The Indiana Pacers return to game action on Friday night after two days off at home when they host the Milwaukee Bucks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers remain without Danny Granger, although he is back to working out and trying to build up his left knee to tolerate game action with a hopeful return by the end of the season. David West remains sidelined with a lower back sprain which will likely keep him out against the Bucks and Chicago Bulls this weekend, according to Mike Wells.

The Pacers have responded well in two game earlier this week without West but now they will up the ante against two playoff teams. Tyler Hansbrough will continue to start in place of West.

Meanwhile, day two of the NCAA Tournament tips off today which includes No. 1 seed Indiana playing around 4 PM ET which works out perfect for Indiana hoop fans to watch the Hoosiers take care of JMU before checking out the Pacers and Bucks.
