LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Doc has given his diagnosis – Doc Rivers that is.
The Clippers coach Saturday told reporters Paul George will miss “at least” the first ten games of the season.
That would put George’s return to action around mid-November, which fits in with the timetable he gave reporters last year following surgery on both his right and left shoulders.
Mark Medina, USA Today’s NBA writer, first tweeted the Rivers comment Saturday.
Clippers haven't given a concrete timetable on Paul George's return. But Doc Rivers said in passing that Paul George "is not going to be here for the first 10." Hence, George might be out until Nov. 13 in Houston

Until he was injured last February, the 29-year-old George was enjoying an out-of-this-world season for the Thunder. While he came back down to Earth upon his return, the 6’9″ All-Star still finished third in MVP balloting for the year.
