The Pacers hit the road for the first time in 2017 against the Pistons, hoping to begin the year with better results away from the Fieldhouse.

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers put their paltry 4-13 road record to the test against the Pistons, hoping to begin the new calendar year on a winning note.

One of those four road wins was over the Pistons at the Palace on Dec. 17 when the Pacers ran away from their hosts in the second half led by Paul George and Jeff Teague. Rodney Stuckey did not play in the last meeting and will miss this one as well, with a strained hamstring. Teague is also listed as questionable after turning his left ankle in the win over Orlando on Sunday.

The Pistons are 2-5 since last playing the Pacers and have altered their lineup a bit, starting Jon Leuer at forward and moving Tobias Harris to the reserve unit, although Harris continues to play heavy minutes and leads the team in scoring with over 16 points per game.
