George Questionable for Game 3
The Indiana Pacers have held Paul George out of contact drills today due to his concussion. Game 3 is pivotal as the series with the Miami Heat is tied 1 game apiece. George's status is still very uncertain for game 3. The good news for the Pacers' is that they have had off since yesterday and do not play again until Saturday. George collided with the Heat's Dwayne Wade and "blacked out" according to reporters. George returned to the court after the collision but didn't tell the team docs the extent of his injury.
George practiced with the team today, taking shots and dunking, but remained limited. George had made more of an impact that just his normal box score stats will show. This postseason while on the court, George has helped his team to a +24 point swing. George was one of the primary reasons for a game 1 Pacers victory, so it's vital for him to be on the court and healthy come Saturday for game 3.
