Pacers star forward Paul George could be heading home soon.

He remains in a Las Vegas hospital recovering from that devastating leg injury.

He was playing in the "team USA Showcase" Friday night when he suffered a broken leg.

He was immediately transported to the hospital where a metal rod was surgically implanted into the hollow of his bone.

The recovery process is expected to take a minimum of six months.

Today is the third day he's in the hospital.

He was originally expected to be discharged after three days.
