Paul George hoping for November return from shoulder surgeries
The LA Clippers have a stacked roster, but they will not have their full superstar power when they begin the season.
Paul George, whom the team acquired in a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder this summer, underwent surgery on both of his shoulders over the offseason. During Clippers media day on Sunday, he said he was “far along” in his recovery and estimated to NBA TV that he was 85-90 percent recovered.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne also says George told her he is hoping to be back around November.
The return date for Paul George is a bit of a moving target. But he told me today he’s out all of training camp and hoping to be back “November-ish” catch the full interview in @SportsCenter later today.

George had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and rotator cuff for his right shoulder. George’s shoulder was so bad towards the end of the Thunder’s season that he could barely lift it. He still managed to be a finalist for both NBA MVP and Defensive Player of the Year.
