Pacers Links: Domantas Sabonis questionable after good MRI report

Domantas Sabonis filled his seat on the Pacers flight to Charlotte on Tuesday afternoon following MRI results on the big man’s left knee which confirmed a bruise, but no structural damage, via a report from Woj.

Sabonis left the Pacers’ win over the Raptors on Monday late in the first quarter after he and Kyle Lowry banged knees in the lane. So now Sabonis is with the team for their trip to Charlotte for two games against the Hornets on Wednesday and Friday.

A night off for Sabonis may be good for all of his body parts considering the light work following the injury just dropped Sabonis to fourth in the league in minutes played. But Sabonis has proven to be part machine this season, so his playing through a little pain would not be a surprise.

Before getting to the links, our thoughts are with the family of Sekou Smith which is huge when you consider the greater NBA family who loved him so. Sekou was a beat writer for the Pacers with the Indianapolis Star in the early 2000’s before going on to cover the league via NBA.com and his Hang Time podcast. RIP
