Through the pain, Paul George found the strength to remain positive.

The Indiana Pacers' 24-year-old All-Star shared a message of thanks and optimism on Twitter not long after suffering an open tibia-fibula fracture to his right leg. The gruesome leg injury occurred during the U.S. national basketball team's intrasquad scrimmage on Friday night in Las Vegas.

The apparent severity of the injury left George's USA Basketball teammates in anguish and inspired fans and players alike to tweet #PrayForPaulGeorge as Friday gave way to Saturday
