Paul George Out For Preseason After Shoulder Surgeries

Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George will sit out the preseason as he recovers from two offseason surgeries on his shoulders.

George had right shoulder surgery in May to fix a partially torn tendon and a month later went under the knife to repair a partial tear of his left labrum.

George was then traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder in July for four unprotected first-round picks, one protected first-round pick and two pick swaps. Guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, forward Danilo Gallinari were also sent to OKC in the deal.

The six-time All-Star told ESPN he has "a little ways to go" before stepping on the court.
