Paul George (shoulders) expects to make Clippers debut in November

Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George (shoulders) expects to make his season debut in November.

What It Means:

George is recovering from dual offseason shoulder surgeries. "As of now, I'll be out of October fully, but who knows?," George asked rhetorically. "We'll see. In the November range is our target date." That means he will miss at least the Clippers' first six games. There's also a possibility of routine maintenance days throughout the season as the team goes all-in on a championship run. George's absence should create some additional early-season value for Rodney McGruder, Landry Shamet, and Moe Harkless.

numberFire's models expect PG-13 to average 25.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 3.3 3-pointers per game this season.
