(6:36 pm ET) The Pacers remain hopeful forward Paul George (leg) will be able to play this season. 

Via Vigilant Sports, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said George has progressed to the point where he can fully participate in practice

“He’s practicing full-out now,” Vogel said.”I think he’s done three or four practices now; he’s not at full-strength yet so he’s still got some hurdles to get past before he’s able to get out on to the court and play in games. We’re hopeful that that happens this year. We’ll see how the next few weeks progress.”

There is still no timetable for George's return.

Spurs' Jarell Eddie following Danny Green career path
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:29 pm ET) Austin Spurs forward Jarell Eddie is modeling his career patch on current Spurs guard Danny Green, Spurs.com reports.

"I look at the way Danny rose up in the Spurs organization, and the way he can knock down shots, but also does the little things," Eddie said last week. "I look at him, and I know what I have to do to make it myself."

Eddie has made 42.2 percent of his three-point attempts and won the NBA Development League Three-Point Contest in February.

"Shooting’s a premium at the NBA level," Eddie said. "With the release that I have and the size that I have, I’ve always had the mindset the I’m an NBA player. Now, it's clear that if you keep working in the D-League, someone will spot you."

Green indicated that the intangibles picked up in the NBADL have helped him make a leap.

"It lights a fire under you to see what it really takes to make it to the NBA," Green said. "So you spend that extra time picking up things defensively. I feel like I’m the guy they look at a lot of times because I just worked really hard and can shoot the ball. Us D-League guys didn’t have the easiest path, but it’s a path that’s worth taking."
