The Pacers road through March takes them nation’s capital.
The Pacers find themselves in D.C. to play the Wizards on Monday night while the NCAA Elite Eight is played in Indy. All of a sudden, the Pacers are trying to win their third consecutive game as they continue to incorporate Caris LeVert into the playing rotation.
That rotation may be down one with sharp-shooting reserve, Doug McDermott listed as questionable after leaving the win over Dallas with a sprained ankle. If McBuckets can’t go, Aaron Holiday should get a chance to be back in the mix.
As for the Wiz, they have a crowded injury list with all eyes on leading scorer, Bradley Beal who is questionable while dealing with a right hip bruise. Washington is looking for consecutive wins despite dropping 8 of their last 10 games.
