Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers missed Friday’s practice due to a stomach ailment, as per Underdog NBA.
Nevertheless, Coach Rick Carlisle has expressed optimism about the star point guard’s availability for the upcoming clash against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.
As of now, there is uncertainty regarding Haliburton’s status for the game, with the Pacers yet to release their official injury report.
His absence would be a significant setback, considering he delivered an impressive 20-point, 11-assist double-double during the season opener on Wednesday.
In the event that Haliburton can’t play, it’s likely that Andrew Nembhard, T.J. McConnell, and Bruce Brown would see increased playing time and responsibilities when facing the Cavaliers.
