Paul George Has Knee Surgery Faces 6-8 Week Recovery

"The Thunder, George, and his representation collectively determined for the procedure to be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache with Thunder personnel present at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, California".

George posted an image on his Instagram story prior to the surgery taking place on Wednesday with the caption "Good Spirits". Hours later, the Thunder confirmed the procedure was a successful knee scope.

George is coming off a superb first season in Oklahoma City, where he started 79 games and averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Whether or not the Thunder will see the benefits of this surgery, however, remains to be seen.

Oklahoma City forward Patrick Patterson had a knee scoped last August 10. He also missed a game earlier this season with left knee soreness.

George faced a number of nagging injuries in the 2017-18 season - including issues with his elbow, hip, and a pelvic strain.

George is heading into free agency this summer if he declines his $20.7 million player option, and it looks like he'll be back to basketball activities around the time free agency begins.
