Miles and George are both set to undergo MRI’s today due to their injuries. Hopefully. for the Pacers, those MRI’s will come back clean. Paul George is the team’s best player by far and C.J. Miles was playing a huge role off the bench this season, averaging 14.4 points a game.
Nate McMillan said CJ Miles will have an MRI on his left knee tomorrow.
It will be tough to potentially be without all three of those players. The Pacers have a tough game in OKC tomorrow night and face the Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks after that. Those are all quality teams that are looking to make some noise in their respective conferences.
If Seraphin is also out, Al Jefferson would have no choice but to play most of, if not all of the backup center minutes. Al can obviously put the ball in the hoop, but he’s had a real hard time playing defense with his increasing age.
If I was the Pacers, I would even consider calling up Rakeem Christmas from the D-League if these injuries sideline those three players. Just for emergency depth or if you want to match up against a team like OKC differently. Either way, luck is not on the Pacers’ side right now.
