Indiana Pacers swingman Paul George receives clearance to play in the third game of the Eastern Conference finals after recovering from a concussion.

Paul George has been cleared to take part in the third game of the Eastern Conference finals for the Indiana Pacers later today.

The All-Star was diagnosed with a concussion after taking a knee to the head during the team's defeat to the Miami Heat earlier this week.

In a statement, the team said: "Under the care of the Indiana Pacers' medical staff, Paul George has spent the past three days engaged in the NBA's Return-to-Participation Exertion Protocol as part of the NBA's Concussion Policy.

"George remained symptom free after each step of the process. The Pacers staff consulted with Dr Jeffrey Kutcher, the NBA's director of concussion management, throughout George's progress through the protocol and Friday cleared him to return to normal basketball activity."

The series between the top two seeds in the East is currently tied at 1-1.
