According to reports, Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert has entered into the league’s health and safety protocol. LeVert will be out for tonight’s (May 18th) play-in game versus the Charlotte Hornets. LeVert would miss from 10 to 14 games while in the protocol.
In the past 10 games, LeVert is averaging 24.8 points, 7.4 assists and 4.9 rebounds.
The Pacers are currently the 9th seed in the Eastern Conference. They must win tonight’s match-up Lonzo Ball and the 10th seeded Hornets to stay in playoff contention.
Indiana is the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference and will host a win-or-go-home play-in game against 10th-seeded Charlotte. However, if the Pacers pull out a win, they will face the loser of the Boston Celtics-Washington Wizards game with a chance to earn the 8th seed and a first-round series versus the Philadelphia 76ers.
