The Pacers catch the defending champs at a good time as the Warriors battle the injury report while easing their way through the remainder of the regular season essentially locked in the two spot in the West. The injury news for the Pacers is improving with Domas Sabonis appearing ready to return...again. Sabonis was good to go on Sunday before getting tangled up with a ball boy during warmups and twisting his ankle. He appeared to be moving well in practice yesterday, so hopefully he’s a go for the West Coast tour.
The Warriors have lost five of their last eight games while dealing with an injury-depleted lineup that has put the team’s four key “super team” components on the bench for various ailments. Draymond Green was probable yesterday but then downgraded to doubtful for the Pacers while dealing with flu-like symptoms. Additioinally, Steph Curry (knee), Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (thumb) are out for the Dubs.
The Pacers won’t miss facing Klay considering he dropped 60 on them last year in three quarters at ORACLE Arena.
