LOS ANGELES — LA Clippers star Paul George left Tuesday night’s 101-100 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder late in the fourth quarter with an apparent right leg injury.
As George went up for a rebound, his right knee seemingly collided with Thunder guard Luguentz Dort‘s knee in the air. George landed awkwardly and crumpled immediately to the floor, staying there for several minutes.
When George got up, he needed help to walk back to the locker room with 4:38 remaining in the game. Clippers coach Ty Lue said in his postgame news conference that George was still being evaluated and that he hadn’t yet spoken with him.
Lue said he didn’t know what exactly occurred on the play when George was injured until an assistant coach showed him the replay.
George was seen leaving the arena on the back of a cart with his right leg extended. He nodded to reporters on his way out.
Any serious injury to George would be a devastating blow for the Clippers, who entered Tuesday’s contest having won five of six games.
Earlier in the third quarter, George threw down a spectacular 360-degree spinning baseline dunk. He had 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists before exiting.
