Paul George, Roy Hibbert to sit out preseason game against Mavericks

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Two starters will be out when the Pacers return to action at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday.

The Pacers continue to re-acclimate to the Easter Time after returning from Taiwan on Sunday and flipping their time zones 180 degrees back where it started the following week. On Tuesday, they returned to their regular practice schedule at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to prepare for their next preseason game on Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks at BLF.

The Pacers will play the Mavs without Paul George and Roy Hibbert, according to Scott Agness from Pacers.com.

Sounds like PG was hurting with a 104 degree temperature to go along with the bronchitis. As for Hibbert, sounds like it is his turn to rest after Luis Scola took the game off in Taipei. Frank Vogel went on to mention that he will play the team's final two preseason games at Atlanta and Dallas like regular season games but until then he will continue mixing and matching player combinations with no cuts expected until next week. After facing the Mavs at BLF, the Pacers finish preseason play on the road at Chicago (Friday) and Cleveland (Saturday) before going on to Atlanta and Dallas next week.

Having Mahinmi start makes sense, so Scola can maintain the slot in the playing rotation he will have during the regular season. Also, on the good news front, George Hill's ankle is not an issue since he practiced today and expects to start against the Mavs.
