The Pacers’ Aaron Nesmith has been an excellent acquisition from the Boston Celtics this year, averaging career highs nearly across the board and playing excellent defense at the four spot. However, recently Nesmith has been hurt with a sore left hip.

Aaron Nesmith was a player that didn’t get much time in Boston and it has been good to see him get additional minutes since coming to the circle city.

Tonight, one of the worst teams of the league will come to Indiana in the Houston Rockets who will be coming with their own injuries. It is a great opportunity for the Pacers to rebound from the loss to the 76ers.

The question is, will Aaron Nesmith be on the court and playing against the Houston Rockets with the Indiana Pacers on March 9th?

Nesmith remains questionable for the game tonight, however, there is some optimism he could play given that he was dressed for practice on game day.

Given that he had not dressed for previous missed games, there is at least some progression of Nesmith getting back onto the court with the Pacers tonight against the Houston Rockets.

The Indiana Pacers upcoming opponents

The Pacers are coming off a tough loss against the 76ers and they have quite a mixed-bag of a schedule coming up. They play a couple of extremely difficult opponents in the Milwaukee Bucks and the 76ers (again!), with some easier games against the Pistons.
