Pacers vs. Knicks: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

After a busy day off the court, the Pacers will likely welcome a chance to hit the floor at MSG and play a game while keeping Chris Copeland in their thoughts.

The Pacers turn their attention back to basketball when they take on the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

An early morning incident which left Chris Copeland in the hospital took the focus away from the task at hand for the team, which is all about winning and trying to keep pace with Miami and Boston in the race for the playoffs in the East. Obviously, Copeland will be out and C.J. Watson (elbow) is questionable. Rodney Stuckey is probable as is George Hill. Hill didn't travel with the team after missing practice on Tuesday with personal issues.

The Knicks remain a team resigned to finishing the year in prime draft lottery position which should help the Pacers get through the night despite the distractions. The Pacers are 3-0 in their previous games against the Knicks this season.
