When reached by the Courier-Journal, Ware said that he was initially shaken by George’s injury.

“I never thought I would see something like that,” the former Louisville guard said by phone on Saturday. “It was definitely some shock, and it sent chills through my body. I didn’t even know what to do or what to think, so I just had to walk out of the room. I asked somebody, ‘Did that just happen?’ I was out of the room for 10 minutes like, ‘Did that really happen?’ And I saw him down on the stretcher and was just like, ‘Oh, my God.'”

He then lent more support to the Pacers guard in what will be an uphill battle to return to the court.

“The sooner [George] can get his confidence up and put his leg down, the better he’ll be,” Ware said. “It’s all about his mind over matter, and Paul George is one of the strongest people, so I truly think he can get through this.”

George will likely miss the entire 2014-15 season.
