Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel reveals that Paul George is encouraged by the fact that he is expected to make a full recovery from his leg fracture.

The Indiana Pacers are confident that Paul George will make a full recovery from the compound fracture that he sustained in his right leg earlier this month.

The 24-year-old underwent surgery on August 2 and is now recovering at home ahead of a lengthy rehabilitation process which will keep him sidelined next season.

"He's in really good spirits. He's frustrated he's not able to play this year. It's going to be a tough process recovering from this, but he's encouraged that a full recovery is expected," coach Frank Vogel said, ESPN reports.

Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird has insisted that the franchise will not rush George back if the medical staff suggest he can make a return late in the season.
