Indiana Pacers Roster Report 2009-11-13


Indiana Pacers Roster Report 2009-11-13ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard T.J. Ford, Shooting guard Brandon Rush, Small forward Dahntay Jones, Power forward Danny Granger, Center Roy Hibbert. Bench -- Guard Earl Watson, Guard Luther Head, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward Tyler Hansbrough, Guard A.J. Price.

PLAYER NOTES:

--G T.J. Ford made a brief five-minute appearance against the Warriors. The Pacers' starting point guard suffered a severe case of back spasms when he pump-faked Golden State guard Monta Ellis in the first quarter. Ford immediately clutched his back, called a timeout and went straight to the locker room.

--G Earl Watson showed why he's started 156 games in his career against the Warriors. Watson, filling in for the injured T.J. Ford, had 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals in 35 minutes.

"At first it was kind of an awkward situation not knowing how Ford was doing," Watson said. "But I knew I had to get into the flow of the game no matter what and take leadership on the court."

--F Danny Granger can do more than just shoot three-pointers. He can rebound and drive to the basket, too. Granger broke out of his early-season shooting slump by scoring 31 points on 12-of-24 shooting and grabbing a career-high 16 rebounds. He made a concerted effort to drive to the basket early in the game instead of settling for three-pointers.

"I think Danny moved and he also passed well, especially in the first half," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said. "he found his teammates, scored, distributed the ball, rebounded. He played a very, very solid brand of basketball."

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G Mike Dunleavy (knee) is out indefinitely with a knee problem. He suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from knee surgery prior to the start of training camp.

--G Travis Diener (toe) has only practiced once since the start of training camp because of a toe problem that bothered him last season.

--F Jeff Foster will miss at least two weeks with a high right ankle sprain, suffered in the first half of the Oct. 30 game against Miami.

--F Troy Murphy is out with a sore lower back.

--G T.J. Ford only played five minutes against Golden State because of back spasms.
