The Clippers are on a roll, having won three games in a row after alternating wins and losses to start the new year. They face a tough Pacers team that have won four of their last six games.
Led by Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon, who are both having career years, the Pacers will be a legitimate test for Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers, who are among the top contenders for this year’s NBA title.
Indiana Pacers: Team News
The Indiana Pacers will be without guard Caris LeVert, who they acquired as part of a bigger trade that involved James Harden going to the Brooklyn Nets.
LeVert was supposed to replace Victor Oladipo as a starter but an MRI revealed a small mass on the 26-year-old’s left kidney, which will keep him out of commission indefinitely.
Goga Bitadze (right ankle), Brian Bowen (groin), Jeremy Lamb (knee) and Jalen Lecque (ankle) are listed as day-to-day. Lamb has been out since February of last year when he tore his ACL but he is nearing a return to action.
T.J. Warren underwent foot surgery earlier this month and remains on the Indiana Pacers' injured list until further notice.
Injured: T.J. Warren
Doubtful: Goga Bitadze, Brian Bowen, Jeremy Lamb, Jalen Lecque
LA Clippers: Team News
When the LA Clippers take the court against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, they could field an almost complete line-up. Lou Williams is day-to-day and will likely be a game-time decision because of a hip injury. Williams missed Friday's contest against the Sacramento Kings after playing in all of the Clippers’ previous games this season.
Meanwhile, point guard Patrick Beverley did not suit up versus the Kings due to personal reasons but he wasn’t ruled out of tonight’s game.
Rookie Jay Scrubb recently had a cast removed on his surgically repaired foot. Once he is cleared to return, Scrubb will more than likely be assigned to the LA Clippers’ G League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers, as per Adam Zagoria.
Injured: Jay Scrubb
Doubtful: Lou Williams
