Lance Stephenson Won't Play Again This Season After Violating Team Rules

Pacers rookie and former New York City high school legend Lance Stephenson has been demoted in the rotation to the role of fourth point guard (aka, Guy Who Is Inactive and Wearing a Suit), reports Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. So barring some borderline-unimaginable catastrophe, he will not play again this year.

Says Wells via Twitter:

Lance Stephenson is done playing for the Pacers this season. He’ll be the 4th point guard after violation of team rules. Immaturity – again.

Ford may play tomorrow against the Knicks, but he’ll definitely play at Orlando on Wednesday.

Vogel: “He’ll be the 4th point guard through the playoffs. This is being donr for disciplinary reasons. T.J. (Ford) will be our 3rd PG.”

This is the 3rd time in 8 months Stephenson is making negative news. He was the focal point behind the lockerroom blow up n Houston

In replying to Pacers fans, Wells also mentioned that “There’s a difference in being 20 and acting 20. And being 20 and acting only 15.”

Our own Tim Donahue discussed some of the post-Rockets game cacophony back when it occurred.

As for Lance (who I, for the record, have never spoken to), the kid just seems like a knucklehead. I have a feeling he isn’t just done with the Pacers for this season. I would be surprised to see him play for the Pacers ever again.

Born Ready, you say? Then what happened?
