Pacers Paul George Suffers Serious Injury

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports
Indiana Pacers small forward Paul George suffered a serious lower right leg fracture during the U.S. national team's intrasquad scrimmage on Friday. George underwent successful surgery later that night. Per ESPN:

In a statement released after surgery was completed, USA Basketball confirmed George suffered an open tibia-fibula fracture and is expected to remain hospitalized for about three days. Dr. Riley Williams, a Team USA orthopedist who also works with the Brooklyn Nets, was with George.

Sources close to the situation told ESPN that while there was no additional damage besides the fractures, doctors believe George likely will miss all of next season, though no official prognosis has been given.

George's leg landed and then buckled at the base of the basket stanchion after he fouled James Harden on a drive to the basket just 27 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Nearby teammates immediately reacted, with Harden doubling over as George recoiled on the baseline.

Medics, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski and members of George's family who were at the game rushed to his side.
George sent this message out on Twitter Friday night:
