Paul George close to making his LA Clippers debut

Paul George's return is the key to get the Clippers to the next level

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

Wednesday's game against the Bucks is the first in a back-to-back for the Clippers, who last played on Sunday at home.

The NBA approved the Los Angeles Clippers' plan to sit star Kawhi Leonard for a pair of nationally televised games because it believes the forward is not yet healthy enough to play on consecutive nights, a league spokesman said Wednesday. The NBA then fined the Clippers for statements, include those by Rivers, that were inconsistent with Leonard's health while also detailing Leonard's knee injury.

But Rivers was asked several questions before the game about Leonard and his health.

Leonard played in just nine games for the Spurs in 2017-18 due to a quadriceps injury and played in just 60 of 82 regular-season games for the Toronto Raptors last season.

While leading the Bucks to a 3-1 record, Antetokounmpo averaged 25.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 57.8% from the field.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played from October 28-Nov. 3. He is expected to play Thursday night against Portland in another game that will be on national TV.

"I think Kawhi made a statement that he's never felt better". Last season's roster thrived by dominating bench minutes, but that hasn't been the case so far this year. "We want him to just keep feeling better and getting better".
