The Pacers are coming off an electric win against the Toronto Raptors, where native son Nembhard iced the game in the final seconds.
Nembhard has now done this multiple times this season and is absolutely looking like the steal of the draft. The Pacers brought three Canadian players as starters against the Raptors and it was one of those starters that iced the game. However, the Pacers now need to turn their eyes to the class of the league, the Boston Celtics.
Although recent comments from Jaylen Brown may have you believe there is trouble in paradise in the Celtics locker room, we expect them to still be a formidable opponent when the Pacers arrive in Boston.
The question is, will Tyrese Haliburton be on the court and playing against the Boston Celtics with the Indiana Pacers on March 25th?
The Pacers have not upgraded Haliburton from questionable, so Tyrese may still be sitting out this game as well. The Pacers are likely continuing to be cautious with their young superstar, especially given the team doesn’t truly have much to play for this season.
- Chris Duarte, questionable, ankle injury
- Tyrese Haliburton, questionable, right ankle sprain
- Kendall Brown, out, shin surgery recovery
- Trevelin Queen, questionable, G League
- Jaylen Brown, available, facial fracture
- JD Davison, out, G League
- Danilo Gallinari, out, left knee
- Mfiondu Kabengele, out, G League
- Payton Pritchard, doubtful, left heel
