The Indiana Pacers expect Paul George to make a full recovery from his gruesome leg injury — they're just not planning on having him in the lineup next season.
Yes, a full recovery is expected. But let's remember once upon a time when a team known as the Portland Trail Blazers drafted a man out of the University of Kentucky named Sam Bowie who ended up breaking his left leg and then followed it up with a broken right leg the following year. Neither of those breaks looked half as disgusting as what happened to George. Did Bowie make a full recovery? Yes he did. Was he ever really useful on the court afterwards? No, not really.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Odubel Herrera will bat leadoff for the Phillies on Sunday.
The Phillies like his bat, which is why they made him a Rule 5 pick from Texas. He figures to play all three outfield positions as well as second base this spring. He will likely be a bench player out of camp if he can hit this spring. He did show some power development in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it remains to be seen if that is something that moves forward for him or not. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
