Indiana Pacers star Paul George has been cleared to face the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night, the team announced.

George suffered a concussion in Game 2 earlier this week.

He will participate in the team's shootaround Saturday morning and barring any complications, will be in the lineup against the Heat. The series is tied 1-1.

"Under the care of the Indiana Pacers' medical staff, Paul George has spent the past three days engaged in the NBA's Return-to-Participation Exertion Protocol as part of the NBA's Concussion Policy," the Pacers said in a statement. "George remained symptom free after each step of the process. The Pacers staff consulted with Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the NBA's Director of Concussion Management, throughout George's progress through the protocol and Friday cleared him to return to normal basketball activity."

Honestly with as much time between games I never thought this was going to be an issue. But here is confirmation that it isn't going to be. He will play tomorrow night long as no other complications show up.

Ask 'Dade County' what he thinks of this: "Oh, the drama! The deception! ... Such blatant 'entertainment'. Rigged".

And if the pacers lose the series, they can use the "Paul George had a concussion" excuse. :rolleyes:

Well, we know that a lot of NBA fans love to look for excuses when it comes towards a Heat win. I can't believe people think that the refs helped Ray Allen hit a game tying three on the Spurs last year.

How did the Heat fans already manage to derail this thread? :confused:

Anyways, good for George, now hopefully he doesn't play like a bum like he did in game 2.

I was looking forward to the Roy Hibbert is a trash can excuse, but lately, he isn't that much of one.

The Heat have no worries as long as D Wade keeps being the best player on the floor....

I don't think anyone will make excuses for them seeing as how they've become the underdog in this series by playing like trash the last few months.
