Update on When The Clippers Can Expect Paul George Return


The Los Angeles Clippers have been playing without Paul George for nearly a month. Today, the news for Clippers fans didn't get much better, as the team has announced that they are extending George's "period of rest" for another few weeks to see how his elbow responds. 

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the torn ulnar collateral ligament in PG13's elbow, upon reevaluation this week, is going to take much longer than the initial 3-4 week period suggested. 

George last played on Dec. 22, but that was after missing five games earlier in the month after spraining his elbow on Dec. 6.  

Already missing Kawhi Leonard for the entire season, the Clippers have gone 5-8 without PG in the lineup over the past four weeks. They now sit at 22-23, in the Play-In mix in the Western Conference. 

Adding insult to injury, the Clippers now embark on an 8-game road trip. It's small wonder reports have surfaced that the Clips could be holding a fire sale
