Thunder’s George (shoulder) out vs. 76ers

OKLAHOMA CITY — Paul George will sit Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a sore right shoulder the team announced.

George injured the shoulder at some point during Tuesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. He was seen icing his shoulder after the game, and did not participate in the Thunder’s shootaround Thursday morning. There’s no timetable on George’s return to play, but he’ll take it day by day and see how he feels. The Thunder’s next game is in San Antonio on Saturday.

George joins Joel Embiid (knee) and Boban Marjanovic on the sidelines for Thursday’s showdown between the 76ers and Thunder.

George, 28, has missed one other game this season, which the Thunder won in Phoenix as Russell Westbrook scored 40 points. A candidate for MVP, George is averaging 28.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists per game this season.
