The Indiana Pacers will be forced to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night without two players.
More specifically, Caris LeVert (kidney) and T.J Warren (foot) will not be available for the game against the Lakers.
LeVert is expected to return to action in late March, after undergoing surgery for kidney cancer in late January.
“Caris LeVert played in practice today. He’s getting closer and closer, it won’t be too much longer,” says Coach Bjorkgren, via the Pacers official Twitter account.
At the same time, Warren (left foot stress fracture) remains out of action for Indiana and there is no timetable for his return.
On the other hand, the Lakers are also dealing with several issues and their injury report once again includes plenty of players.
