News: Watson missed Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, but he will play Friday.
Impact: Watson rolled his ankle and was unable to take part in Thursday's session, but coach Frank Vogel clarified that the guard will be available Friday. Watson had a 22-point game earlier this month, but he's far too inconsistent to use consistently in most formats.
News: Miles missed Thursday's practice with a sore foot, but he will play Friday.
Impact: Coach Frank Vogel did not sound concerned by the injury, and he stated after practice that Miles, as well as C.J. Watson (ankle), will both be available Friday. Miles is coming off of a 21-point performance Tuesday in Oklahoma City.
News: George (leg) went through a full practice Thursday, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports.
Impact: George worked with the first team and was not limited, though coach Frank Vogel admitted the star has a ways to go before being ready to return to game action. That said, the goal is for George to get back on the floor at some point before the end of the regular season, but the team is yet to provide a timetable. For now, George will continue to practice with the Pacers' medical staff keeping a very close eye on his surgically repaired leg.
