Clippers basketball star Paul George has been spending some time in St. Barts and did not seem bothered by being absent from this weekend’s NBA All-Star game, where Team LeBron edged out Team Durant in a close 163-160 victory.

Due to an elbow injury, which he endured during the Clippers’ 102-90 victorious game against the Portland Trail Blazers on December 6, 2021, George has not played since December 22 and will be undergoing an MRI soon to see if he’ll be able to return in early March for the last games of the 2021-2022 season.

It seems like George has been getting some much-needed R&R on this vacation. He’s been spotted at the beach with his fiancée, the model Daniela Rajic. Fans and teammates are hopeful that George will be able to rejoin the Clippers for the second half of this season starting Friday, but the scope of his injury remains unclear.

It’s been reported by ESPN that surgery is a “real option,” to get George on the court faster. George has been key aspect of the Clippers’ strategy to stay competitive while Kawhi Leonard is sidelined due to a partially torn ACL, so it will be a huge blow to the team if he’s unable to come back for the whole season.

The Clippers will be taking on the Los Angeles Lakers this Friday, February 25.
