Pacers Open 2009/2010 Regular Season

Last updated on Tuesday, October 27, 2009

(ATLANTA, GA) - The Indiana Pacers open the 2009-2010 regular season tomorrow night when they face the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

The Pacers are coming off back-to-back 36-and-46 seasons under third-year Head Coach Jim O'Brien as the Blue-and-Gold look to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

Injuries were a problem for Indiana during the pre-season and it does not look like first-round draft pick Tyler Hansbrough will make his Pacers debut against the Hawks.

The 13th overall selection in last June's draft has been sidelined by a shin injury.

Guard Mike Dunleavy will also start the season in street clothes as he recovers from knee surgery last spring.
