INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Paul George hopes to make it back on the court next season despite the ''freak accident'' that caused a compound fracture in his right leg.
On Friday, the two-time All-Star responded to questions for the first time since the gruesome image of him colliding with a basketball stanchion.
George says the leg broke in two spots and that a rod was inserted during surgery Aug. 2. Doctors placed pins in the knee and ankle to hold the rod in place. The leg is now protected by a hard cast.
Coach Frank Vogel and Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said Tuesday that George has not been ruled out for the season though they didn't expect to have him.
George has been told he will make a full recovery.
