George intimated Friday that his shoulders feel "great again," Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
George had both of his shoulders operated on before the season and cited that he felt "insecurities" during the year because they felt less than 100 percent. However, the extra time off during the season's hiatus has allowed George's shoulders to heal more.
George scored a game-high 31 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers.
Both teams leaned heavily on their stars, as only three Clippers scored in double digits but all three (George, Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell) delivered at least 20 points. George's 30 was his best performance since Jan. 5, and over his last dozen contests he's averaging 26.5 points, 5.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.3 steals over that stretch.
George racked up 13 points (5-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston.
George's scoring figures might have been disappointing, but the compensated a rough shooting night with a strong performance both on the boards and distributing the ball. George hasn't reached the 20-point mark in four of his last six games and seems to be trending in the wrong direction of late with averages of just 15.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game during that six-game stretch.
George registered 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers.
George has scored 24 in consecutive contests while combining for just 28 field-goal attempts. He had combined for only 33 points on 46 field-goal attempts across the four matchups immediately prior to these last two tilts, and George will look to stay hot heading into Tuesday's road bout versus the Thunder.
George compiled 24 points (9-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Friday's 1342-103 win over the Nuggets.
The Clippers entered this fight for second place with a fully-healthy lineup for only the seventh time this season, and the crowd inside the Staples Center were treated with a blowout game. Although George's court time was capped at 25 minutes, he led the team in scoring. Even though the team was injury-free Friday, George's health will continue to be a vital issue in the home stretch. As the playoffs approach, we may see both George and Leonard get a few days off, which is obviously bad news for seasonal players who own these elite targets.
George will be on a minutes limit Wednesday against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
George returned to action Monday after missing one game with a hamstring injury, though he was eased back, playing just 21 minutes and tallying seven points, four rebounds, four assists and a block.

George (hamstring) practiced Friday but it remains to be determined if he'll take the court Saturday against the Kings, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
George was able to get some time off to recover from his strained left hamstring during the All-Star break, and the fact that he was able to practice Friday is a good sign for a return in the near future. However, it's unclear if that return will be as soon as Saturday.
George (hamstring) collected four points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block in only 14 minutes before exiting Thursday's 141-133 double overtime loss versus the Celtics.
George strained his left hamstring and never returned to the game following halftime. The forward has missed multiple games due to hamstring and shoulder injuries this season and the team is hoping this was a minor strain. Luckily, the All-Star break begins following this loss and the Clippers don't have another game until next Saturday night versus the Kings. If George is unable to suit up, look for Marcus Morris and Lou Williams to gain some extra playing time and usage.

The double-double was his second in six games since he resumed a full workload following his hamstring injury, but it came with one of his worst shooting performances of the season. Over that six-game stretch, George is averaging 19.5 points, 7.8 boards, 5.2 assists, 2.7 threes and 1.2 steals.
George mustered 21 points (8-20 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists in 26 minutes during Saturday's 142-115 loss at Minnesota.
George delivered an impressive effort filling the stat sheet despite playing roughly four minutes less than his season average.

George contributed 23 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 128-111 win against the Heat.
George delivered his best performance in his last four games after missing most of January with a hamstring injury, and he has double-doubles in back-to-back games. He has the ability to contribute on both ends of the court on a nightly basis if healthy, and the recent signs are encouraging moving forward as long as he can remain on the court. He has scored 19 or more points in each of his last three outings.
George put up 19 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go with 12 boards and eight assists across 31 minutes Monday in the Clippers' 108-105 win over the Spurs.
After playing 19 and 25 minutes in his first two games back from a two-and-a-half-week absence due to a strained hamstring, George had his restriction bumped up again Monday. Assuming the prevailing pattern holds Wednesday versus Miami, George should be available for around 35 minutes, which more or less represents a normal workload for the 29-year-old. Aside from some slight inefficiency from the field and three-point range, George has otherwise delivered his typically well-rounded production on a per-minute basis in his first three games back in action.
George remains on a 20 minutes per game limit, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
While owners will be happy that George is back in the rotation after a nine-game absence due to a hamstring issue, he'll have reduced value until his minute restriction is lifted. For the time being, there are likely better options for DFS plays.
