George took part in practice without any restrictions on Saturday, something Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was thrilled to see. In fact, Rivers thinks the staff let George go “past probably where he needed to go.”

The Clips are reportedly planning for George to debut on the road against either the Houston Rockets on Nov. 13 or the New Orleans Pelicans the following night, resting on one end of that back-to-back.

INDIANAPOLIS — Paul George sat at the top of the first-base dugout in Victory Field. He waited for a throng of reporters to surround him. George , after two months of speculation about his future, knew the type of questions he would be asked Thursday night.

George underwent a pair of minor shoulder surgeries this summer, to repair his right rotator cuff and left labrum. He missed the entirety of the preseason with the Clippers and said at the team’s media day this fall that he was targeting a “November-ish” return.

Rivers said Saturday that he doesn’t have a specific date in mind for George — who averaged 28 points and 8.2 rebounds last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder — to make his debut in Los Angeles. They have four games on their slate this week, starting Monday against the Toronto Raptors and then again on Wednesday against the Rockets in Houston, all of which are on the table.

George himself, however, admits he’s not there just yet.

“I still got some stuff,” George said, via the Los Angeles Times. “From a health standpoint, I feel great. But I think with rhythm especially, with where these guys are at right now in their season, they’re flowing right now, so I just want to come in with an easy transition.”

If Paul George continues to hit clutch shots, the Clippers will be unstoppable .
Paul George hit a go-ahead shot with 25 seconds left in the fourth quarter to lift the Clippers to a 90-88 win over his former Oklahoma City Thunder team on Monday night. The shot wasn’t only significant because it came against the team he forced himself away from in a trade over the summer — it was the same shot he’d struggled with in previous years. George had never historically been considered clutch, and for good reason: Prior to the start of the 2018-19 season, he was 1-for-12 on go-ahead threes in the final 30 seconds of regulation or in overtime.
