Paul George suffers gruesome leg injury (think Kevin Ware) in US exhibition Paul George's injury was bad enough that the rest of the US exhibition game was scratched. John Locher / AP AP Aug 1, 2014 at 11:06p ET LAS VEGAS -- Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George suffered a gruesome right leg injury late in the U.S. national team's intrasquad scrimmage Friday night. George leaped to contest a fast-break layup by James Harden with 9:33 left in the fourth quarter and his leg smashed against the bottom of the backboard stanchion. After roughly 10 minutes of stoppage, George was taken out of the arena on a stretcher. Coach Mike Krzyzewski then announced to the crowd that the scrimmage would not be finished. The White team led George's Blue team 81-71. George was considered a lock to make the final 12-man roster for the World Cup of Basketball that starts later this month in Spain.
