Bennedict Mathurin has been playing at an elite level this season for the Pacers being one of the surprises of the draft. However, in the most recent contest, the rookie injured his ankle in what looked like a pretty bad injury.

The question is, will Bennedict Mathurin be on the court and playing against the Detroit Pistons with the Indiana Pacers on March 11th?

Bennedict Mathurin has been ruled out of the contest tonight with a continued ankle injury. While further details have not been announced, it is probably pretty safe to assume that Mathurin will miss a handful of games with the ankle sprain.

And he’s not the only one as the injury report is quite lengthy for the game.
