The Pacers find themselves in D.C. to play the Wizards on Monday night while the NCAA Elite Eight is played in Indy. All of a sudden, the Pacers are trying to win their third consecutive game as they continue to incorporate Caris LeVert into the playing rotation.
That rotation may be down one with sharp-shooting reserve, Doug McDermott listed as questionable after leaving the win over Dallas with a sprained ankle. If McBuckets can’t go, Aaron Holiday should get a chance to be back in the mix.
As for the Wiz, they have a crowded injury list with all eyes on leading scorer, Bradley Beal who is questionable while dealing with a right hip bruise. Washington is looking for consecutive wins despite dropping 8 of their last 10 games.
