VIDEO: T.J. Warren and Malcolm Brogdon play 1-on-1 after Pacers practice
Both players are sidelined by injuries, but they're challenging each other at practice. There's no timetable for either to return.
The current state of the Pacers isn’t good to begin February. After going 5-11 last month, they’re now 19-33, 13th in East and have the fifth-worst record in the NBA. I’ve been on the Pacers beat since 2012 and this … is highly unusual.
The season was derailed by injuries even before training camp started — with T.J. Warren yet to play in a game due to a slow-healing foot after surgery, Caris LeVert dealing with a stress fracture in his back at the start of camp, and so on.
Honestly, you’re probably tired of hearing and reading about injuries. Yet on top of that, they’ve been negatively affected by 13 players so far entering the health and safety protocols over the last two months.
One thing that is different recently is that Warren has returned to playing 1-on-1.
