Paul George is the big injury for the Pacers.
But Indiana has also been without David West, George Hill and C.J. Watson all season.
The Pacers will get two of those players back against the Magic tonight.
At 6-9, the Pacers are only a half game outside of playoff position. Thank you, Eastern Conference.
They’ve defended well and grinded out a decent record despite being so shorthanded. A talent upgrade could give them a real shot at a postseason berth.
With Watson’s return, Indiana has waived A.J. Price. Donald Sloan has earned a continued role at point guard, even as the Pacers get healthier, leaving little use for Price.
