The Pacers are back in action on Friday after All-Star break when they take on Frank Vogel (ok, and LeBron James) and the Lakers in Los Angeles.

The rough post-break schedule begins with the Pacers final trip out west and a back-to-back starting with a rested and ready LeBron and Co. Not ideal, bt with the news that Caris LeVert expects to return for the second game in Phoenix, the Pacers should get a additional boost of energy.

The Lakers will also be without some key bigs with Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol both out.
