Paul George misses Celtics-Clippers showdown with sore right foot

Clippers coach Ty Lue said he didn't know how George suffered the injury or how long he could be out.

Paul George was added to the injury report on Friday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paul George did not play for the LA Clippers against the Boston Celtics on Friday night because of a sore right foot.

Coach Tyronn Lue said he didn’t have any details about George’s condition.

“I’m not really sure when he really started feeling it,” Lue said.

George hit 8 of 9 3-pointers and scored 36 points in a 121-99 victory at Cleveland on Wednesday night to close out a six-game trip. He leads the NBA in 3-point shooting at 47.8%.

“He did have a helluva game, so just hoping we can get him back soon,” Lue said.

George is averaging 24.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists.

George and Kawhi Leonard missed the first two games of the recent trip because of COVID-19 protocols.
