Pacers down to one at point guard as Watson is sidelined

Next man up. It's a cliché, but it's ever so true for the Pacers Saturday night in Detroit. On the second night of a back-to-back, C.J. Watson won't play after he strained his right hamstring in the first half of last night's win in Philadelphia. The injury may have occurred in the middle of the second quarter. After draining his first shot, a 3-pointer from the right arc, Watson winced all the down the flo ...

Pacers winning despite turnovers

Imagine if the Pacers could control their turnovers. Why, they'd probably be a first-place team or something. Oh, wait.

Vogel on bench scoring: ‘It’s really an extremely misleading stat’

Before a reporter could even finish his question about the second unit, it was abundantly clear that Pacers coach Frank Vogel wanted to get something off his chest. "I want to comment on that," he said. "We're 28th in bench scoring because we have such a good starting five. That's why. It's not because of the bench. It's because we play our starters heavy minutes. They've had health, OK. It's such a mislead ...

Injury Updates: Mahinmi ‘unavailable’ with bruised left rib

Pacers backup center Ian Mahinmi was sidelined on Tuesday for the first time this season due to an injury and is unavailable. He was not a full participant in Wednesday's practice, but could be seen getting shots up afterwards. “Ian’s [injury] is just one of those slow-healing things," said coach Frank Vogel.
