Lue: George's knee sprain 'best-case scenario'

11:02 PM ET

LOS ANGELES — LA Clippers star Paul George avoided torn ligaments in his sprained right knee and is not expected to require surgery.

While George will miss the remainder of the regular season and will not be reassessed for two to three weeks, the Clippers breathed a sigh of relief that he did not suffer a more significant injury when he landed awkwardly after colliding knee to knee with Oklahoma City’s Lu Dort in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s 101-100 loss to the Thunder.

“He’s a little disappointed, as expected,” coach Ty Lue said before the Clippers routed the Thunder 127-105 in a rematch Thursday night. “But I think we got the best case scenario as far as what we thought it could be. And so, being reevaluated in two, three weeks is something that we are looking forward to.”
