More bad injury news for the Pacers prior to tipping off against Spurs.

The Pacers absorbed more bad injury news on Monday afternoon when Myles Turner was ruled out with a partial tear of his plantar plate in the great toe of his right foot.

Ouch.

Turner returned for one game after missing six consecutive games with an ankle sprain. While Turner was out, the Pacers were able to crank up the offense while suffering on defense. In his return game against Atlanta, Turner anchored a strong reserve unit but overall the team struggled to stop and/or keep up with the Hawks.

Nate Bjorkgren didn’t have much to add to the diagnosis of being “out indefinitely” prior to the team’s game against the Spurs on Monday evening. The descriptive deep dive into the structure of the toe injury leaves us laypeople with indication that the injury is a bit more significant than a big toe strain, but time is not only the great healer but also the teller of how long we can expect the Pacers to be without Myles at this point.
