The Pacers are trying to get healthy and rolling at the same time as the face the Toronto Raptors on St. Patty's Day.
The Raptors are solidly in the second spot in the East but still well within striking distance of the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top spot. DeMarre Carroll (knee) remains out which is good news for Paul George but the backcourt duo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are always trouble for the Pacers. DeRozan missed the Raps win over Milwaukee on Tuesday but that appears to have been a night off for rest.
As for the Pacers, another day another injury concern. Ty Lawson (foot) remains questionable but hopes to be available while C.J. Miles and George Hill expect to give it a go, as well. Ian Mahinmi is now doubtful with a sore lower back.
That last bit of news should put Jordan Hill into the starting lineup which may not be a bad thing. In their last meeting at the Fieldhouse, foul trouble limited Mahinmi's minutes and Jordan Hill put up 20 points and 13 rebounds off the bench in the 106-90 win.
