Sounds like with pre-season injuries the Pacers are picking up where they left off last season.

A sore jaw?? What does that have to do with basketball. Really tired of the injured Pacer syndrome.

The Pacers have an injury problem? Now there's a news flash. I can't remember the last time the Pacers had a completely healthy team. Its been quite some time. I would have to guess it goes back to the Larry Brown days. Hmmm...that was right before Larry Legend showed up on the scene. I still love the Pacers, but this season is already lost. There's always next year...or the year after that...When does JO's contract expire???? Ok then...the year after that one.

Tinsley must be looking for an excuse to start cutting games again. He's about as durable as kleenex. When the Pacers start cutting, Tinsley and Jackson should be at the top of the list.

I don't know about other NBA teams, but the preseason injuries seem to be a growing problem for this group of Pacers. For the past 5+ years, that's pretty much all we hear about during the preseason. Could it be that 2/3 of this team just doesn't want to waste their time preparing for the all important start of to season?

If preseason tickets were no more than $5.00, I'd have lessthe of the problem with this. But under these conditions, the fans have very little reason to attend such uninspired exhibitions. With the appearance of questionable dedication and conditioning (along with a number of other character problems exhibited by certain players) fans are left with little reason to jump onboard.

I think that the old saying "no pain, no gain" has just been proven to be false!!

Wow, that didn't take long. All Pacers should sign per-game contracts because they're gonna get injured sometime- it's just a matter of time.

Hey "Jamie" (aka Jamaal) for your info the WNBA plays during the summer. Maybe you should play with them! You could do a fancy "tuck" and dunk for a halftime show.

What ever you do don't cut Green,Marshal,White,or Powell.
Trade for a first round draft choice by packaging anybody but JO or Al.

Despite their talent (which is debatable)...I wish the Pacers would trade Tinsley and Jackson. They seem like the last two 'chemistry' issues we have left. The new, young players are what we need: Williams, White, Marshall, Greene, Powell.

I have been a Pacer fan since day one so no matter how disenchanted I get with them,they will still be my team of choice.My biggest complaint is with the coverage.We have had only one game on TV & WIBC(,the voice of the Indiana Pacers)cannot be heard outside the Indy city limits.I believe since they are the Indiana Pacers and not just the Inianapolis Pacers,the fans outside of Indy should hear the games.
