LA Clippers’ Paul George to Begin Playoffs on Sideline Due to Knee Sprain: Impact on Team’s Postseason Prospects

The LA Clippers will enter the first round of the NBA playoffs against the Phoenix Suns without the services of their All-Star swingman, Paul George.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, George is expected to start the best-of-seven series on the sideline as he continues to recover from the right knee sprain he suffered in late March against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

During George’s absence, the Clippers managed a 6-3 record down the stretch, securing the No. 5 seed and avoiding the AT&T Play-In Tournament. However, George’s absence will be sorely felt as he averaged 23.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists, and 1.5 steals per game this season.

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue will have to rely on the rest of his squad to step up and fill the void left by George’s injury.
