Paul George 100 percent healthy following elbow tear

- by

Frank also said that Paul George’s torn UCL in his right elbow is completely healed. George missed three months because of the injury last season before returning for five games late in the regular season. He played in the Clippers’ first play-in game but missed the second and last play-in game because of health and safety protocols. “His elbow is 100 percent healthy,” Frank said. “Paul has had an extremely purposeful, driven, and very productive off-season, in that his consistency of training has been off the charts. Plus, he continues to take more and more of an ownership and leadership role. You know, he had a lot to do with getting John Wall to come here.”

Paul George said that John Wall has looked “amazing” during off-season workouts and believes he’ll give them something the Clippers have lacked — a speedy, dynamic transition threat.

Lawrence Frank made what is likely his only media appearance between the draft and the trade deadline this morning.
Here’s a breakdown of what he said about Kawhi Leonard’s progress, Paul George’s leadership, and the approach of LAC.

More on this storyline

“He continues to take more and more of an ownership and leadership role,” Frank said of George. “He had a lot to do with getting John Wall to come here… our players had player-led retreats. Paul was huge, him and Kawhi, behind that. The investment he’s made both in the gym, in the weight room, his body looks great. Just the urgency that he’s approaching it as one of the leaders and franchise players, you see a lot of growth and development, and just an intensity of his training. I think he’s had an extremely productive offseason.” -via The Athletic / September 22, 2022
It has been 454 days since we last saw Kawhi Leonard in an NBA game. Paul George was only healthy enough to play 31 of 82 games himself last season. It’s thus a leap of faith to vault the Clippers straight back into the league’s upper echelon, but we’re good with making that leap (for now). Further influences include Tyronn Lue’s status as one of the league’s best (and still somehow underrated) coaches and another potential boost: Ongoing murmurs we’ve been hearing about newly signed John Wall looking good during his summer workouts.  -via marcstein.substack.com / September 11, 2022
It was Ronnie 2K himself that revealed that PG is currently the NBA 2K king. In a recent interview with ClutchPoints’ Tomer Azarly, Ronnie explained exactly why this is the case: “I would say it’s not Devin, but I haven’t seen Devin against who I think is the best 2K player,” he said. “I think Paul George is the best 2K player.” -via Clutch Points / September 10, 2022
