Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George had surgery on his broken right leg and is resting comfortably in a hospital, USA Basketball announced.
George is expected to remain at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas after having surgery Friday night to repair a broken tibia and fibula.
George was injured during Team USA's showcase game Friday night on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
George was sprinting downcourt early in the fourth quarter to defend a layup attempt by Houston's James Harden when he landed awkwardly on his right leg, causing his leg to buckle and snap above his ankle.
His recovery time is estimated to be at least 12 months.
"Our first thoughts are with Paul and his family," Pacers president Larry Bird said in a statement Saturday. "It is way too early to speculate on his return as the No. 1 priority for everyone will be his recovery. Our initial discussions with our doctors and the doctors in Las Vegas have us very optimistic. We are hopeful at some point next week Paul will return to Indianapolis to continue his recovery.
Saturday was supposed to be a cut-down day for Team USA as the 20-player pool was expected to be reduced to 14 or 15 players, but those plans are on hold after George's injury.
"Everything's on hold, and it should be," Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "It would be so inappropriate for us to talk about anything else when there is an injury like this."
Friday's game was canceled after George was treated on the court in front of a stunned and silenced crowd before being removed on a stretcher.
George, 24, is a two-time All-Star who averaged 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.9 steals per game last season for the Pacers.
---Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose told ESPN Friday night that there is no problem between him and the team.
Rose's comments came a day after he acknowledged that there is tension between some members of his entourage and the team's front office.
Earlier in the week, owner Jerry Reinsdorf denied a report of a rift by the Chicago Sun-Times.
"It's funny just hearing so many stories about what's going on, and they're coming out kind of out of nowhere," Rose said.
---Former NBA center Vlade Divac underwent emergency stomach surgery in his native Serbia on Saturday.
Doctors said in a statement that Divac was admitted to a Belgrade hospital after feeling "strong pains in his stomach." However, his life was not threatened. His health problem was not specified.
Divac, 46, heads the Serbian Olympic Committee. He played in the NBA with the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings from 1989 to 2005 and averaged 11.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.
