Oklahoma City Thunder's Paul George finished the season playing hurt, but on Tuesday we found out just how injured he was.

According to ESPN, the Thunder all-star will undergo rotator cuff surgery due to a torn tendon in his right shoulder.

His recovery will take several months and he could miss the start of Thunder training camp.

Meanwhile, George's teammate Russell Westbrook is also on the mend.

According to ESPN's Royce Young, Westbrook has only missed two games, which were last September, since first having surgery on his knee in 2013.

Westbrook had surgery for a torn ligament in his left hand and cleanup of his right knee.

ESPN reports that Westbrook will return to full basketball activites in about three weeks.
