INDIANA PACERS VIDEOS

August 1, 2014 Updates

Indiana Pacers star Paul George suffered an apparent severe lower right leg injury Friday night during the Team USA intrasquad showcase game at UNLV's Thomas & Mack Center. George's leg landed and then buckled at the base of the basket stanchion after he fouled James Harden on a drive to the basket just 27 seconds into the fourth quarter. Teammates nearby immediately reacted with Harden doubling over as George recoiled on the baseline. Medics, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski and members of George's family who were at the game rushed to his side. ESPN.com

His right leg was put in an air cast and he was taken to a local hospital after being treated for about 15 minutes on the court. After he left in an ambulance, the rest of the game -- which pitted players in camp for the U.S. as it looks to trim its roster ahead of the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain that begins Aug. 30 -- was canceled.

When George came down, his leg hit the bottom of the stanchion and just snapped. It was somewhere between the Shaun Livingston and Kevin Ware injuries in how awful it was to watch. Best of luck to Paul George on a successful recovery. The Big Lead

"If we had the same mentality that we had to start the year off, we would have won the championship," George told Yahoo Sports. "We were playing the best ball of all of our careers and Pacers history in general. For us to not finish the year where we started is tough." Yahoo! Sports

“I started to trim up during the last month (of the season) and I started feeling better even though I didn’t play a lot so people couldn’t really see it,” he said. “During workouts and whatnot, I felt good and I decided to be a little more extreme, see what that feels like. And I feel good. I like the way my body is starting to look and I think there’s going to be a point where I might want to add more the right way throughout the summer.” Now he recently weighed in at 220 pounds. “This is about right,” Copeland said. “I might slim up a little bit more but I’m going to test this throughout the summer and I feel very light. I don’t know if that’s going to hurt me in the post so I’m trying to figure out what’s a good weight but I have some time to figure it out.” Vigilant Sports
