PG13 has been out since December with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Youngmisuk and Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times also reported that George participated in 5-5 practices on Sunday and Monday.

George missed 43 games over the last three months, but the Clippers have fought to rank eighth in the Western Conference playoff seedings. With their spot locked in for the play-in tournament and with George returning as soon as Tuesday, the scrappy Clippers could be a threat to advance into playoffs against an equally plucky Minnesota Timberwolves team.
The Fresno State product averaged 24.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game before he was sidelined.
