Reserve Pacers doing well to hang with Golden State so far. It’s 18-17 so far. Duarte and Bitadze making their presence felt – 10:18 PM

Like I’ve said before, Steph Curry hits the most F U shots in the league. – 10:16 PM

Watching Warriors-Pacers—-conversation on the All Star voting- here’s MY take—it’s an exhibition game- a game for the fans. If fans want player A over player B…go with it. People need to chill. I will tell you-we all know..DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine are All Stars. No debate. – 10:11 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Goga Bitadze with 6 early points. Key for him will be staying out of foul trouble. #Pacers10:11 PM

Goga hasn’t played much in his career but has blocked several superstars in his minutes. Just got Steph Curry on a layup. – 10:08 PM

Mike Woodson might be the happiest man in Indiana tonight – 9:31 PM

Jonathan Wasserman @NBADraftWass
Great win for Mike Woodson with Indiana taking down Purdue despite Jackson-Davis making one shot all game. Woody looked like he just won the Super Bowl. – 9:30 PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
STATEMENT win by Indiana and Mike Woodson over No. 4 Purdue.
Did it with virtually nothing from TJD due to foul trouble, but the backcourt of Rob Phinisee and Xavier Johnson was awesome. – 9:28 PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
Rob Phinisee gives Indiana a 66-65 lead over Purdue with 17 seconds left.
Purdue’s perimeter defense brutal the last couple possessions. – 9:24 PM

Still no full contact work for James Wiseman. Warriors haven’t had much practice time/opportunity lately. Steve Kerr acknowledges stalled nature of it: “I’m aware I’m the boy who cried wolf. When it happens, it happens and we’ll let you know.”

Malcolm Brogdon (right Achilles) and Caris LeVert (right calf) are both OUT tonight, per Rick Carlisle. He also said Domantas Sabonis (left ankle) will miss “a few games,” so I wouldn’t expect to see him the rest of this road trip. #Pacers8:41 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LaVert are both OUT tonight versus the Warriors, per Rick Carlisle, joining Sabonis and Turner as unavailable players. The Pacers limped to Chase Center after a four-hour fog delay as well on their second night of a back to back. – 8:40 PM

Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert are both OUT tonight for the Pacers. All 5 guys who were supposed to be starters for the Pacers this season are unavailable this evening. – 8:39 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Sabonis will miss at least a few games with a left ankle sprain, Rick Carlisle says.
Before tonight, he has only missed one game this season. – 8:38 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers who are OUT tonight at Warriors — the second night of a back-to-back:
Brogdon (sore right Achilles)
LeVert (sore right calf)
Sabonis (left ankle sprain)
Turner (left foot)
… plus Warren and McConnell. – 8:38 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Rick Carlisle on Domantas Sabonis’ ankle and how long he will be out: “No definitive time but he’ll miss at least a few games I think. We’ll see.” – 8:38 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Carlisle on Domantas Sabonis injury: “No definitive timetable. He’ll miss at least a few games.” – 8:38 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Still no James Wiseman update after @Monte Poole asked Steve Kerr. Kerr explained the Warriors haven’t practiced in a week, and they won’t practice Saturday after the back-to-back. “Not an easy one to figure out,” said Kerr about a timeline for Wiseman’s return. – 8:34 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Rockets injury report is clean ahead of tomorrow night’s game at the Warriors – 8:32 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
No new update for James Wiseman yet. Steve Kerr says he won’t have one by the end of this week because the team hasn’t practiced, and won’t before Monday.
“This whole process has been frustrating, for James above all … This just has not been an easy one to figure out.” – 8:25 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr on Andrew Wiggins’ All-Star candidacy: “I really, really hope he makes it. I think he deserves it.” – 8:25 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors skipped scheduled practice and had an in-arena home run derby yesterday. Steve Kerr said he felt the team was “tired” after a ton of travel lately and this was chance for a refresh.

Steve Kerr on James Wiseman: “This has just not been an easy one to figure out. We’re still hopeful he’ll be cleared for contact soon, but there hasn’t been an opportunity for that to happen this week.” – 8:23 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala are out tomorrow against the Rockets, resting on the second side of a back-to-back. – 8:22 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Steve Kerr says Klay Thompson will not play tomorrow in the second of a back to back. He will play tonight. No update on James Wiseman. – 8:22 PM

Klay Thompson will sit tomorrow. – 8:21 PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
That’s one heck of a first half for Indiana. Especially considering TJD barely played due to early foul trouble.
Rob Phinisee was awesome, Indiana’s defensive intensity was terrific and the Hoosiers go into the break up 9 against Purdue. – 8:09 PM

#Sixers shooting guard Seth Curry is listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers with left ankle soreness. – 7:32 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers have listed Seth Curry (ankle soreness) as questionable to play tomorrow vs. the Clippers. Danny Green (hip), Shake Milton (back) and Matisse Thybulle (shoulder) remain out. – 7:01 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Monty Williams said the Suns’ practices on this trip have been really good and turned into going over 2 hours because they didn’t have much else to do anyway. When they were in Indiana and practicing in Hinkle Fieldhouse, he shared the history of that building with the team. – 6:07 PM

Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
For the start of a home back-to-back, the Warriors will be without veteran Otto Porter Jr. against the Pacers on Thursday. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/20/inj…6:05 PM

I’m hosting Warriors pregame and postgame again tonight! Tune in to see if the Warriors continue their domination on the home court, versus a depleted Pacers team. Could Steph, Klay, and Wiggins each go for 20+? pic.twitter.com/jEAjLyO5LI4:48 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors will face a depleted Pacers team a night after they beat the Lakers in Los Angeles. Domantas Sabonis is out. Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert are questionable. Myles Turner, T.J. Warren and T.J. McConnell have already been out with injuries for Indiana. – 4:42 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
No surprise, Domantas Sabonis is OUT tonight against the Warriors with a sprained left ankle. Caris LeVert and Malcolm Brogdon are questionable with a sore right calf and sore right Achilles, respectively.
Obviously Myles Turner, TJ Warren and TJ McConnell are out. #Pacers4:40 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Domantas Sabonis is officially OUT tonight with a left ankle sprain. Carlisle should provide more clarity pregame. Caris LeVert (sore right calf) and Malcolm Brogdon (sore right Achilles) are questionable. Same normal cast of guys (Warren Turner McConnell) out as well. – 4:34 PM
