The Pacers are limping into the play-in tournament.

LeVert didn’t necessarily test positive. He could be out due to contact tracing. But a 10-14-day timeline is typical of a positive test.
This has been a dramatic year for LeVert, who underwent kidney-cancer surgery after getting traded from the Nets.
The Pacers will miss him in tonight’s win-or-go-home game against the Hornets.
LeVert provided much-needed scoring and playmaking from the wing. Jeremy Lamb – who would’ve been in line to step up sans LeVert – is out against Charlotte with his own injury. Indiana will have to rely more heavily on Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott, Edmond Sumner and/or deeper bench options.
