The Indiana Pacers Recall Rakeem Christmas from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants
After spending one night in the NBA Development League with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Rakeem Christmas was recalled to the Indiana Pacers.
The Indiana Pacers are showing why it pays to have an NBA Development League team as they have recalled Rakeem Christmas from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
The Pacers have a thin roster with the injuries to Paul George, C.J. Miles, Kevin Seraphin, and Myles Turner (tweaked his ankle last night), so Rakeem’s services are needed back on the NBA roster.
Indiana hasn’t announced the status of Seraphin or Turner for tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
The Pacers have recalled Rakeem Christmas from Fort Wayne. He could be needed tonight with Kevin Seaphin (knee) & Myles Turner (ankle) hurt.

Whether Christmas plays tonight or not, having another body — and the chance for Rakeem to get more NBA experience — ready to go from Fort Wayne makes life a little easier for the Pacers.
