An orthopedic surgeon said the strained calf muscle Pacers guard Paul George sustained on Wednesday is "just depressing."
"He'd had a long road after a very, very traumatic event -- and his injury was more traumatic than most," said Dr. Robert Klitzman. "Then you're back, life is good. Even a minor setback is just depressing. That's what it is. Just depressing."
George played six games this season after returning from the compound fracture of his tibia and fibula he sustained last August. The calf strain was in his left leg.
In 15.2 minutes per game, he averaged 8.8 points and 3.7 rebounds.
