Paul George Injury
Paul sustained an open (also called compound) fracture of both his tibia and his fibula, and had emergent surgery to fix this. An open fracture means the bones penetrated the skin, and were exposed to the outside air. This increases the risk of infection, compared to a closed fracture. His surgery included cleaning the leg wounds, and then his surgeon inserted a titanium rod into the tibia. The tibia is a very strong bone, but only the outside of the bone is strong; the inside of our bones, where the marrow is, is actually quite soft. Therefore, his surgeon made an incision just below the knee, made a small hole in the bone at the top of the tibia, and inserted a rod about the size of your little finger, the whole length of the tibia. To further stabilize the fracture, he probably also inserted additional screws above and below the break, right through the bone and the rod.

Paul George Position
Paul entered the league as a shooting guard but was later moved to the small forward position, with the emergence of Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson. Stephenson’s improvement as a facilitator and distributor in the backcourt allowed George to play off the ball more often during games.
Early in his career, he was unable to create shots for himself and lacked a great deal of ball handle, something he worked on with trainer Jerry Powell during the 2012 off-season. With All-Star swingman Danny Granger injured during the 2012–13 season, George took on a larger offensive responsibility, which resulted in the NBA Most Improved Player Award.
George has established himself as one of the best perimeter defenders in the NBA. In addition to his athleticism, he has developed a reputation as a high-flyer by participating in the 2012 and 2014 Slam Dunk Contest. Following the Pacers’ win over the Denver Nuggets on February 10, 2014, Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw, called George “the best two-way player in the game”. George’s rapid improvement led Pablo S. Torre of ESPN to dub him the NBA’s most anomalous superstar, while stating: “Has anyone in the NBA ever become better, faster than Paul George?”
