George (leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

His season debut continues to be a moving target, and he is running out of games to make an impact in fantasy leagues or in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Consider him game-to-game right now with his next chance to play being Tuesday at Brooklyn.

George (leg) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Pacers' play-by-play announcer Scott Agness reports.

No surprise here, as Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Monday night that George has not been cleared to play in games, which seemingly contradicted the words of team president Larry Bird. While Bird said he still expects George to play before the end of the season, Vogel does not seem so optimistic. If the Pacers don't pull things together soon, they will have no incentive to bring George back.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel said George (leg) has not been cleared to play, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Team president Larry Bird said earlier Monday that he thinks George has been cleared by doctors to play. Vogel indicated that isn't the case, giving a more pessimistic spin to George's 2014-15 outlook. It doesn't help that the Pacers have lost six consecutive games, as the team may not have anything to play for in its final few contests of the season.

Pacers president Larry Bird indicated Monday that he believes George (leg) has been cleared by doctors and will play this season, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports.

George indicated Friday the desire to play within a week, but his biggest holdup at this point appears to be conditioning. It would be beneficial to both he and his owners if that comes to fruition in the near future, but it's unclear exactly when that return to the court will occur. He's been ruled out for Monday already, making his next chance to return Wednesday against the Wizards.

George (leg) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rockets.

He remains without a timetable to return, but told reporters Monday that when the time is right, he will be back out there. It's pretty tough to get a read on the situation, but fantasy owners are certainly running out of time to extract some value out of George in 2014-15.

George (leg) remains without a timetable, according to head coach Frank Vogel.

George's timetable continues to be up in the air despite reports earlier in the week indicating that he's nearing he's close to a return. If you stashed him in your league, the cloudiness of this situation makes it hard to warrant hanging on to George if you're fighting for a playoff spot.

George (leg) will not play Saturday against the Nets, the Indianapolis Star reports.

There was some hope George could make his 2014-15 debut Saturday, but coach Frank Vogel shot down the possibility after Friday's 95-92 loss to Cleveland. The Pacers are reportedly targeting a return for George within the next week, but a specific return date is still up in the air.

George (leg) is aiming to play within a week and could play as soon as Saturday against Brooklyn, ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports.

While it's encouraging to hear that one of the league's top talents might soon return to the court, George's fantasy value still might not get off the ground during the current season. The seriousness of his injury means the Pacers will likely handle him very delicately, and both his minutes and his usage figure to be quite limited for the foreseeable future. He might be worth a pickup in deep leagues or leagues with big benches, but it's unfair to expect much from George this year.
