Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George exited Tuesday's 101-100 loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder and did not return after suffering an apparent leg injury.

George was helped off the court and to the locker room after landing awkwardly trying to secure a rebound over Thunder wing Lugentz Dort.

"(George is) still being evaluated right now," Clippers head coach Ty Lue told reporters, including ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. "But I did see (the replay of the injury). I didn't even know it looked like that until (an assistant coach) just showed me, so I didn't even know (what happened)."

George has battled multiple lower-body injuries over his 13-year career, including a broken leg that kept him out for the majority of the 2014-2015 season.

The Clippers star recorded 18 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in 35 minutes before leaving the contest.

George has averaged 23.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists in his fourth season with Los Angeles.
