Indiana Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton Declared Out for Friday's Game Against Milwaukee Bucks

The Indiana Pacers will be without their leader and star for at least another game. The team officially declared Tyrese Haliburton out for Friday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with knee and elbow injuries. Haliburton has been out since suffering his injuries in a January 11th 119-113 loss to the New York Knicks. Tonight's matchup will mark his ninth consecutive missed game and 11th missed game of the season.

Haliburton has lifted the Pacers to a surprising 24-26 record, good for ninth in the Easter Conference. His 20.2 points per game lead the team, his 10.2 assists lead the NBA, and his .613 true shooting percentage ranks second on the team behind starting center Myles Turner. Still only 22 years old, Haliburton appears well on his way to future All Star status and should remain an asset for the Pacers for years to come. Upon his healthy return, the Pacers will have a legitimate shot at the playoffs.

The Pacers travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies on Sunday.
