George limited to non-contact drills in practice even though Pacers see signs of recovery
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers kept Paul George out of contact drills Thursday because of a concussion.
It's still uncertain whether he will be cleared to play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Saturday in Miami. George was diagnosed with a concussion, less than 24 hours after he told reporters he had "blacked out" and had blurred vision following a collision with Miami's Dwyane Wade near the end of Game 2. The series is tied 1-1.
After practice, coach Frank Vogel reiterated George never described his injury to the doctors the same way he did to reporters. George returned to the game following a timeout.
At practice, George wore a red jersey, took shots and even dunked a ball before leaving the court. He did not take questions.
