Paul George Practices in Full

Paul George Practices in Full

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- After missing close to seven months due to a broken leg, Pacers forward Paul George participated in and finished his first full practice Thursday.Originally George was supposed to miss the season, but he recently came out saying that he could be ready for game-action by mid-March. The 24-year-old George said on Thursday that he needs to improve his conditioning and move better than he did during practice to get back to his All-Star form.Despite the positive results of Thursday, there's still no timetable for George's return."Paul is not going to be out there unless he's Paul George," Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said. "He's eager to get back on the court, but not before he's ready. Once he's mentally cleared to play in a game, he's still got to be ready to (actually) play in a game."George is a big reason why the Pacers made the Eastern Conference finals the past two seasons. He averaged 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.9 steals per game last season.The Pacers (23-34) are currently one game behind Brooklyn for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson has yet to live up to expectations after the team made him their big free agent acquisition over the summer, and his head coach Steve Clifford has admitted as much.

The Hornets signed Stephenson away from the Indiana Pacers after agreeing on a three-year deal worth $27 million. They thought they'd be getting a dynamic guard coming into his prime.

"To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years."

So far this season, Stephenson is averaging 9.7 points on .368% shooting, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

Clifford decided to sit Stephenson the entire fourth quarter during the team's loss to Portland Trail Blazers for the second consecutive game.

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Celtics guard Marcus Smart was carted off the court Friday night after injuring his left ankle in the fourth quarter of Boston's 101-98 win over Indiana.

The rookie appeared to step on the Pacers Lavoy Allen and immediately went to the floor, clutching his left ankle. Team doctors rushed to his side before calling for a stretcher. His leg was immobilized and he was carted off the court, giving a thumbs up as he departed.

"It was really scary and then, obviously, he was writhing in pain, so that makes it even more scary," coach Brad Stevens said. "We're hoping it's a sprain, but we don't know that. So obviously a great deal of concern for him, No. 1. And hopefully he can get back sooner rather than later because he's really playing great basketball."

Smart was the 6th overall pick by the Celtics in this year's NBA draft and was averaging 7.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in the first four games of the season. Five players scored in double figures for Boston who improved to 2-3 while the Pacers dropped to 1-5 on the young season.

Pacers’ George Takes Jump Shots at Practice

Pacers’ George Takes Jump Shots at Practice

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Less than three months ago, Paul George was being carried off the floor from a intersquad scrimmage with Team USA with a broken leg. On Monday, the Indiana Pacers forward was seen shooting jump shots with his teammates at practice.

Video surfaced from Pacers practice that showed George taking midrange jumpers as well as shooting some three-pointers in the gym following practice. The small forward suffered a grisly compound fracture in his right leg on Aug. 1 during a televised scrimmage with Team USA before the FIBA World Cup.

The 24-year-old has been cleared to put weight on his leg and begin upper-body workouts. George also proclaimed recently that he plans to play at some point during the upcoming NBA season.

A two-time All-Star, George has not missed more than three games in a season since the 2011-12 campaign. Last year he helped lead the Pacers back to the Eastern Conference Finals, averaging 21.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

Paul George Doesn’t Blame Team USA

Paul George Doesn’t Blame Team USA

NBA via Indiana Pacers(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Pacers All-Star Paul George spoke for the first time since breaking his leg during a Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas on Friday.

George wasn't putting any of the blame on Team USA for his "freak accident" and even said that he wanted to play on the 2016 Olympic team.

"Freak accidents happen," George said. "USA Basketball doesn't deserve any criticism from this."

George said he plans on being a leader on the bench for the rest of his teammates while he recovers.

"I plan on making a full recovery coming back from this," George said at a news conference. "I'm taking this in a positive way. I get to sit back and watch the game -- and just learn."

George and the Pacers haven't set a date for his return, but the All-Star wants to fully recover before he gets back on the court to avoid any other injury.

"I feel guilty about not being there for the start of (the) season," he said. "To not be a part of that, it hurts. Something I have to live with.

"The last thing I will do is feel like I am not a part of this team because I'm out."
