George finished with 10 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists for his second career triple-double. His jumper is currently broke - he's made 11 of his last 44 shots - so you need his passing and rebounding to compensate for his scoring woes.

Analysis: George missed nine of 11 3-point shots as his long range efforts were bricks clanging off the rim. He's too good a player for that to continue.
