New, comments

Indiana and Minnesota meet on Wednesday night in Fargo, ND to begin preseason play.

The Indiana Pacers were likely ready to go anywhere as long as they could play another team after a full week of training camp with 10 practices. Fargo, North Dakota? No problem.

The Pacers will face the Minnesota Timberwolves from the FARGODOME on Wednesday night in their first preseason game, yet another milestone on the march toward the NBA regular season starting on Halloween.

As Mike Wells reports, the Frank Vogel doesn't plan on playing Danny Granger in the preseason opener and also doesn't expect to play David West nor Roy Hibbert much. Another interesting tidbit comes from Vogel continuing to heap praise on Jeff Pendergraph's play in camp, mentioning that he is pushing Tyler Hansbrough to hang on to that reserve power forward spot.
