George was initially listed as ‘questionable’ for the game, however, he was ruled out of the action shortly before tip-off.
Prior to tonight’s game, George had played in all but one of the Clippers’ games this season. Here’s everything we know about his injury and when he may return to the court.

At this stage, George is considered day-to-day with the injury and is set to be re-evaluated in the coming days, according to The Athletic.
