Thunder Forward Paul George Undergoes Successful Knee Surgery

Paul George Has Knee Surgery Faces 6-8 Week Recovery

A scope is a minor, arthroscopic surgery and means doctors made small incisions into George's knee to insert a small camera into his knee.

George surprised the National Basketball Association world Wednesday afternoon, when he posted a photo in his Instagram stories as he was about to undergo the procedure.

"The Thunder, George, and his representation collectively determined for the procedure to be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache with Thunder personnel present at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, California".

"I'd love to remain a Thunder, but that's what the summer is for", George said after the Thunder were knocked out of the first round of the playoffs, according to the Oklahoman's Erik Horne.


According to the Thunder organization, Paul George underwent a left knee scope on Wednesday and will be sidelined from offseason activities for 6-8 weeks.

George has a player option for $20.7 million for this season, but is expected to decline it to become one of the offseason's most highly pursued free agents.

George, 28, had a stellar initial season with Oklahoma City, recording an average of 21.9 points on 40 percent shooting from distance.
