The Indiana Pacers injury-plagued season continues to get even more difficult. Starting point guard Malcolm Brogdon was shut for at least 10 days to deal with soreness in his right Achilles.

Brogdon has missed considerable time over the last month. He was out for nine straight games in late-December into early-January. He's only been able to play in three of the Pacers last 17 games overall.

Indiana is also without fellow starters Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and Caris LeVert, as well as sixth-man T.J. McConnell. In addition, T.J. Warren has yet to play this season as he rehabs from a foot injury. All of the absences have seen the Pacers tumble to 13th in the Eastern Conference, where they are six games out of the final spot in the Play-In tournament.
