The Indiana Pacers have started to get hit with absences due to the NBA's health and safety protocols. That's led Indiana to a reunion with a familiar face, as the Pacers plan to sign Lance Stephenson to a 10-day hardship contract. This will be Stephenson's third go-around in Indianapolis.

Stephenson recently completed a 10-day deal with the Atlanta Hawks. The veteran wing appeared in six games for the Hawks.

The Pacers were Stephenson's first professional team. He spent the first four seasons of his career in Indiana. Stephenson rejoined the team late in the 2016-17 season. He then played all 82 games for the Pacers during the 2017-18 season.
