The Indiana Pacers have announced that guard Paul George has passed each step of the NBA's concussion protocol, and will participate in the team's Saturday shootaround, and start the team's Eastern Conference finals game that night "barring any unforeseen complications."

George suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of the Pacers 87-83 loss to the Miami Heat on Tuesday, and coach Frank Vogel later told reporters he had "no clue" whether  George would play in Game 3.

It was reported earlier Friday by Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski that the team had "increasing confidence" that the All-Star would be able to play on Saturday.
