T.J. Leaf is also questionable for Saturday’s game after injuring his ankle in the second quarter of the Pacers win against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Quick Note: I’m going to post Pacers column every Monday and occasionally Friday. It’ll break down some of the biggest Pacer news of the week, plays I’ve liked and didn’t like and preview the upcoming matchups. I also want to incorporate a mailbag piece to each column but I’ll need questions for that. I’ll remind people in my posts over the next couple weeks, but if you have at least a semi-related Pacer mailbag question you want answered click this Google link to submit them or clicking here.
