DFS NBA Position Coach: March 27

Rodney Stuckey Headshot

Stuckey (knee), who is schedule to undergo an MRI on Monday, is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Stuckey was pulled early from Sunday's matchup with the 76ers due to left knee soreness, but the fact that he's slated to undergo an MRI likely means the Pacers have some concerns over the injury. The Pacers head into a back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday, so there's a chance coach Nate McMillan could take a cautious approach and hold Stuckey out for at least one of those contests. That said, while we wait for the results of the MRI, Stuckey will be given a questionable designation and more clarity should be provided following Tuesday's morning shootaround.

Ian Mahinmi Headshot

Mahinmi (hip) was a full participant in Monday's practice, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Mahinmi appeared to suffer an injury during Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, as he was restricted to just nine minutes off the bench. However, his full participation in Monday's practice indicates it's likely a non-issue and it shouldn't hamper his ability to play in Tuesday's game against the Lakers. Look for Mahinmi to continue to back up Marcin Gortat at center, which usually affords him minutes in the upper teens or low 20's on most nights.
4:05 pm (EST)
Joe Harris Headshot

Harris (shoulder) will remain out Tuesday against the 76ers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

The Nets haven't provided much in the way of an update on Harris' status, but he's missed nearly a calendar month with a sprained left shoulder. Expect him to continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis as the regular season nears its close.
3:54 pm (EST)
Sean Kilpatrick Headshot

Kilpatrick (hamstring) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Kilpatrick has missed the last seven games with a sore left hamstring, but after nearly two weeks off for recovery, he's finally nearing a return to full strength. Barring any late setbacks during shootaround, look for Kilpatrick to rejoin the rotation on Tuesday, which could mean a few less minutes for guys like Randy Foye, Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie.
3:54 pm (EST)
Bojan Bogdanovic Headshot

Bogdanovic (back) was a full participant in Monday's practice, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Bogdanovic recently dealt with a stiff back, which kept him sidelined for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers. That said, his availability for a full practice Monday likely means he's over the injury and should be good to go moving forward. With the Wizards going into a back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Wizards could try and keep Bogdanovic on some sort of minutes restriction, although nothing official has been reported on that front. Unless the Wizards indicate something different, look for Bogdanovic to rejoin the lineup on Tuesday against the Lakers.
3:48 pm (EST)
Brandon Ingram Headshot

Ingram (knee) was held out of Monday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

Ingram originally suffered the injury in Friday's game against the Timberwolves and was subsequently held out on Sunday vs. the Trail Blazers. He's still dealing with some discomfort and was held out of Monday's practice to receive treatment, so it appears unlikely that he'll be cleared in time for Tuesday's tilt with the Wizards. With Ingram expected to remain sidelined, Corey Brewer is the favorite to pick up another start, while David Nwaba is also in line to see added minutes.
3:39 pm (EST)
Rodney Stuckey Headshot

Stuckey (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.

Stuckey left Sunday's game against the 76ers with what was diagnosed as a sore left knee, but the Pacers' decision to send him in for further scans suggests the team is concerned he might be dealing with a more severe issue. It doesn't seem promising that Stuckey will be able to suit up Tuesday against the Timberwolves, but official word on that front probably won't come until after the Pacers' morning shootaround. C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis would likely be in line for a few extra minutes apiece if Stuckey is ruled out.
3:14 pm (EST)
Tiago Splitter Headshot

Splitter (calf) was recalled Monday from the D-League's Delaware 87ers, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

Splitter hasn't played in an NBA game in over a year as he's dealt with a lingering calf injury. He played in two games with the 87ers during his one week stint with the team and he appears to be nearing a return to action.
2:29 pm (EST)
Thabo Sefolosha Headshot

Sefolosha (groin) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sefolosha will be missing his second consecutive game due to his strained right groin. The injury isn't through the be very serious but it could sideline him for a few days more. His status for Wednesday's game against the 76ers is up in the air currently. Look for Taurean Prince, who started in Sefolosha's place on Sunday, to see extra time once again.
1:57 pm (EST)
Paul Millsap Headshot

Millsap (knee) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Suns, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While an MRI over the weekend came back clean, Millsap is still battling discomfort in his left knee and will miss a sixth consecutive game Tuesday. That means Ersan Ilyasova will be in line for another start at power forward, while rookie Taurean Prince will likely get the nod at small forward in place of Kent Bazemore (knee), who's also been ruled out. Atlanta heads into Tuesday's in desperate need of a win after dropping its previous seven games.
