After being listed as questionable, LA Clippers star Paul George will not play on Monday night vs. the Utah Jazz. George was initially questionable with knee soreness, but has now been ruled out with a right hamstring tendon strain. This change in injury is certainly confusing, and leaves more questions about a potential timetable for George.

When he initially left the game with knee soreness, George seemed to be in good spirits on the bench, and was heard after the game telling chairman Steve Ballmer that he was all good, despite a little soreness. All signs pointed towards George and the Clippers being overly cautious with his knee, but it now seems as if the initial knee injury was actually something different. Whether or not this turns into an extended absence is something that is not currently known.

George being ruled out several hours before game time suggests that the injury may be a little more bothersome to the star forward than initially anticipated. Hopefully it is nothing too major for George, and he can join the Clippers for their big game against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

Ty Lue will address the media shortly before game time, and should have somewhat of an update on what changed from George's initial injury status to what is now being called a right hamstring tendon strain.
