This comes a few days after Murray and others reported that George has been making progress from the torn ligament in his right elbow and was getting up shots at practice over the weekend.

“It’s always good to have PG around, just for the young guys. just being around with positive energy,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue told reporters.

George was off to a fantastic start, averaging 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists, before he suffered a sprained elbow on Dec. 6. He rested for two weeks, then returned, but played in just two games before it was revealed on Christmas Day that he had suffered a torn UCL.

The Clippers, of course, have also been without star Kawhi Leonard, out with a torn ACL that was suffered during the playoffs. It has yet to be determined if either player will return this season. As of now, another MRI on George’s elbow has yet to be scheduled, Law reported.

Somehow, though, the Clippers have managed to stay in the playoff race anyway. They enter Tuesday night with a record of 34-32, good enough for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.
