The Pacers will take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City. These two teams haven’t faced each other yet this season, and I anticipate a tough game.
Injury Reports Indiana Pacers – Oklahoma City Thunder
Previous game: The Pacers lost to the Bucks, 132-119. They had problems stopping the other team from scoring, and they’ll need to improve that significantly if they want to beat the Thunder away from home.
Injury Report: Tyrese Haliburton PG (Knee), Kendall Brown SG (Leg), and Daniel Theis PF (Knee) are out.
Tyrese Haliburton was injured in a game and is nursing a sprained elbow and a bruised knee. He will be examined once more in two weeks. The group is also anticipating feedback from Haliburton’s customers regarding the scan results.
The Pacers are likely to be cautious with their star player, so fantasy managers shouldn’t expect Haliburton to return right away after two weeks. At 20.2-points per game and 10.2-assists, 4.0-rebounds, and 1.8-steals per game on average, he is having an All-Star season.
- Hot games:
- Injuries Lakers vs. Kings: LeBron James, Anthony Davis ready?
- Injury Reports Nuggets: Are Nikola Jokic and Anthony Edwards playing vs Timberwolves?
Before this game, the Thunder beat the Brooklyn Nets, 112-102. Excellent work on defense prevented the Nets from establishing a rhythm in the offensive end. If they want to maintain their popularity at home, they will need to give the same performance again.
Injury Report: Eugene Omoruyi SF (Back) is questionable. Aleksej Pokusevski PF (Knee), Ousmane Dieng PF (Wrist), Jeremiah Robinson-Earl PF (Ankle), and Chet Holmgren C (Foot) are out.
According to Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault, Robinson-Earl is back on the road with the team as he recovers from a sprained right ankle but is still not considered day-to-day.
Daigneault declined to give a specific timetable for Robinson-Earl, but it appears that the second-year big man will be out for at least another week.
