The Los Angeles Clippers will look to keep their six-game winning streak going when they host the New York Knicks Saturday evening. The Clippers appear to be starting to figure some things out after early struggles, although they’ll be hoping Paul George will be able to suit up for this contest. Here’s the latest on his status for the game.

Paul George injury updates

Update: George is available to play for the Clippers, which is excellent given his injury history and the potential scare of the team losing one of its top players in the midst of a winning streak. The forward might be on a minutes limit, but he’s set to return after missing just one contest.

George is officially listed as questionable for the contest as he continues to recover from a hip injury. The forward suffered the setback a few games ago, although it’s unclear exactly when the injury happened. He was ruled out for the rest of the contest and then didn’t suit up in the team’s subsequent game against the Warriors.

If George is unable to go, look for Kawhi Leonard and James Harden to take most of the shots in the offense. Leonard looks like his old self, averaging 23.5 points per game on 50/42/86 shooting splits, while Harden is putting up 16.6 points and 7.3 assists per game.
