INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indiana Pacers forward Doug McDermott is out for Wednesday's game against the Houston Rockets, but will hopefully be back by Friday, a league source told AllPacers.
McDermott is having a career year for the Pacers, averaging 13.1 points and 3.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game, 52% shooting from the field, and 38% from the three-point range.
During Tuesday night's game, the 6-foot-7 forward logged just about 10 minutes before exiting the game with a left ankle injury. He grabbed two rebounds and one steal before the injury.
In a nationally televised game on TNT, the Pacers fell to the Clippers 126-115 at home, ending their three-game winning streak. After a competitive game for three quarters, they got outscored 26-18 in the fourth quarter. Former Pacer Paul George went off for 36 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists. They resume action Wednesday at 9 P.M. E.T. in Houston.
There is still no word on if Myles Turner (ankle sprain) will return to action tonight. After the post-game last night, head coach Nate Bjorken said that a return for Turner was possible. As of right now, he is listed as questionable.
