The Indiana Pacers return to action at the Fieldhouse on Friday night when the Toronto Raptors visit featuring familiar reserves, Tyler Hansbrough and D.J. Augustin.

The Raptors are just 2-3 but have plenty of talent in place to be a problem matchup on any given night. Guard DeMar DeRozan leads the Raps by scoring 19 points per game with Rudy Gay chipping in 17 per thus far. Gay has historically HATED his matchups with Paul George since the Pacers' defensive wiz has forced Gay to work far too hard for his buckets in the past.

As well as Lance Stephenson has played down the stretch lately at the offensive end, he can have a bigger impact on this game by keeping DeRozan in check. Seems like a tough task for Lance but he's kinda into surprising people of late.

George Hill went through shootaround earlierbut left his status as a game-time decision after his workout. He did confirm progress with the injury and an effort by the training staff to help Hill avoid an injury that lingers.
