Indiana Pacers handed big boost ahead of game three with Miami Heat

Published Add your comment

The Indiana Pacers have been handed a massive injury boost ahead of game three against the Miami Heat after Paul George has passed the NBA's return to participation exertion protocol.

George has spent the past three days engaged in the protocol and now the Pacers are able to clear him to return to normal basketball activity.

After the Indiana medical staff consulted with Dr Jeffrey Kutcher - the NBA's director of concussion management they were able to make the announcement on Friday.

Earlier on Friday George had been described as symptom free giving Indiana fans confidence that he would be able to play in Saturday nights clash with the Heat.

George will now participate in Saturday's shoot around and unless anything out of the ordinary happens, should be set to start in the tomorrow's match.

It was during game two that George suffered the initial injury and blacked out on the Indiana bench before returning to the game.

The Eastern Conference finals series is tied 1-1 between the #1 and #2 seeds respectively with game three on Saturday night to be played in Miami.
