Pacers Shorthanded For Game With The Magic

Last updated on Wednesday, October 21, 2009

(ORLANDO, FL) - The Pacers will be shorthanded going into this evening’s game with the Magic.

Mike Dunleavy, Tyler Hansbrough, Travis Diener, Jeff Foster and TJ Ford are all sidelined with injuries.

Ford's hamstring injury is the newest on the lengthy list.

It is not believed to be serious and Head Coach Jim O'brien said at practice on Monday that if tonight's game was a regular-season contest, he would consider having Ford play.

Since it is still the preseason, Earl Watson is expected to start tonight.

The blue and gold are down to the 15-man regular season roster limit after cutting Rod Benson, Demetris Nichols and Lawrence Roberts on Monday.
