Rodney Stuckey (foot) will miss the rest of the preseason.

He will be reevaluated again before the start of the regular season, but nothing has been confirmed yet. He remains an intriguing scoring option as the Pacers are lacking scorers. He can't contribute to your fantasy team unless he is on the court, so his health is worth monitoring.

David West is out for the rest of the preseason due to his ankle injury.

The ankle injury looked terrible on Saturday. The good news is that the X-rays were negative which means the ankle is not broken. The word is that he'll be out the rest of the preseason and there is a danger of missing some regular season action as well. Luis Scola will start but Chris Copeland is probably the preferred target in a vacuum because of his output in 3-pointers and higher upside.

David West will have an MRI on his injured ankle Monday.

X-rays came back negative the other day, but the ankle isn't showing much in the way of improvement. The MRI will let us know if there's any structural or ligament damage which could hold West out even longer in his recovery. Expect the team to announce the results at some point Monday afternoon.

X-Rays were negative on David West's ankle.

The Pacers are calling it a sprain but coach Frank Vogel said he was unsure as to when West would return. He'll be re-evaluated Sunday so for now, consider him day-to-day.

David West was helped off the floor with an ankle injury Saturday night. His return is questionable.

The severity of the injury is unknown, but it would be a surprise if West is able to return to Saturday's game. Chances are, the Pacers will hold their starting power forward out of the rest of the game as a precaution. We should be updated on his condition soon.

C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey will not play on Saturday. Both players are dealing with sore feet.

Neither injury appears to be serious, as it is most likely that their body's are just adjusting to more basketball after a lighter offseason. They should both be back on the court by next week.

Chris Copeland is walking gingerly after grabbing his left knee.

Knee injuries are tricky for basketball players. The Pacers have dealt with enough injuries, and an injury to Copeland would hurt their forward depth even more. Check back for an update on the 6'8'' forward.

Ian Mahinmi is out of tonight's game with a sore right shoulder and will not return.

Although he won't return to action, he is getting closer to 100 percent. Like last season, Mahimni will be Roy Hibbert's primary back up, but could be due for a larger role if Hibbert went down.

Evan Turner has been ejected from Wednesday's preseason game.

Turner has found a new home in Boston, but his playing time has yet to be further defined. He figures to be the back-up small forward, but recent reports said he could even get time at point guard while Rondo is out. If he does get substantial playing time while Rondo is out, he will be useful, but after that, not so much.

Roy Hibbert and George Hill are likely to sit out against the Mavericks on Sunday.

Hibbert is likely getting a day of rest, which will allow the coaching staff to evaluate some of the younger talent on the roster. Hill suffered a minor back bruise in the game on last Tuesday, and is also getting a day of rest to heal up, while the team gets a chance to see what else the roster holds at point guard in C.J. Watson, Rodney Stuckey, and Donald Sloan.
