Update, Aug. 17 — Warren is being listed as questionable to play in Game 1 vs. the Miami Heat. Warren had missed the seeding round finale but participated in practice on Sunday. If Warren can’t go, we will likely see more Justin Holiday and JaKarr Sampson in the rotation. Malcolm Brogdon and Victor Oladipo would be tasked with carrying the offense.
Update, Aug. 16 — Lamb won’t be back this season. Sabonis still has no timetable for a return. He could re-join the Pacers if they advance late into the East playoffs. Warren and Turner are expected to be ready for the start of the first round. Warren participated in practice Sunday.
