The Indiana Pacers try to add to their win total tonigh when the Charlotte Bobcats pay them a visit at the Fieldhouse. Mike Dunleavy will likely remain in the starting lineup with his 28 minute limit. What will be interesting is to see how Dunleavy is managed in a few days when the Pacers play four games in five days. I can only assume the minutes limit will temporarily go down.

But for tonight, no Dunleavy-related problems have been reported so he must've survived the 33 minute outing in Orlando without any ill effects. Jeff Foster wasn't so lucky. After throwing his body against Dwight Howard for 15 minutes on Monday, Mighty Mike Wells reports that Foster's back needs a bit more time to recover so he will not be available tonight. Double-knots on the shoes, Solo.
