George (ankle) underwent an elbow procedure earlier in the offseason to address bursitis in his shooting arm, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.
Per Bontemps, George had "complained off and on during the season that he was dealing with 'tightness' in his forearm." Despite having 18-to-20 ounces of excess blood sitting in the sac of his elbow, George still managed to shoot 40.1 percent from three-point range, the second-highest mark of his career. This isn't the first news that George had been playing the season beat up, as he also underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in May. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, George looks to be fully recovered from that procedure, as the forward was taking full contact in practices for Team USA on Thursday. Assuming he gets his body right, George could see his numbers take a step forward in his second season in Oklahoma City, especially with the departure of Carmelo Anthony creating a scoring void.
