INDIANAPOLIS - Paul George is getting back on his feet. [url=http://www.nygiantsfanat

INDIANAPOLIS - Paul George is getting back on his feet. Rhett Ellison Jersey .Less than two months after sustaining a gruesome compound fracture of his right leg, team doctors have cleared the Pacers two-time All-Star to put weight on his injured leg and begin upper body work in the weight room.Hes down to one crutch or no crutches, coach Frank Vogel said Thursday at the teams annual golf outing near Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For the past three or four weeks, hes been doing core work, upper body work in the weight room, and they want him to put weight on it.Thats good news for George, who still hopes to beat the odds and return to the team later this season. Team doctors have told George while its likely hell make a full recovery, it may take 12 months.He was injured during a U.S. national team scrimmage Aug. 1 in Las Vegas when his leg snapped after colliding with a basketball stanchion. George told reporters last month that doctors placed pins in his knee and ankle to stabilize a rod that was inserted into the injured leg, which was broken in two places but did not damage any ligaments, tendons, joints or nerves. Three days later, he returned to his suburban Indianapolis home.Over the past several weeks, Georges workload has been ramping up. He could soon become more involved with his teammates -- many of whom have been working out in Indianapolis before training camp opens Tuesday. Some have seen or spoken with George regularly.Hes doing great, said free-agent signee C.J. Miles, who will help fill the scoring void. Hes in there every day lifting. It just shows his character and who he is, a guy who will do whatever he can to help his team win.Vogel knows having George around will provide inspiration for the team, and other players such as All-Star centre Roy Hibbert, power forward David West and point guard George Hill will be motivated to disprove those predicting gloom for the two-time Eastern Conference runner-ups in Georges absence.Vogel believes his 24-year-old star can provide help from the bench.Ive given him a clipboard to chart deflections and contested shots. We cant just let him sit around, Vogel said. Any time you have an opportunity to observe the game or your team or your system, I think it helps you grow your understanding of everything.It could help turn George into an even better player when he returns. After this tumultuous off-season, theres plenty George can learn.Hes missing friend and teammate Lance Stephenson, who signed with Charlotte in free agency; been involved in a paternity hearing and made the headlines this month after using his Twitter account to opine about former NFL star Ray Rice and domestic violence.George later deleted the offensive tweets and posted an apology, saying he didnt intend to downplay the situation.Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird responded a few hours after Georges initial posts with a statement that called the comments thoughtless and without regard to the subject of domestic violence and its seriousness in society.George also issued a second apology, and Vogel said team officials have spoken with George about using social media.Larry talked to him a lot about it and Ive talked to him a little about it, said Vogel, without elaborating.The immediate concern is making sure George gets healthy -- and figuring out how to replace Indianas best all-around player. George averaged 21.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists last season, earning his first All-Star start and a first-team selection on the NBAs all-defensive team.While the Pacers did receive a disabled player exemption, it didnt give the Pacers any salary cap relief and Bird has repeatedly said he wont go over the luxury-tax threshold.That means the roster is pretty much set. But Vogel isnt fretting.I think this has been my approach every year, whether youre a front-runner or an underdog, Vogel said. We have everything we need to compete at the highest level. Phil Simms Jersey . The incident occurred at 6:28 of the first period in Anaheims 6-3 home win over Dallas on Sunday. Garbutt left the penalty box and skated at Penner before leaving his skates to deliver a check. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey . When a game is in the balance, however, they still have the personnel and the experience to end up with the two points. . Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of regulation. Anthony finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, missing 20 of 30 shots in the Knicks sixth straight loss.SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Barry Bonds is all set to return to the San Francisco Giants. As a spring training instructor, that is. The all-time home run leader who never officially retired is expected to arrive during the second week of March. Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that hes looking forward to having the 49-year-old Bonds in camp and thinks he can help the hitters. Bonds spent his last 15 seasons with the Giants, finishing in 2007. He has not been elected to the Hall of Fame, with many voters saying his lofty numbers were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds set major league records with 762 career home runs and 73 in 2001. He also had a .444 career on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage and stole 514 bases. Hell join former Giants Jeff Kent, Robb Nen, Will Clark and J.T. Snow as special instructors. Kent and Bonds were involved in a highly publicized feud during the 2002 season, which reached its peak in June, when the two engaged in a shoving match in the dugout that was caught on camera. Bonds final contract with the Giants included a 10-yeear services deal following his retirement, which included spring training visits. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey. The seven-time MVP has made limited public appearances since his final season, and has been embroiled in legal trouble. Bonds remains a fan favourite in San Francisco, enjoying a warm reception any time hes introduced at AT&T Park, the Giants home park. Matt Cain, the Giants longest active tenured player, was Bonds teammate between 2005-07. Tim Lincecum made his major league debut in 2007. Bonds also holds the big league records for walks in a season (232 in 2004, including a record 120 intentional walks) and in a career (2,558). Bonds was a .298 hitter during a 22-year career. He had a .609 on-base percentage and .812 slugging percentage in 2004. Overall, Bonds homered against 449 different pitchers. He shares the major league record with his father, Bobby Bonds, for most seasons (5) with 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases. He hit eight home runs in the 2002 post-season and holds the record for highest slugging percentage (1.294 in 2002) in a World Series.
