Larry Bird Expects Paul George to Return Soon

Larry Bird recently expounded on the possibility of Paul George returning to the Indiana Pacers’ lineup this season.

“It was a rough go at the beginning, which we knew it was going to be. He (isn’t) going to be Paul George, 100 percent. We know that. But I think mentally he wants to get out there, play a few games and get ready to see what he needs to do this summer to get back to 100 percent — and he will.”

“I expect him to play this year. I hope he does for his own good — not for us to get in the playoffs or anything like that, but just for his own mental state. I think anytime you go through an injury like that, you have to get back out there and prove yourself. But he’s not going to be 100 percent.”

The latest reports are now suggesting we may see George back on the court a soon as this week.
