Dunleavy Could Play For Pacers At Phoenix

Last updated on Wednesday, January 7, 2009

(PHOENIX, AZ) - The Indiana Pacers continue their western road trip tonight as they face the Phoenix Suns.

The Pacers' trip got off on the wrong foot Monday night as the blue-and-gold fell to the Denver Nuggets 135-115.

Mike Dunleavy could make his season debut tonight after missing all of the regular season with a knee injury. Dunleavy's addition won't help the Indiana defense. The 135 points they surrendered in Denver was the most they have allowed in a regulation game in 15 years.

Head Coach Jim O'Brien says Dunleavy will be limited to 20 minutes per game. O'Brien did not commit to starting the seventh-year pro out of Duke, saying he wants Dunleavy available at the end of games.

The Indianapolis Star reports that guard Marquis Daniels was scheduled to undergo an MRI on his strained groin on Tuesday. Daniels was limited to twelve minutes in Monday's loss at Denver, scoring two points.
