Los Angeles Clippers superstar Paul George will remain out of action for the next three to four weeks, due to an elbow injury.

The All-Star guard/forward initially sustained the injury back on December 6 and had to be out for two weeks. He made his return last week and played against the San Antonio Spurs and the Sacramento Kings.

However, he re-aggravated his injury and underwent medical tests that showed a serious elbow injury. “After he felt pain, testing revealed tear in ulnar collateral ligament. They’ll see how elbow responds to rest in next 3-to-4 weeks before determining next steps,” Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Paul George is averaging 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 26 games this season. For their part, the Clippers are fifth in the West, at 17-15.
