INDIANA PACERS VIDEOS

Inside a quiet Pacers' locker room where the only sound was the water pressure from the showers, George spoke in a low voice. He tried to highlight the positives after enduring this latest setback, but judging from his somber tone, George had a tough time searching for the silver lining. "Just came off a screen and felt a pop, but they looked at it and it's nothing more than just a calf strain," George said, slowly. "It wasn't a knee injury but it's tough, you work so hard in rehab and have something else pop up. The good thing is, I know we've got a long summer and a lot to look forward to." Indianapolis Star

The Indiana Pacers got a scare Wednesday night when forward Paul George had to be carried off the court by teammates midway through the fourth quarter of their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Pacers said he had a sore left calf. "Nothing serious," coach Frank Vogel said. "He got kicked pretty strongly in his calf, and it caused a calf strain." ESPN.com

Now, George waits to find out the extent of his calf strain. However, George has already accepted that he soon must take on a new road to complete recovery. "It's motivation just to get back to who I was but I'm going to be smart about it," George said. "I don't know whether it was overcompensating being on the left or what but I'm motivated to make sure that this right leg is strong as my left, so nothing like this pops up again. It is frustrating but the good thing is I have a whole summer ahead of me and a lot to look forward to working out." Indianapolis Star

The Indiana Pacers will wear their iconic Flo-Jo jerseys once again for Wednesday’s nationally-televised game at Memphis, the final game of the regular season. The Pacers have received approval from the NBA to wear their throwback uniforms for Wednesday’s game, which will be televised locally on FOX Sports Indiana and nationally on ESPN. Indiana can clinch a playoff berth for the fifth straight year with a win over the Grizzlies. A longtime fan favorite, the Pacers originally wore the Flo-Jo jerseys, designed by USA Track and Field star Florence Griffith-Joyner, for seven seasons from 1990-1997; which coincided with the first major steps of success of the franchise during its NBA Years. During that time, the Pacers made six appearances in the playoffs and two Eastern Conference Finals appearances. NBA.com
