Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George suffered a devastating injury and will likely miss the entire 2014-2015 season just two weeks ago.

During a scrimmage for Team USA in Las Vegas, George came down awkwardly on his right leg and suffered a compound fracture.

Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports attended George’s press conference Friday afternoon. George told reporters there was no timetable for his return and there is a “possibility” he won’t play next season. However, he does not think the injury will affect him in a negative way. He also described the current status of his leg.

George averaged 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.9 steals per while shooting 42.4% from the field, 36.4% from beyond the arc and 86.4% from the charity stripe. In the postseason, he put up 22.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.2 steals per game while shooting 43.8% from the field, 40.3% from three and 78.9% from the free throw line. In his four-year NBA career, he’s put up 15.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game while shooting 42.8% from the floor, 36.0% from beyond the arc and 82.8% from the free throw line.
