Team USA will be down one more man when they travel to Spain later this month.On Friday night, Team USA was hosting a Blue vs White scrimmage, open to the public, in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a chance to give the fans a chance to see some of the new faces in the NBA, on a big stage, representing the USA.
Unfortunately, the scrimmage concluded, prematurely, in the fourth quarter when the Indiana Pacers’ Paul George was attempting a “chase down” block, missed the block and flew into the basket stanchion where his right leg got caught, and the weight of his body collapsed on his ankle.
To me, it looked like he snapped his ankle similar to how Kevin Ware snapped his leg in 2013. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him out for the entire 2014-2015 season.
This injury just adds to the “issues” Team USA is facing.. No Kevin Love, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, or Kawhi Leonard, and now, no George.
Prayers with Paul and his family.
