INDIANAPOLIS, IN (TheSpread) – The Indiana Pacers suffered a big blow to their season on Friday night as superstar Paul George suffered a horrific leg injury.

Taking part in an intrasquad scrimmage for the U.S. men’s national basketball team in Las Vegas, George suffered an open tibia and fibula fracture when attempting to block a shot. Upon landing from the shot, which was near the rim, George’s foot landed at the base of the basket stanchion and folded in.

The impact of the injury was immediately felt, as all players on both sides of the scrimmage were shaken up and the game didn’t continue from that point. There is no timetable for George’s return, but he will certainly miss the beginning of next season, if not all of it.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Pacers are currently listed with 18/1 odds to win the 2015 NBA Finals. Oddsmakers see Cleveland as the favorite, with 5/2 odds, while the San Antonio Spurs have 9/2 odds.
