I dont think hes coming back too soon- my guess is that he wont be back before training camp. Team USa season is over.

He shoulda just let him go- its just exhibition

It was nasty but a broken leg is nowhere near as bad as a joint being blown out. Bones usually heal pretty fast and pretty well, usually to 100%. Joints are rarely the same ever again.

It's just a broken shin, or it looked like it. Shouldn't be a "lasting" injury. Whatever the issue is, it ought to be over once healed. I'm assuming a 6-8 month recovery, putting him back in time for the last stretch after the all star break.

Edit: I don't know. I feel like 6-8 months is "broken leg recover time" from my memory.

I'm not a doctor and I haven't seen the footage enough to know. But based on what I've seen it looks like the shin snapped. So I don't think it's as serious as a knee injury like Livingstons, but it will certainly take a good while to fully recover.

JLynn943
08-01-2014, 11:00 PM
If it is only snapped bones, he could probably fully recover and maybe even be back this year. I know Steven Stamkos of the nhl broke his tibia early last season and came back after 4 or 5 months, but obviously we don't yet know the extent of this injury or how it compares.

ldawg
08-01-2014, 11:01 PM
nawh dude no way he back this season. After his leg heal he got to regain confidence and he will have to strengthen his leg again. I say 2 years min. the mental part is going to be the hardest. If its a clean break he should clean up well but if the shattered man.

Thoughts go out to George. Hopefully it's nothing too serious. I've seen in many cases the ones that look bad are not typically as bad as the non-contact injuries. Even if he's out 4-6 months or whatever, there's still some time for him to get back in a groove if Indy can stay afloat.

Hopefully there are more accurate details tomorrow.

They do- ufc fighters and boxers are on a different level for conditioning. its basically non stop maximum intensity. Nba players can take breathers (so to speak) during the game.

the conditioning that fighters need to do to prepare for matches- is something else.

Anderson Silva is coming back to the UFC with a similar type of break. They insert titanium rods around the bone to hold it in place until the break fuses. The fused bone is actually stronger than it was prior to the break.

KINGOFSPORTS

I thought Silva was done for when his tibula and fibula snapped in half. I didnt see this injury but sounds like a similar thing. I have no plans to watch it.

I'm confident he will make a full recovery though. In the case of Silva they used a titanium rod to reconnect everything and hes about to start fighting again.

Bone breaks are less worrisome than something like an ACL tear.

I would guess 6 months and hes back on the court

Nope. No one ever returns from leg injuries, you clearly haven't been paying attention. There have been no advancements in medical science since 1900 at least. They will probably cut it off.

That's what this feels like. It's a freaking bone! It's not career threatening by any means, probably does miss the season though. But at his young age it shouldn't slow his career.

Unfortunate that the padded backstop was closer than normal.

this needs to be fixed. the hoop should be like a crane and the media should have to be farther from the basket. these new lanky fast players need more room to operate. an injury like this was so avoidable.

Wow that was terrible. Huge blow to the Pacers and the league. At this point, just have to hope for the best possible outcome whatever that may be. Hope he has a full recovery and is 100% himself when he returns.

the pacers can use this as an opportunity to get a high draft pick in 2015. I'd trade West for some young talent.

Silva was on crutches until about a 2 months ago, and his fight was in December. He's not fighting until the end of January, so 13 months. I doubt PG makes it back before the 2015 season.

NBA players sprint up and down the court for 48 minutes, 82 games a year. They have to be in amazing shape as well. It'll be like 6 months on crutches, 6 months rehab.

no...usually the 4-6 months thing is the amount it takes to heal and "recovery" of the injury. The leg will be pacted together by September very well, but he'll be at least until Nov-Dec in a boot/wheelchair/crutches. He'll be able to walk, but not basketball activities after that. Then the "4-6 month recovery period" ends, in which he's already walking around and doing things (just no big activities).

Look at mlb and tommy john surgery. 10 month recovery period. Players are already "throwing" at 6-7 months and pitching (weakly) at 8 months.

Career is OVER. That's Joe Theisman like. You don't comeback from that type of break. Definitely not in basketball.

We -could- get an injury exception and sign a player up to half his value (so, $7M). Won't happen though. We -should- chalk this year up as a loss and plan to lower payroll and collect assets for 2015. That won't happen, either. The Pacers are going to roll with the team they have, try to make the playoffs, and miss it by a hair. Bird is too loyal to West to move him, at this point.

Really dude? You compare a broken bone to an ACL. There is no comparison at all. First off, no two individuals are the same. Even with the same injury, you can't compare AP's recovery to Rose's recovery. There isn't many athlete's that are the physical specimen AP is to begin with. Early on in 2012 AP was good, but he still wasn't himself. From week 7 on he was on another level.

Brutal injury. Best wishes to PG and the Pacers fans. Wouldn't wish that on anyone, especially during a scrimmage.

As for recovery, it's really going to come down to the extent of the injury (compound vs clean) and whether there was serious collateral damage to the surrounding muscles and nerves. If there was no real damage to the tissue then recovery shouldn't be so bad... if there was soft tissue damage, it's anyone's guess how long it will take.

Here's to hoping he makes a full recovery.

I can see where your coming from, but these dudes are playing the game they love as jobs. In addition, they are playing for their country, which is a great honour.

True, but basketball and FIBA is nothing close to and never will be soccer and FIFA when the whole world is involved. Sure it has been great seeing the game expand globally so much over the years, but our guys are just so much better than the rest of the world, I don't really think there is THAT much pride when they don the stars n stripes and beat up on inferior competition. Soccer on the other hand, is a sport that is dominated by 3 continents and the amount of talented players and all the countries they represent, make it an extremely prideful feeling when they represent their nation every 4 years, plus it is a game that is unpredictable and one or two lucky bounces can mean win or lose, which is why every country believes they have a chance. In FIBA I'm sure these other teams know if they advance far enough, there is an *** whupping waiting from the US, which makes it far less entertaining.

It was nasty but a broken leg is nowhere near as bad as a joint being blown out. Bones usually heal pretty fast and pretty well, usually to 100%. Joints are rarely the same ever again.
Exactly. Its a horrible injury no doubt and extremely traumatizing but this is something he can come back from and will do it sooner than most people would expect. Not only that but once the nine completely heals it will actually be stronger (at the break area) than it was before. Anderson Silva broke his leg in a similar area and it was just as traumatic and he was back practicing in less than a year. I think he broke his leg in November and has been practicing for a couple months now.

Leg injuries are different in the game of basketball compared to other sports

Similarities: you can't condition with a broken leg, it leaves you susceptible to new injuries as soon as you start action again

Differences: you need to put pressure on your legs to take a jump shot & he will lose a step.

Paul George could have done the same thing in practice for Indiana.

But he didn't. He did it in a meaningless exhibition game. The team can live with it a hell of a lot better if he did it busting his butt for the team that pays his salary and depends on him to win games for them. This was a freaking scrimmage. The point of this game was strictly for ratings on ESPN.....nothing more. This is why I am not a fan of having professionals who are depended on by franchises play in games that amateurs should be playing in.

Its most probably the adrenaline he had at that time,trust me. I know people who have been ran over with a car and didn't feel a pinch. I commend him though for giving it 110% during that play, in a scrimmage.

Yea once I stepped out of a moving car. Tore the skin off my knees, ****ed up my ankles, but right after it happened I got right up and ran. Didn't feel **** for a couple minutes.

But what do these athletes do when they're not playing? The point is these guys are going to find ways to risk their careers either way so teams should just treat this like a gamble or risk because they're bettering themselves which 95% of the time will help the team. You can injure yourself in Summer league, Drew League, Training camp, playing other sports, or whatever it's not going to stop the athletes from attending these things.

this is why I hate 1 player making all that cash it cripple your team once they are injured.

So when a star player goes down, so it's their cap hit that cripples a team... not the fact that they can't play Got it.

You put pressure on your legs in other sports as well, football to jump and catch the ball or deflect the pass/block a punt, baseball when you jump to catch a flyball or line drive, etc. Sure, basketball a player jumps more than other sports but I don't think you can stretch it out that far and say that there's a "difference" really

The NBA and USA basketball are going to release a statement in about a half hour on Paul George surgery, a source said.

NBA deal w/FIBA states that its teams can't bar players from international comp unless there's "reasonable medical concern" going in. So ...

So that would suggest NBA teams won't be able to put up any more resistance to international play unless/until its deal with FIBA changes

Sorry if this was already posted somewhere. Here are some more detailed updates:

@CandaceDBuckner: #Pacers Paul George is currently undergoing surgery in Las Vegas, per USA Basketball spokesperson.

@CandaceDBuckner: Paul George suffered a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula. Will be in surgery for two hours, to get a pin placed in his leg.

@CandaceDBuckner: People are hopeful that PG's injury is a good kind, because it was a clean break. However, ancillary damage will be known after surgery

@CandaceDBuckner: No timetable on PG's injury but would safely assume that it will take him at least 6 months to get back moving. More time needed for play

@CandaceDBuckner: Paul George expected to be hospitalized 2-3 days in Las Vegas.

@CandaceDBuckner: Conflicting reports but several people I've talked to said that bone did in fact go through PG's skin.

They can put wording in the contracts saying if you hurt yourself doing A B or C- the team has right to void your contract. Players would be hesitant to do a lot of the other activities.

Done for a season and a half.

He's young, hopefully it's not career altering but the way it looked?

Pacers lose Lance to FA and now this.

SOOO much pressure on Hibbert now.

Larry Bird is pissed, They need to make run a Bledsoe now

How? This was a freak accident... Unless PG was a 74 year old man it is unlikely he suffers this type of break unless he hits the ground at a very specific angle.

Do you just not have any understanding of anatomy, physiology or physics? ... Or are you just r3tarded?

Im sorry is this a basketball forum or a science forum? Feel free to elaborate on the specifics, just do yourself the favor and avoid the personal insults. I always thought these type of injuries were dependent on bone density and frequency of contact.

He will probably still be in crutches. There is no way he comes back this season.

Seems like more of a pressure on a certain angle type thing and not a bone density issue

That could have been prevented. I understand it was a freak incident, but the stanchions were seemingly 2 feet closer than normal. The NBA should look into how some FIBA games/league play help protect players from the hazards of media proximity

Check this game out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW-_G1AJKx8

1)Look how far the stanchion is away from the court.
2)Notice how media is set behind the stanchions due to physical advertising barriers forcing them back

I don't think so. I've been checking out some games on youtube and it looks like a lot of games have the stanchions further back, and media seems to be off the court behind a barrier.

Check this video out, it shows multiple locations I think for FIBA games.

I agree with keeping the players hazardous free when playing. The media crew that sit on the baseline seem so damn annoying. I'm surprised nobody's been seriously hurt yet crashing into cameras and having to dive over them. That padding was damn too close too, but players should realize where they're jumping into also

Very odd injury,I'm sad for him. Hope he'll be playing already next year,but I doubt it.
