Pacers hoping to get injured players back soon
Pacers coach Frank Vogel says he's hoping to get all four of his injured players back during a four-game road trip that begins Wednesday night in Houston.
Indiana played Monday night without swingmen Danny Granger and Lance Stephenson, point guard George Hill and power forward David West.
Vogel says Stephenson (strained right hip flexor) probably will play Wednesday night and that West could play. West has missed the past five games with a sprained lower back but did some post-practice work Tuesday.
Granger, who has missed most of the season with patellar tendinitis in his left knee, and Hill (strained left groin) are more likely to miss at least one more game.
