Pacers' Paul George cleared to play in Game 3
Paul George suffered a concussion in Game 2, and has since cleared all the necessary benchmarks to compete.
Indiana Pacers forward Paul George was cleared to resume normal basketball activity on Friday, the team announced. Under the NBA's concussion policy, there is protocol to be followed for a player to return to action, and George remained symptom-free after each step.
George suffered a concussion when he took a knee to the head from the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday. He is expected to play in Saturday's Game 3, which begins at 8:30 p.m. ET.
This is obviously a great news for Indiana. It's hard to imagine the Pacers overcoming George's absence against a team like Miami for any period of time.
