Chris Duarte out through All-Star break with sore big left toe
The Pacers' 2021 lottery pick suffered the injury Sunday against the Timberwolves. It will also keep him out of the Rising Stars game at All-Star weekend.
Add another Pacer to the injury report.
This time it’s rookie guard Chris Duarte. He exited Sunday’s game just five minutes into what turned out to be a 129-120 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Duarte hobbled to the bench, then headed back to the locker room with assistant athletic trainer Patrick Gilbert. He did not return to the bench after sustaining a sore big left toe.
He will miss the Pacers’ final two games before a much-needed All-Star break, Tuesday in Milwaukee and Wednesday against the Wizards.
