Pacers forward Paul George, diagnosed with a concussion after Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, did not practice but did shoot and dunk during Indy's workout Thursday, the Indianapolis Star reported.

George went through several steps of the of the NBA-mandated return-to-play protocol, the Star reported, and did not meet with reporters.

The Pacers may not know George's status for Saturday's Game 3 (8:30 p.m. ET) until hours before the game at Miami.

George was injured when hitting his head against Heat guard Dwyane Wade's knee during the fourth quarter of Miami's 87-83 victory, which evened the series at a game apiece.
