Thunder’s George ‘should be back’ Monday

Paul George signed a four-year contract to remain with the Thunder in July.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Paul George has missed the last two games due to a right calf contusion, but told reporters today he ‘should be back’ for Monday’s home game against the Charlotte Hornets.

George, speaking at his fundraiser for families affected by stroke, says his rehab has been going well.

George is averaging 20.7 points and 5.8 rebounds this season while shooting 41.6 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from three.

The Thunder lost to the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico City but beat the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night. OKC sits at 12-13 on the year.
