Will Tyrese Haliburton face Celtics? Update Pacers star’s knee injury

Published Categorized as NBA

The Indiana Pacers trail the Chicago Bulls by 1.5 games for the 10th and final Eastern Conference Playoff spot.

Taking on Jayson Tatum and the rest of the Boston Celtics on Friday will be no easy task, so they’ll need to be at their best if they want to win.

When will Haliburton be back in action? Knee injury update for Pacers’ star

If All-Star point guard Tyrese Haliburton can play, the Pacers have a good chance of beating the Celtics.

The 23-year-old has missed the last six games for his team due to a lingering ankle injury, and at this point, it remains uncertain if Haliburton will be able to suit up on Friday night.

Tyrese Haliburton is listed as probable for tonight’s game versus the Heat despite a sprained right ankle. This means that he ”may or may not” play on Friday night against Boston.

In the absence of the star point guard, T.J. McConnell and Andrew Nembhard have seen increased playing time and may continue to do so on Friday.

The 6-foot-5 point guard has been listed as questionable for Indiana’s last few games, but he is now officially listed as out.

Indiana is hoping that doesn’t happen against the Celtics because, without their star player, they have no chance of beating Boston.

The Pacers now have just nine games remaining in the regular season, and every contest will count from here on out. They haven’t been eliminated from playoff contention in the East just yet, but they need to start winning games if they want to stay there.
