Indiana Pacers forward Paul George was seen putting up shots after a team practice on Monday.
George, who suffered a compound tibia-fibula fracture during a Team USA intrasquad scrimmage in August, underwent surgery and is expected to miss the 2014-15 season, but he said at the team's media day earlier this month he hopes he can play at some point this season.
George also said he will probably travel with the Pacers on road trips later in the season.
The 24-year-old averaged 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Pacers last season, earning All-Defensive team and All-NBA third team honors and his second All-Star appearance.
The Pacers went 56-26 and earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last season before falling to the Miami Heat in the Conference finals. This offseason, Indiana lost guards Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson but added guards C.J. Miles and Rodney Stuckey.
