George sprained his elbow on December 6, missed two weeks and returned to play in just two games.

After playing against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, George felt pain in the elbow, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“Paul George suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow,” the Clippers aid in a statement. “George will rest and be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks, at which point next steps will be determined.”

FEATURED STORIES

George’s extended absence comes as the 17-15 Clippers are already missing injured Luke Kennard and Isaiah Hartenstein. COVID-19 concerns have also sidelined point guard Reggie Jackson and forward Marcus Morris Sr.

George was averaging 24.7points per game, his highest in three seasons, with 7.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists.
