George has played in two games since returning to the court after suffering a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his shooting elbow in December. George logged 31 minutes and scored 34 points Tuesday in a win over the Utah Jazz. Against the Bulls, George played 32 minutes and scored 22 points but did not play in overtime after reaching his minutes limit, according to coach Ty Lue.

With five games remaining, the Clippers have clinched a play-in berth and are entrenched in eighth place in the West at 37-40.
