Paul George suffered a devastating injury last night, but at least there is some positive news about his successful surgery.
According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the surgery on George’s leg showed no ancillary damage, and that fact will considerably help his recovery.
Pacers guard Paul George had a "good surgery. No ancillary damage" but likely out for next season, a source told Yahoo Sports.

He’s likely out for the season, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
It’s not like many did not see this coming. Given the gruesome nature of the injury, any return to the 2014-15 season appeared to be unrealistic.
Although he is out until next year, any encouraging news is welcome.
The whole league is wishing him well and hoping for a speedy recovery, including this message on Instagram from his rival LeBron James:
Hurt my stomach the moment I heard the news! I didn’t want to believe it. Man I need u out there bro! Get well and have a speedy recovery PG24! #DamnIt #YoungKing #StriveForGreatness
