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
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
