The Indiana Pacers hit the road for the first of two games in three day which will bring their preseason schedule to an end. First up, a stop in Minnesota for a rehearsal rematch against the Timberwolves.
The Pacers opened preseason play with a 103-90 win at the Fieldhouse. This time around, the Pacers will play without David West (ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (foot) while Frank Vogel tries to finalize the questions in his playing rotation. Those questions reside in the distribution of wing minutes so with Stuckey out, more minutes are up for grabs. We'll see who among Chris Copeland, Solomon Hill and Damjan Rudez can take advantage.
As for Minnesota, we'll see if they give Chase Budinger some extended minutes as a potential trade tryout. Personally, if the Pacers are willing to help Minnesota with their loaded wing lineup, I'd prefer making a run at Corey Brewer.
