The Pacers will turn to Donald Sloan once again this season, when the reserve point guard slides into the starting lineup against the Lakers with both George Hill and C.J. Watson out, according to the team.

Candace Buckner reports that Hilli s not expected to play in the next three games which would be the remainder of the road trip which continues in Utah on Monday and then Golden State on Wednesday. Watson's status remains game-to-game, as Frank Vogel didn't rule out his return on the trip.
The Pacers made due without the two point guards in Milwaukee on Monday, as Sloan played 33 minutes and finished with 10 points , six assists and eight rebounds. Equally impressive were his zero turnovers as the Pacers held on to post a solid road win over the Bucks.
