The Pacers will rest Paul George, David West and Lance Stephenson for the team's season finale, a game on the road against the Orlando Magic, according to Scott Agness, the team's beat reporter for Pacers.com.

Agness tweeted the lineup change on Tuesday afternoon, adding that C.J. Watson will also rest on Wednesday. All-Star center Roy Hibbert and guard George Hill will suit up, however. Luis Scola, Chris Copeland and the recently acquired Evan Turner will likely see a boost in minutes for the final game of the regular season.

The game against the Magic is essentially a non-issue for the Pacers, who have officially clinched the No. 1 seed in the East ahead of the Miami Heat. The playoffs officially begin April 19, with the Pacers headed for a first-round matchup with the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks.
