Recovered From a Shattered leg, Paul George is Eager for Chance at Olympic Gold

The Washington Post—July 26, 2016

Tim Bontemps, a reporter for The Washington Post, writes about Indiana Pacers' Paul George and his recovery following a fractured leg that led him to the 2016 Olympics Games.

Riley J. Williams, III, MD, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, comments on George's care: "I've come across a lot of personality types in sports. I didn't know [George] because he wasn't with my team, and I'd only known him for a week. But what a honest, well-raised, forthright guy. He's a total joy to deal with. … to have him come back [this way] has been pretty phenomenal."

The article indicates that "It's a dream that's only possible because of the quick work Dr. Riley Williams, III did that August night to give George a chance to get back on the court, and the days and weeks and months worth of rehab George subsequently did to get his body back into the world class shape it was before."
