The current list of sidelined NBA stars is sobering—Derrick Rose, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Paul George, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Steve Nash—but it is not the worst season on record. Not even close, according to Jeff Stotts, who tracks injury trends on his website, InStreetClothes.com. Stotts' data indicates that this season will, in fact, end up falling below the average for the last 10 seasons. Through the 60-game mark, NBA teams had lost 3,165 player-games to injury, putting the league on pace for 4,326 games lost this season. That's below the 10-year average of 4,577 and well short of last season's mark of 4,989 games lost. Bleacher Report

Things are suddenly setting up nicely for the Indiana Pacers after they had it rough for so long. But since nothing has come easily this season, they aren't counting on that changing now. "Honestly, we're not even thinking about Paul George right now," coach Frank Vogel said. "Hopefully he can make it back this year and get in some games, but how effective is he going to be having not played in a year? This is a serious injury. He still has a lot of hurdles to pass before he's even able to get back on the court. "So our whole approach has been that he's not going to play with us this year. Even right now, we're trying to become the best possible team we can without him and if he gets back, that's just going to be a bonus." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Then, there's the prospect of George's return, after the All-Star forward finished a full practice Thursday and continued to maintain that he's aiming for a mid-March return. "We're approaching it like we're not gonna get Paul back," coach Frank Vogel said. "And we've got to become as good a team as possible without Paul George. And if we're able to get him back, then it should give us a huge boost, obviously. But we're approaching it like he's not coming back." Bleacher Report
