Mike Wells reports on the Pacers openly talking about Mike Duneleavy joining the team in uniform within the next week or two. There remain plenty of qualifiers to the speculation (we're hoping, we'll see how it goes) but it does sound like Dun will begin working himself back into the lineup as early as next week's road trip.
"We're hoping so, yes," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said Friday. "It's going to be very important to get him back. When he comes back, it's going to be limited, but just having Michael and Danny (Granger) being able to play together, that's the way we went into it."
That's some good news to toss on top of the W last night. Here are some more items of interest:
