LAS VEGAS -- Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George has undergone successful surgery on his broken right leg and is expected to remain in the hospital for about three days. Donovan Smith Jersey . The 6-foot-9 George had an operation at Sunrise Hospital to repair the open tibia-fibula fracture, USA Basketball said in a statement early Saturday morning. Dr. David Silverberg, Dr. Joseph Yu and USA Basketball team physician Riley Williams, were present for the surgery, the release said. George suffered the gruesome right leg injury late in the U.S. national teams intrasquad scrimmage Friday night. He leaped to contest a fast-break layup by James Harden with 9:33 left in the fourth quarter and his leg smashed against the bottom of the backboard stanchion and crumpled. Trainers immediately ran onto the floor and after roughly 10 minutes of stoppage, George was taken out of the arena on a stretcher. With players looking visibly upset, coach Mike Krzyzewski then announced to the crowd that the scrimmage would not be finished out of respect to George and his family. According to sources of ESPN, doctors believe George will miss the entire 2014-15 NBA season following the surgery. No official timetable has been given. On Saturday morning, Larry Bird, the Pacers president of basketball operations, issued an updated statement saying its too early to start talking about Georges expected return. "We are hopeful at some point next week Paul will return to Indianapolis to continue his recovery," Bird said. "There is no question about the impact on our team but our goal is to be as strong-willed and determined as Paul will be in coming back. Our franchise has had setbacks in its history but has demonstrated the abilities to recover. Paul will provide the example of that off the court and it is up to the rest of us to provide that example on the court. Any discussion regarding the future of our team would be inappropriate at this time. Our focus is solely on Paul and doing whatever we can to help." Bird also said the Pacers are committed to helping the national team give basketball a global reach. "This is a first for us in USA Basketball, to have something like this take place," USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. "Its a tough situation for our entire organization, the coaches, the players. Very, very emotional. Theres no way the game could have gone on under the circumstances." Doctors estimate a full recovery could take as much as 18 months. Dr. Patrick Kersey, who treated Louisville guard Kevin Ware when he sustained a similar injury during the NCAA tournament regional finals in 2013, said George will likely need 6 to 12 weeks to recover from surgery and another 6 to 10 weeks to get back to a normal walking gait. Kersey is not treating George. A complete recovery, Kersey said, normally takes 12 to 18 months, though the fact he is an elite athlete in top shape could speed up that timeframe. The hardest part for the Pacers might be keeping George off the court once he thinks hes ready. "Its a challenge because (athletes) want to push the envelope always," Kersey said. "The question that is already being asked this morning is how quickly can he get back. He needs to heal. First, he has to get back to a normal life, then his body needs to work in an efficient way and once those pieces are in place, he can start training." George was considered a lock to make the final 12-man roster for the World Cup of Basketball that starts later this month in Spain. "Thanks everybody for the love and support," he wrote on Twitter. "Ill be ok and be back better than ever!!! Love yall!!" The Americans planned to reduce the 20-player pool to 14 or 15 players Saturday, but put off those plans after Georges injury. "Everythings on hold right and it should be," Krzyzewski said. "It would be so inappropriate for us to talk about anything else when theres a serious injury like this." The defending champion U.S. team had already been weakened by player losses. Forwards Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard had all pulled out in recent weeks. Krzyzewski and Colangelo refused to discuss the roster after the game, saying they didnt even know when they would make roster reductions. "As an organization, were just going to let a little bit of time go by here before we address anything like rosters, all that stuff," Colangelo said. "It seems so unimportant in the big scheme of things when you have something like this take place. It puts things in perspective." George would have been a candidate to start for the Americans alongside Kevin Durant. The two, along with Harden, spent the week playing in 1-on-1 competitions after practice, pushing one another while building chemistry leading up to Friday nights game. George led the Pacers to the best record in the Eastern Conference before they were eliminated by Miami in the Eastern Conference finals. The Americans have to be down to 12 players before they open the tournament on Aug. 30. They are scheduled to take the next week off before reconvening in Chicago for their next practice on Aug. 14. Some NBA executives have long been concerned about injuries to players during summer competitions. Pau Gasol, then playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, broke his foot while leading Spain to the 2006 world title, and Manu Ginobili injured his ankle while playing for Argentina in the 2008 Olympics. He is sitting out the World Cup while recovering from a stress fracture in his right leg. "Anything can happen anywhere, a lot of things happen," said Krzyzewski, who was coaching Duke against Louisville when the Cardinals Kevin Ware broke his leg during the 2013 NCAA tournament. "Tonight it happened during a basketball game. We need to take care of that," Krzyzewski said. "It doesnt mean itll happen again and again and again; it means that it happened right now."

Mako Vunipola was promoted from the reserves, with Matt Mullan called up to the bench on Thursday. "It is important that Joe is with his partner at this exciting time," England coach Stuart Lancaster said.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alex Gordon is eager for another marketing gimmick. Gordon and Salvador Perez homered, Danny Duffy pitched into the seventh inning and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 7-4 Sunday for their seventh consecutive victory. The Royals gave out 10,000 Gordon bobbleheads for the series finale against San Francisco. Gordon, who played his college ball at Nebraska, also homered on Husker Night on Saturday. "Weve got to think of a promotion for tomorrow to keep it going," Gordon said. The big weekend is part of a nice roll for Gordon, who is batting .350 (14 for 40) with three homers and seven RBIs in his last 11 games. "Gordy is not swinging the bat well because it is Husker day or because it was bobblehead day," Yost said. "Gordy is swinging the bat well because he is seeing the ball well and putting good swings on it." The Royals, who won 10 in a row in June, have put together two winning streaks of seven or more games this season for the first time since 1985, the last time they were in the playoffs. They moved within one-half game of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. The Tigers lost 6-5 to the Toronto Blue Jays in 19 innings on Sunday. Gordon hit a two-run shot off Tim Lincecum (9-8) in a four-run first. The inning also included Billy Butlers run-producing double and Perez scoring on a wild pitch. "He was all over the board," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Lincecum. "When he threw a strike or threw an off-speed pitch it was up. He regrouped, but its tough when you get down four runs." Perez homered off Juan Gutierrez with Nori Aoki aboard in a three-run fourth. Aoki reached base four times -- two walks and two singles -- and stole three bases. Jarrod Dyson went 3 for 3 and also swiped a career-high three bases. Duffy (7-10) allowed four runs and three hits in 6 2-3 innings iin winning back-to-back starts for the first time this season. Cameron Brate Jersey. He walked two in the seventh and both scored on an Andrew Susacs double. "You are really comfortable on the mound," Duffy said after the four-run first. "The offence just keeps doing their job. Its been a lot of fun to watch." Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, was roughed up for six runs and seven hits in 3 1-3 innings. Lincecum, who is winless since July 11, has a 10.59 ERA in his past four starts, giving up 20 runs and 28 hits in 17 innings. "You just see how far you can go to give your team a chance to fight back and get in the game," Lincecum said. Wade Davis pitched a scoreless eighth and Greg Holland worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth while picking up his American League-leading 34th save in 36 opportunities. ON DECK Giants: After an off day Monday, right-hander Ryan Vogelsong, who has won his past two starts, will pitch Tuesday against the White Sox, the only big league team he has never faced. Royals: Rookie Yordano Ventura starts the opener of a four-game series with Oakland. Ventura is 4-6 with a 3.39 ERA this season at home. TRAINING ROOM Giants: Michael Morse was a late scratch with an ingrown toenail. Gregor Blanco replaced him in left field. Royals: Luke Hochevar, who had Tommy John surgery in spring training, will begin a throwing program on Sept. 10. A GIANT MOVE The Giants recalled first baseman Adam Duvall from Triple-A Fresno. Duvall was among the Pacific Coast League leaders with 26 homers, 84 RBIs and a .596 slugging percentage at the time of the promotion. Outfielder Juan Perez was sent down to Fresno. RUNNING ROYALS The seven stolen bases were one shy of the Royals record, set on Aug. 1, 1998, against Baltimore. Aoki and Dyson are the first Royals teammates to steal three bases in the same game.
