  • Paul George and Russell Westbrook

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George underwent a pair of surgeries, one on each shoulder, and could be sidelined through the start of training camp next preseason, Adrian Wojnarowski and Royce Young of ESPN write.

Westbrook had a procedure on his finger to fix a torn ligament on his left hand while he also underwent a minor procedure on his right knee described as proactive maintenance.

George also will have surgery on a small labrum tear in his left shoulder in the coming weeks, the team said in a statement.

The surgery for Westbook is the fourth procedure on his right knee since 2013.

On April 25, George said he could leave the injury alone and it would become a recurring issue, but he wanted to address it now so he could "clean up what needs to be cleaned up, so it doesn't come back". An update on the six-time All-Star's return-to-play status will be provided prior to the start of the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.
