Los Angeles Clippers fans can take a collective sigh of relief as it seems that Paul George's absence in their last game against the Washington Wizards isn't anything serious.

The seven-time All-Star missed their last game before the break due to a headache which, especially in these tough times, can seem very alarming. But apparently, according to the Clippers star himself, it was a simple case of having way too much caffeine.

“A lesson learned. I had too much caffeine,” Paul George said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. “I think it was too much caffeine at that time. It made me real jittery and sped me up. A lesson learned on that situation, never have too much caffeine too close on back to back (games).”

It's called palpitation, PG. That's a usual Monday in my world.

Kidding aside, it's definitely positive to hear that George's injury was rather mild. The Clippers did miss his services though, as they lost by just two points against Bradley Beal and Co. in their visit to the nation's capital.  As he mentioned, it was their second game of a back-to-back set that ended up 0-2.

This last road trip to end the first half of their season was quite a rough one for the Clippers. They first split their back-to-backs against the Memphis Grizzlies before losing again to the Milwaukee Bucks. Adding their two losses, they were just 1-5 in their past six outings, which has now brought them down to the fourth spot in the Western Conference with the Portland Trail Blazers and the Denver Nuggets breathing down their necks.

PG might need some tips from Big Face Coffee CEO and chief barista, Jimmy Butler, the next time he needs his caffeine fix sorted out.
