Description: Indiana forward Paul George (rest) will not play in Wednesday's regular season finale, according to Scott Agness of pacers.com.
Insight: He'll join David West, Lance Stephenson and C.J. Watson on the bench. The 23-year-old George will finish with averages of 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.3 threes, but he only shot 37.7 percent from the field and averaged 19.6 ppg in his final 38 contests. He averaged 23.6 ppg on .464 shooting his first 42 games and was an early MVP candidate.

Insight: As bad as the Pacers have played lately, they should be able to handle Milwaukee without George's help. None of the Pacers' five starters were at practice on Tuesday.

Description: Pacers star Paul George blames last night's poor performance on a stiff back. SOURCE: Indianapolis Star
Insight: George had the worst shooting night of his career on Wednesday, missing all nine of his attempts in a 22-point loss to Charlotte. Despite the injury, George fully expects to play Friday against the Rockets.
 
Cold3/5/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George had a miserable night Wednesday against Charlotte (two points, five turnovers, 0-for-9 shooting)

3/4/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Indiana small forward Paul George didn't shoot the ball well Tuesday against the Warriors (8-for-23) but still managed 26 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.
Insight: George has been anything but efficient over his last five games, shooting just 39 percent from the field during that span. But when you're taking as many shots as George is (17.5 field goal attempts per game), fantasy owners tend not to complain. As long as George (22.7 ppg) keeps shooting, fantasy owners should be able to look past his low percentage.
 
Hot3/3/2014 5:27:00 PM

Description: Pacers small forward Paul George has made just 39.3 percent of his field-goal attempts and 31 percent of his threes while averaging 20.1 points over his last 23 games. He had 12 points on 4-of-17 shooting Wednesday against Dallas.
Insight: George averaged 23.9 points per game on 47.5 percent shooting his first 29 games of the season but has tailed off a bit offensively. He's still putting up plenty of points, rebounds, threes, assists and steals to make fantasy owners happy.
 
2/9/2014 9:12:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Paul George rebounded from an awful game Friday (5-for-23 shooting versus Portland) by scoring 27 points Sunday in a loss to Orlando.
Insight: George drilled five of his eight three-point attempts and almost led Indiana back from a seven-point deficit late in the fourth quarter. George has fallen behind Kevin Durant in the MVP race but fantasy owners really don't have much to complain about after his amazing first half. Neither do Pacers fans, as Indiana still owns the best record in the NBA.

1/18/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Indiana forward Paul George was sensational Saturday in a win against the Clippers.
Insight: He led all scorers with 36 points including a 360-windmill dunk that brought down the house. George was 5-of-6 from three-point range and 7-of-7 from the line. In less than two years, George has gone from a role player to a legitimate MVP candidate.
 
1/14/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Paul George led the way with 31 points Tuesday in a rout of Sacramento.
Insight: It wasn't without its flaws: George did commit five turnovers in the contest.

The victory puts Indiana three games ahead of Miami for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Cold1/8/2014 12:16:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George comes into Wednesday's game at Atlanta having shot 35.4 percent from the field and 19.4 percent from 3-point range over his last five games.
Insight: George shot 47.5 percent and averaged 23.9 ppg over his first 29 games. He followed up his last slump -- 27 percent shooting from Dec. 10-16 -- by scoring 24-plus points in five straight games, so keep him in the lineup.
